Month In Review

Spring is here, finally!  Today I wore sandals.  That's a very big deal you see.  I'm not a fair-weather sandal wearer.  I don't break out the pedicure at the first ray of sunlight or as soon as the thermometer hits double digits.  I wait until I can wear them consistently.  And that my friends, looks to be now.

At the end of last month, I broke out my reading slump and it seems to have carried through to April.  I have quite a few books I read this past month that I am yet to review here, so that's a good thing.  Here is what I read, with my GoodReads ratings.

Captive in Iran by Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh

Friends & Foes by ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray ****

This Month
There are just so many good books sitting on my shelf waiting to be read and so many more coming out.  I'm looking forward to reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Studio Saint-Ex by Ania Szado together.  I am also looking forward to the release of Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.


  1. Nice books. I do want to read A Tale for the Time Being, when I get the time and if I can get a hold of one somehow!

  2. Nice month :) I busted out the sandals yesterday and was so happy to do so! But there is more snow in the forecast, ack!

    I'm still waiting to get my hands on a copy of A Tale for the Time Being...can't wait!

    I hope you have a great May!

  3. Thank you for reading my book!
