I have a confession, I did not read a SINGLE book throughout February and March. What a disgrace right? The truth id the last two month were crazy. Between lockdown & a high work load, I had no time to just sit and read with a good book. A lot of my reading time was also during my commute, I was lucky enough to pass my driving test and therefore cut out my reading time. NOT GOOD.
However, as this lockdown craziness has calmed down, I’ve been making reading a top priority, whether I’m reading in bed or in the garden, I’ learning to make time for it while being at home. So here is my reading list for April.
Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce
Another Beths Book Club suggestion. This did not disappoint, Blood Orange is very much a suspense thriller and one I just had to keep reading out of pure curiosity. Blood Orange, is about a young woman’s perfect life and how it slowly spins out of control as she uncovers more about her clients case. While I was actually frustrated with pretty much all the characters, this really was a page turner. Fully recommend!
Checking Out by Nick Spalding
I chose to read this book because I thought I was going to read something funny uplifting and rememberable. However, I have to say I was disappointed by Checking out. It’s about a really successful guy who gets a sudden diagnosis of a brain tumor and he completely revaluates his life. He then goes on a journey to try and get closure with his life and essentially find the answer. I was so unimpressed with this story, I just felt nothing for the characters and I Honestly just wanted this to be over, not the usual quality I expect from Nick Spalding.
And thats all I read this month, Its a short list for April but I am hoping to use the lockdown period in May as an excuse to get through more books!
