I barely read anything this month, because I had just a couple other things to worry about… since we got married and all.

On April 28, 2018, I married my partner, best friend, training buddy, and love of my life.

I will make up the lost reading time on our month-long(!!) honeymoon in May.

Books I read in April:

  1. Turn of Mind, by Alice LaPlante
    Hmm… very interesting concept, but ultimately it fell short.
  2. Finvarra’s Circus, by Monica Sanz
    Nothing is ever as good as The Night Circus. Also, either I was really tired while I read this, or the author made connections in her own head that didn’t end up properly on the page.
  3. The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories, by Marina Keegan
    I’ve read this before, and forgot about it. I should have taken that as a sign and not bothered to read it again.
  4. Tiny Beautiful Things, by Cheryl Strayed
    “Let yourself be gutted. Let it open you. Start there.”
  5. Every Note Played, by Lisa Genova
    Well, it wasn’t Still Alice. The main characters were both pretty unlikeable, and by the end, it started to drag (until the very end, when I bawled my eyes out). Still, it was a fascinating and heartbreaking look at ALS.

YTD books read: 31
Goal: 100. We’re doing it.
Books to go: 69. Here’s to making up the miles in May!
