April Reading List

daffodils at amyhoodarts.com

The daffodils are finally blooming around here.

Here we are, another month, another list of books. The house still hasn’t sold, we are getting things rolling for moving within two months anyway, my jaw aches constantly, and my attention span is wavery. I began and abandoned three books this month–that might be a record. Here is the list of books I read all the way through in April, with the ones I really liked/would recommend starred.

Rainey Royal, by Dylan Landis*
Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn*
Lost and Found, by Brooke Davis
Happy are the Happy, by Yasmina Reza, translated by John Cullen
Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande*
Dr. Mütter’s Marvels, by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz
How to Build a Girl, by Caitlin Moran*

Did you read anything especially good in April?

    I read a bunch, but nothing I loved. I even forced myself to read fiction – The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, which was good, but I wouldn’t re-read (my way of measuring how much I like a book, I guess).

    I recently got a night brace, because I was clenching my jaw during the night and I was afraid I would crack my teeth. My jaw feels much better than it used to in the morning, and I am also realizing when I am clenching it during the day, which helps a lot.

    I loved Gone Girl. So many plot twists. I used to feel like I had to finish a book I started but have since deceded that life is too short to read things I don’t like. You and the kids might like Russel Munro’s What If? Real science based answers to What If? questions.
