So, these were my #aprilreads As you can see I am a tad behind. 😳 Life is just busy ALL. THE. TIME. I can‘t lock down time to read.

Tagged book was my favourite, but Virgil Wander & In An Absent Dream were close seconds.

It was a fairly good month, but one of the slower months so far in 2019. Actually, May has been even slower. I‘ll post about that in July. 😂

1. Captain Marvel Vol 2: Stay Fly, Angels & Demons, In Cold Blood, & I‘m trying REALLY HARD with Wuthering Heights, but I‘m about to give up on that. 😳

2. Ayiti by Roxanne Gay. I picked it up at the library on Friday. I‘m very excited to get started on it.

3. Game of Thrones. I‘ve been disappointed with the new season though. There‘s been some cool bits, but mostly I just cringe my way through each episode.

I found something warm & comforting about this book. It gave me the feeling I get when I catch up with a friend over coffee, & we talk for hours.

The story unravels slowly, so patience is needed. It‘s written beautifully & I came out the other end glad that I persisted.

I read this as a friend received it as a part of book delivery gift we gave her! It‘s not a book I‘d normally choose, which makes me even happier that I gave it a chance.

Each book in this series has been so different & I love it! I felt really sorry for Lundy & could appreciate why she made the choices she did. I did feel the story was a little rushed in places, but I‘ve had this issue with every book. I guess it‘s expected when you read a novella & when you love a series so much & want to know every detail possible!

I wonder what we will learn about next in this series? 🤔

I‘m disappointed in myself for not giving this book enough of my attention. ☹️ I really struggled to keep up with the story. Because it was an ebook, I always read it in bed, before I fell asleep (my partner can‘t sleep with a lamp on). I find that I struggle immensely to focus on certain books at this point of the day.

No stars for this one because I think given the circumstances, I can‘t rate it properly, but for me this was a pan.

greenhairdontcare This read was a part of #WomenReadWomen2019 for the month of March. I‘m only a month behind! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 (edited) 7mo

I loved this, even more than I loved the first book. The #audiobook 🎧 are read by the author & Don‘s lines are read perfectly! I laughed, I almost cried, but mostly I became FURIOUS during this book!

I found myself getting angry at the way Don was treated throughout the book, not just by strangers or that HORRIBLE psychologist, Lydia, but by his friends & family!

(More in the comments. 👇🏻 I have a lot to say about this book!)

greenhairdontcare I struggled to understand why Rosie, Gene, everyone got so annoyed with Don. I can appreciate how frustrating he would be at times & I understand that everyone was looking out for pregnant, stressed out Rosie, but I felt there was an utter lack of compassion & empathy for Don‘s needs & how he was processing the situation! I feel this may have been the point of this story. (edited) 7mo
greenhairdontcare I find myself so absorbed in these books. I always come out the other side viewing the world & thinking, a little differently. I‘m keen to start the third book in the series! 7mo
Messiejessie I simply loved these books! They give you so much to think about. I also found the second book really frustrating. Which yes - I agree, was probably the whole point! 7mo
Messiejessie The 3rd book is even better! Enjoy 😊 7mo

1. Tagged book I started in early March because of #womenreadwomen2019 but I am yet to finish! 🤦🏻‍♀️ The discussion for it fell the same day as my son‘s 2nd b‘day. I had no time to participate. Other books I‘m reading are The Rosie Effect & Virgil Wander.
2. Swing Time by Zadie Smith. I had to look on Goodreads for this one as majority of books I read are on my Libby app, so I don‘t see the cover regularly.

After seeing Captain Marvel at the cinemas a month ago, I was keen to get back into reading stories about her! I never read this run of Captain Marvel. I found the story predictable & a bit boring, unfortunately. What I did like about it was the way Captain Marvel found her feet as a leader on a ship, & not at the front, fighting! The relationship development between Marvel & Abigail was great & I loved the banter between the two.

This has been my least fav in the series so far. I still think it‘s worth a read because I think the whole series is fantastic! Each one has been so different. McGuire has a lot to say & I think the world needs to hear more voices like hers! Cora, one of the newbies to the story, was someone I could relate to in terms of how she deals with societies issues with her weight. It was also great to have Kade back! 😁

I went into this graphic novel knowing very little about it. I‘m a sucker for time travel, so I was sucked into this book quite quickly. The colours in the art were incredibly appealing to me as well. I loved Clowes interpretation of the future.

I hadn‘t touched a graphic novel IN OVER A YEAR so it was a real delight to get back into this style after a long break.

I‘ve been reading a lot of feminist literature lately. It‘s ignited something inside me. This book set that fire into a blaze! 🔥🔥🔥 Not only did I come out the other side enraged, but I gained a deeper understanding & appreciation for everything women living through the 1960‘s - 1970‘s have gone through.

I‘m not really sure why I picked this in the first place. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘ve heard lots of great things about Zoe. I‘ve read some of her writing before & found it amusing. This book was a miss for me, BUT, I think if I were going through a break up or struggling with being single, it might help. None of it seemed new to me. Some of my views aligned with Zoe‘s, but there were a few things I didn‘t agree with at all.

A quick & easy #audiobook. 🎧 Jack was my favourite character in the first book, so I was pretty wrapped that she was one of the main characters this time around. I LOVED how McGuire touched on childhood & how a child‘s mind & views can be shaped. My only issues are that book feels a little short. It seems to move quite quickly. I also had an issue with the voice used in the audio book, but I‘ll talk about that in the comments. 👇🏻

greenhairdontcare The first book was narrated by Cynthia Hopkins, who did this excellent voice for Jack. Seanan McGuire (the author) narrates the second book & used a very different voice for Jack, one that I would never have imagined. It threw me. I‘m wondering if Jack‘s voice changed once she came out of The Moors? Is it meant to mimic Dr Bleakley‘s? McGuire uses a voice for Dr Bleakley that is very similar to what Hopkins used for Jack, just quieter. 🤔 9mo

She writes in such an engaging & entertaining way, that when she tells it like it is & points out the privileges that non-disabled people have, you bloody well listen!

I finished this days ago but I haven‘t been able to stop thinking about it. 💔 It was beautifully written. Historical fiction isn‘t always my cup of tea, but I enjoyed this. I knew nothing about Wilhelm Gustloff & now I want to know more because of this book.

I listened to the #audiobook version & I loved that each character was voiced by someone different.

The ONLY thing I didn‘t like was part of the ending. Otherwise, 4/5 for me.

After reading You last month, I was keen to read Hidden Bodies to see what Kepnes had in store for Joe! Unfortunately, I was left a little disappointed. It‘s entertaining, but it also goes overboard in terms of story & character. I thought we‘d learn more about Joe & why he is the way he is, but nothing new comes up. It felt a little repetitive at times. It hasn‘t ruined You for me, but I think this sequel was unnecessary. 😕

This lived up to my expectations! 😁 I personally enjoyed it even more than Fight Like A Girl. A lot of the information & views weren‘t new to me, but Ford has a response & explanation for EVERYTHING, so I found this side of the book really useful. I took my sweet time reading it because I wanted time to reflect on each chapter & then talk about it with my partner. It‘s another book that I think EVERYONE should read. 💚💚💚

Bailedbailed

Argh! My first bailed book for 2019. 😩 I got through a third of this audiobook & found it incredibly boring. I don‘t think the narrator helped either. I picked it because I wanted something to listen to & I thought All The Light We Cannot See was OKAY.

I don‘t think the book is entirely to blame. I‘ve been too busy to read this week, so I‘m quite behind on my goals. Any free time I‘ve had I‘ve been too tired to read! 😴

Hope_a Is that bad? I‘m looking forward to read this, because I liked 10mo
greenhairdontcare @Hope_a I didn‘t mind ATLWCS but I wasn‘t in love with it. If you liked it then you might like this! I‘m a big fan of short stories but the first three just didn‘t grab & hold my attention. I found the second story quite frustrating & despised the main character. (edited) 10mo

1/20 for the #bucketlist20 #readingchallenge

Wow! What a great start to the challenge! What I loved about this book was that even though it was published in 1953, you couldn‘t tell. It could have easily been written this year! It‘s well known that this book is about censorship, but what I think it really focuses on is books. Books are important! Books make the world go round!

Which Bradbury book should I read next?

“I watched white people reflect on the dynamics of their own lives, and start to consider how race had shaped it.”

Every white person needs to read this. Once read, they need to do something about making a change. 👍🏻

I appreciated the honesty in Reni‘s book & while I felt a range of emotions from sadness to guilt, from rage to hope, I agree that dwelling on these emotions isn‘t going to help anyone.

I picked this audio book with no prior knowledge of what it was about. The blurb sounded interesting & it‘s a fairly short read, so I gave it a go. I thought it was fantastic! A really great blend of horror, sci-fi & fantasy, plus I‘m a sucker for stories about young adults struggling to find their place in the world. Jac was my fav character by far but I found myself intrigued by most of the characters! I can‘t wait to read more in this series!

This has been on my to read list for a long time! I‘ve never read an Orwell book & it‘s one of my dad‘s favourite stories. He got me to watch the film forever ago, so I knew the story already. I still think that this book is clever in the way it uses animals to tell the tale. I find myself getting so angry on behalf of the animals, because of the way they‘re treated in the end. Simon Callow is perfect for the audio. 👌🏻 So talented.

This has been my favourite book of 2019 (at least so far!) I felt I could relate to so much of this, despite the huge differences between Mara & I. I shed a few tears during different parts & found myself reflecting on my own teenage experiences with friends, other girls & boys.

I enjoyed listening to the audio book version. Mara is easy & entertaining to listen to. I wouldn‘t be surprised if this ranks as one of my top books of 2019! 😁

Let's Play Make-Believe | James Patterson

Panpan

This book just didn‘t do it for me. I like the idea of a short story that is chock full of thrills & chills, but it was too over the top for me & I felt the end didn‘t make a whole lot of sense.

I was also turned off to discover that James Patterson has a team of writers that he works with. A lot of people believe the Bookshots are a bit of a money grab, & after reading this, I tend to agree.

I‘m willing to give Patterson another go. Any recs?

Joanster5 I read some of his years and years ago. I remember liking Suzanne‘s diary for Nicholas. I also liked when the wind blows. I read a couple of the Alex Cross books. Crime books aren‘t really my thing but I do remember liking them. 11mo
greenhairdontcare @Joanster5 Thanks heaps! I‘m not huge on crime books either but felt I should give some of his books a chance. 11mo
