I literally could not put my reading books down in April. I just powered through each one and ended up finished eight books, which I think is the most I have ever read in one month.
May, on the other hand, has not been as successful in terms of book reading.
Here’s a list of all the books I read, with links included for the ones I have already written a post about.
The Post Office Girl by Stefan Zweig – CLICK here to read my review
How to be Danish by Patrick Kingsley – CLICK here to read my review
The Dry by Jane Harper – CLICK here to read my review
Why Fashion Matters by Frances Corner – CLICK here to read my review
The big 5 by Dr Sanjiv Chopra with David Fisher – CLICK here to read my review
The Reader on the 6.27 by Jean-Paul Didierlaurent – A kooky, typically French and romantic story. The protagonist, who reads random pages from books to the riders on the 6.27 train, finds a usb containing the diary entries of an unidentified girl. He then falls in love with this girl through her words and successfully tracks her down.
The Woman I wanted to be by Diane Von Furstenberg – This book is great value. You really get to know Diane, her life, her loves and her passions. She has some truly fantastic and enviable life experiences. DVF’s fashion story is also incredible. Diane goes through all the stages of her career and business, the beginning, the mistakes, the successes and all the in between parts.
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent – I honestly think part of the reason I haven’t read much this month, is because this book was so good. It’s still resonating within me. Burial Rites is Hannah Kent’s first novel and is based on a true story and set in Iceland in 1829. It is about Agnes Magnusdottir, a woman accused of murder for which her punishment is execution. You will have all the feels in this book. A much recommended read which will keep you eagerly turning the pages and googling ‘flights to Iceland’ at the same time.
