Top Books for April

This was in audiobook format and a reread, but honestly the one I totally enjoyed the best. It does make a good case for rereading when you have forgotten a good deal of it but you know you loved it!
Another audiobook. Set in southern England in 1940, in a small village. Amazing, superb narration and brilliant story.

Looking Forward to reading in May…

A new one from Emilie Richards that is published in June

And a new one in Brockmann’s Troubleshooters series. So looking forward to it.

  1. I'm always amazed by how many books you read! Wow, 15 in one month. I only read 4 books in April, but they were all excellent. And I have been doing VERY poorly on my TBR challenge because I've been reading for Booktopia & my 2 book groups. Back to my own shelves soon!


    Book By Book


  2. Happy May!!! You had a great April – and I see we read some of the same books 🙂 I have the Kate Morton book sitting on my shelf – I've read a few of her other books and have really enjoyed them. The Forgotten Garden is one of my favorite books!


  3. Great month! Thanks for sharing what you enjoyed, and for hosting our wrap-up links. Have a fabulous May!

    I see some books I am tempted to add to my stacks, like The Chilbury Ladies' Choir. I hope you enjoy Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans.
