April: What I Read

Disappearance at Devil's Rock by Paul Tremblay: Oooooooh so freaky. Big thumbs up. **Audio

 The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay: THIS WAS SO DELIGHTFULLY SCARY. It was the first Tremblay book I have ever read, and I put the rest of his books on hold right away. So scary I could't even listen to it in the middle of the night. **Audio

Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand: Listen, it is still snowing this month in Wisconsin, so why not listen to a Christmas series? **Audio

Winter Stroll I am addicted to this series, and I am not afraid to admit it. **Audio

Winter Storm: DON'T JUDGE ME. **Audio

Winter Solstice: THIS ONE MADE ME CRY. LOVED. And! People from The Rumor (below) were in this book and I got closure I didn’t know I needed. *Audio

The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand: Can't stop. Won't stop. **Audio

The Next Thing You Know by Jessica Strawser: I don't think liked this, but I wonder why everyone else did? **2022 **Audio

The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James: I did not like this as much as I liked her other book, but it was still really spooky. **2022

Anne of Avonlea by LM Montgomery: This one was was a little boring and preachy.

19 Minutes by Jodi Picoult: Speaking of preachy... But also she is my very favorite when it comes to audiobooks I can lose myself in. **Audio

No Exit by Taylor Adams: Nightmare scenario. NIGHTMARE. I read this in one single elliptical workout.

By Any Other Name by Lauren Kate: A-dorable. **2022

Woman on Fire by Lisa Barr: Loved this fast-paced art thriller. **2022

A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham: So twisty and delightfully creepy. I sort of figured it out but not all the way.

Anne of the Island by LM Montogmery: I don't think I appreciated college Anne when I read this series as a child. What a delight she is!

The Boy With a Bird in His Chest by Emme Lund: Oh WOW. This one is definitely worth a read. **2022

Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery: Oh so lovely and delightful.

  I Know How She Does It by Laura Vanderkam: This books was GREAT! I plan to write a whole post about it (and who knows! Maybe I already have by the time this post publishes!), but if you have kids and a job, I think you should read it. **Audio

The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen: YES! This was twisty and suspenseful. I read it at dance and softball and I was able to tune out the noise and the wind. **2022

The Love Story of Missy Carmichael by Beth Morrey: I don't know how this ended up on my holds list because it's not a new book, but WOW! If you liked Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine then you will also love this one. **Audio

True Biz by Sara Novic: THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL. It's a coming of age novel and a celebration of deaf culture. I adored the characters, and the plot clipped along nicely. Plus, it was interspersed with discussion of ASL and important moments in deaf history. *2022

Kudos on all the books. You know how I feel about Anne. I'm tempted to re-read the first three again after visiting PEI last month...we'll see.
Currently reading and concurrently watching All Creatures by James Herriot. Another feel-good series.
