April: What I read

Here's another terrible grief side effect:  I DON'T WANT TO READ.  Can you even?  I don't know what to say about it except... who cares?

But still, April was a good reading month:

13. The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley:  Meh.  You can probably skip this one.

12. When Death Becomes Life: Notes from a Transplant Surgeon by Joshua D. Mezrich: I wanted to like this-- I really did.  But the eugenics stuff was just too much for me to brush off casually like the author did.

11. American Spy by Lauren Wilkinson: I was not as riveted by this as the rave reviews suggest I should be, but I could appreciate how intricately crafted it was.

10. Trust Exercise by Susan Choi:  This was not as good as the reviews led me to believe it would be, either.  **shrug**

9. The Secret of Clouds by Alyson Richman:  This is sad.

8. The Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich:  I loved this and read it to help Harry with a book report.

7. An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen:  Yep.  Scary.

6. Inheritance by Dani Shapiro:  This is a really buzz-y book and for good reason.  Read it!

5. The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin:  Still awesome and worth a re-read for you as well.

4. Watching You by Lisa Jewell:  She is one of my very favorite thriller authors, and this did not disappoint.

3. Never Tell by Lisa Gardner:  A new DD Warren book?  Heaven!

2. The DNA of You and Me by Andrea Rothman:  I LOVED THIS ONE.  Such a sad, sweet love story.

1. Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reed:  THIS IS THE BOOK TO BEAT IN 2019.  Also, you should read all of this author's books and be amazed because they are all excellent.
