It’s April already. April in my corner of the world means rusting Autumn leaves, soft rain on my window panes, still warm days but cooler nights and lots of hot drinks…especially my favourite hot drink of coffee. I love Autumn. Autumn is my favourite time to curl up on my favourite couch and get lost in a story. I’ve got quite a few netgalley reads outstanding and two lovely new netgalley reads to get lost in this month. So this April it’s time to dust off my digital bookshelves.
What I’m reading in April
- The Girl Who Was Taken | Charlie Donlea
- White Fur | Jardine Libaire
- Try Not To Breathe | Holly Seddon
- The Passenger | Lisa Lutz

Tell me, What are you reading this April?

I am quite envious as autumn is my favourite, but it’s spring here. I’ll still take the temperate warmth & pretty blossoms, but I long for autumn …
Autumn and Spring are the prettiest seasons I think. Both so full of colours.
Beautiful autumn- my favorite season. But this has been a long, cold, lonely winter, so I am embracing these moments of spring until they draw together into summer.
I try never to read more than one book at a time, but for some reason, I’m tangled in three at the moment: Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure; a collection of short stories by Lucia Berlin: A Manual for Cleaning Woman; and Leslie Marmon Silko’s classic Ceremony, about a Native American man returning to the USA after surviving the Bataan Death March during WWII. Not light reading to be sure, but astonishing and vital.
Ooh, I’m intrigued by the sound of your 3rd book. Might have to check it out.
We are in Early Spring here. Went for a lovely drive through the mountain yesterday to a place that has 11 waterfalls. Gorgeous scenery. I love Spring with it’s hope, and Fall with its lovely colours and cooler weather. And coffee any time. I’ll have to try some of these books. They sound good.
Wow…11 waterfalls! Sounds very picturesque. I can well imagine how gorgeous that scenery would have been Deb.
