I’m doing my April reading list a day early, since I know I won’t have any more books finished by tomorrow.
- Anne’s House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery
A+. The last of the Anne of Green Gables books (at least before they start going in to her children). Loved it. Loved the whole series!
- The Hunger Games Trilogy: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
A. Solid books, really interesting, definitely keep you reading (fast!). The first two were my favorite, but I really appreciated the realistic, not all-wrapped-up ending of the entire series.
- Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
B. After being immersed in young adult books (Hunger Games) it was hard to transition to old-english style writing. Still, a fun book to read. I haven’t seen the movie, but I love me some Dame Judi Dench!
- Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman
A. A book of essays on books and reading and life. Really cute essays, funny, thoughtful, well-written. Loved all of it! Definitely recommend it.
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (audiobook)
A. I hadn’t read this book before, so it was my first time reading (or listening) to it. I listened to it in the car while at home I was reading The Hunger Games… it was an interesting juxtaposition for sure, as both address the future, government control, etc.
What books have you read this month that were particularly great (or not so great)?
