April is over.  The first third of the year has simply flown.  I’m having a good time, in terms of books it’s been a good start to the year.  I hope you’ve all had a good start to 2019 and a good April too.  I’ve read two more of my SPFBO finalists and the reviews will follow shortly – and at the moment I’m still  keeping on top of my reviews although I do have a few outstanding from last year.  This month I’ve read a total of 11.  My month in covers is here and my month in reviews looks like this:

Books read:  this month = 11

  2. A Time of Blood by John Gwynne

Books Bought: 

  1. The ABC Murders (Poirot) (Hercule Poirot Series Book 13 by Agatha Christie
  2. My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
  3. Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake Book 2) by Rachel Caine

Review Books:

Even more restraint this month than last – I realise I have some catching up to do and I can’t do that by constantly adding more so here it is:

  1. Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young – I’ve already read this and will review shortly – I really enjoyed it.
  2. For Emily by Katherine Slee
  3. The Absinthe Earl by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Cover compare:

I like both covers but the little blue shoe cover appeals more to me.

Which is your favourite?

Hope you’ve all had a good month.

    Looks like you had a great month of reading. And I didn’t even realize Little Darlings had multiple covers, but I do like them both a lot. The blue shoes are a really nice element, though!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, there was another cover too, blue, with a nappy pin – but it said ‘not yet finalised’ so I didn’t want to use it.

    My Lovely Wife – a seriously good read! Speaking of which, I’ve been seeing lots of thrillers on your reading lists/review copy posts lately. It’s a genre I want to read more of too, you gotta send over any recs! 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I liked the sound of that one – I did request it from Edelweiss but didn’t hear back so couldn’t resist buying a copy. I will do – I’m enjoying reading some thrillers in between but I still haven’t quite found exactly what it is that really hits the spot for me – I’m working on it though.

    Ooh you got a copy of The Absinthe Earl??😁 I cannot wait to read it😊

  4. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    WOW! Eleven books in a month… That’s what I call a Power Reader, indeed! 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s a better month than I normally have – 8 or 9 is more the norm.

    Lynn, I am pleased to hear you have had a good start to the year in your reading – I hope it will continue 🙂 Mine has been a slow start, however I did enjoy another three books in April – My particular favourite being the riotous Guards! Guards by Terry Pratchett. 😀

    11 is a great month! So glad you’ve been enjoying your reading year so far, hope it continues to be a good one. ❤
