What I read in April | Monthly Wrap Up

When I set up to take the photos for this post…I realized I have read EIGHT books this month! Eight! I am so proud of myself! I also noticed that I read half of them in ebook format. I got used to reading on my Kindle and I particularly love it because it’s so easy to take it anywhere I go, and still have several books to choose from.

  1. First book I read in April was The Pearl by John Steinbeck. I began reading Steinbeck this year for the first time, and I love his books. My favorite is still Of Mice and Men up to now.

  1. Next, I read The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson. I didn’t know much about the book or the author, but it turned out to be a decent book. You can find my review on it here.

  1. Low (Volume 1) by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini was a comic that I actually pre-ordered from bookdepository. I read it as soon as I got it and I enjoyed it a lot. My review is here.

  1. Ten Days in a Mad House by Nellie Bly. After I read this, I decided to read all her work and write a special post about her. I still plan on doing that, I just haven’t found the time to inform myself more about her life.

  1. Around the World in Seventy-Two Days by Nellie Bly.

  1. I won’t say much about I Shall Live: Surviving the Holocaust Against All Odds by Henry Orenstein, but it became one of my favorite books. Read all my thoughts on the book here.

That was it, guys! Have you read any of these books? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Also, guys…read I Shall Live by H. Orenstein. I promise you it’s a great book!

OK, now it’s time to get out in the sun, it’s a wonderful day outside and there is a nice event in the park. Maybe I’ll blog about it 🙂 (there are books involved!).

Have a nice weekend everyone!
