april runs and reads

I ran 54 miles in April.  Not my best month, but I was feeling pretty down-and-out exhausted from pregnancy, so I’m happy I got in any miles!  Most mornings I’ve been doing 4 miles.  I’d like to increase to 5 or 6, but I’ll have to see how that feels and if it leaves me super tired the rest of the day.

And the books of April:

  • Autobiography of Us by Aria Beth Sloss
  • Dinner A Love Story by Jenny Rosenstrach (memoir): I love love love food memoirs.
  • Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson (nonfiction): Okay.  This book has language… a lot of language.  But the first four chapters or so, where she describes her childhood, had me cracking up so hard.  I immediately wanted my sisters to read it because I knew they would love it, too.  But yes, if you’re sensitive to language, this is NOT the book for you.  At all.
  • The Bathing Women by Tie Ning
  • The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat: Well hot dang,  I found another book that’s as good as In the Time of the Butterflies and Poisonwood Bible.  Go and read!!!
  • The House Girl by Tara Conklin: Good book.  I tore through it in about one Saturday.
  • Speaking From Among the Bones by Alan Bradley: This is the third (?) book in the Flavia de Luce series.  They’re mysteries, with the protagonist a 12 year old girl in England.  They’re super fun to read – I recommend!

What did you run or read this month?

  1. Oh gosh! You warning about language makes me think I better watch my mouth this weekend 🙂

    I LOVE how much you read! And that is a lot of running, too!

    Yikes. No books for me this month. Not even much studying. Or running. Ha ha ha.

  2. I read “Light Between Oceans” and it was amazing. It actually made me think of you…have you read it? If not, I think it’s one you’d really like.
