April Books Read


April was a slow reading month for me (but I did read lots of research papers), but I made up in quality for what I lacked in quantity.  What were your favorite reads this month?  I highly recommend all of the books below!

52) The Rivalry:  Mystery at the Army-Navy Game by John Feinstein – Stevie and Susan Carol are back

53) Bruiser by Neal Shusterman – thought-provoking

54) Sold by Patricia McCormick – powerful, heartbreaking story

55) Close to Famous by Joan Bauer – funny and heartwarming and bursting with hope!

56) The Words of Extraordinary Women selected & introduced by Carolyn Warner – some funny, some inspiring, all thoughtful

57)  Bullet Point by Peter Abrahams – gritty and fast-paced.  No happy endings here.

58) Little Women by Louisa May Alcott – it was time for yet another reread

59) Virals by Kathy Reichs

60) Pinch Hit by Tim Green – a sporty twist on the prince and the pauper


  1. You should read The Hunger Pains- a great parody of The Hunger Games. I’m still waiting for Braydon to finish- I have a book reading ratio of about 5:1 when it comes to him!

    • I want to read The Hunger Pains–and Night Light. Parody is one of my favorite forms of humor. You have done an awesome job reading this year. I’m glad you’ve discovered worlds beyond cats, too!
