My April Reads

There’s a lot happening here this spring. A possible house purchase (fingers crossed because this one has a gorgeous garden), another trip out east to help my father, slow and steady progress on my current YA novel and plans in the works for another Laura Tobias title.

My head is so full with ‘to do’ lists and changing circumstances that I’ve found myself yearning for consistency: writers who deliver with good writing, excellent stories and a happy ending. The books I’m reading this month have given me all three:

At the gym: By Invitation Only by Dorothea Benton Frank

Beside the pond (and by pond I currently mean ocean): Cottage by the Sea by Debbie Macomber

Before bed: Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins

Books read to date in 2019: 17

  1. I’m always so impressed that you can read a number of novels at the same time. I have to stick to finishing one as it appears that’s all that my brain can absorb.

    All the best with your potential house purchase. I hope that your dad has made some progress. I understand how stressful this situation can be, especially when he is so far away.

    I’m re-reading some novels that really touched me, trying to discover how the author did what they did.

    I’ve just finished The Girls of August – Anne Rivers Siddons. A masterful author.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jodie! I don’t remember reading The Girls of August. Your recommendations have always resonated with me in the past so I’ll look for it. Things are moving forward with the house and my father, albeit slowly. But forward movement is good!
