April has been a pretty average reading month, I’ve got four finished books in this wrap up, I’m really close to the end of 2 more books but they will have to go into next months list!
Did Not Finish
This month I DNF’d the audio book The lost flowers of Alice Hart by Holly Ringland, which I added to my TBR months ago after spotting in my local library. When I saw the audio book available I immediately got it. But, was sadly disappointed by how boring I found it, after about 1.5 hours in and having fallen asleep twice whist listening I knew it wasn’t for me. Great if you have insomnia.
H is for Hawk
A non fiction novel about a grieving woman’s attempts to tame a goshawk. I did not like this book half as much as I wanted too, being massively into nature myself. Nobody in that mental state should be taking on an animal. I appreciated the authors honesty but it was an uncomfortable read.
The Animals Of Lock wood Manor
A vintage style story set in War Time Britain, of forbidden romance and Hall roaming phantoms, not a paranormal story, one of precarious mental health and how how the greatest monsters in the night are sometimes human. I enjoyed this one!
Funny you don’t look autistic by Micheal Mcreary
I listened to the audio book for this as part of a library book club. The book is smart, funny and full of little tales about some of the social incidents the author has gone through. The tone is very self aware and confident and I feel like I learned a lot about what autism is and how some people treat you because of it. I’ll definitely be checking out some of his comedy shows.
Anne Of Avonlea by L.M Montgomery
The Sequel to Anne Of Green gables, as beautiful and touching as its predecessor. We follow Anne with her new role as teacher and the new and old friends she makes along her way. A pleasure to read. I’ll link to Amazon here* as I actually recommend you go read this one if you love Anne of Green Gables.
