What I’ve Read – April 2023

April has flown by. I had thought that I hadn’t read much during April, but when I saw the titles, there were quite a few books on the list.

Most of the books were audiobooks. I did quite a bit of driving!

Here is my list:

  • The Royal Correspondent by Alexandra Joel – an audiobook that was an interesting adventure looking at women in the media and life in the 1960s.
  • Exit Through the Gift Shop by Maryam Master – I have been wanting to read this one since it was featured in last years Forevability awards. It was an interesting middle grade story that covers quite a few issues including bullying and death. I listened to the audiobook.
  • Fairest by Marissa Meyer – another audiobook. A few years ago, I read The Lunar Chronicles and loved it. This is a story about Lavana, one of the characters and showed the origin on of some of the other characters. It was fun being back in that world again.
  • My Very Punny Dad by Ryan Milligan – a picture book that I shared with my nephews as an ebook. It was a lot of fun.
  • Mim and the Disasterous Dog Show by Katrina Nannestad – an audiobook. I head the first two of the Travelling Bookshop books last year and really enjoyed them. This one was just as magical.
  • Piano Fingers by Caroline Magerl – a picture book and one I have been wanting to read for some time. It was gorgeous.
  • Bowerbird Blues by Aura Parker – a picture book with stunning illutrations.
  • Til Daph Do Us Part by Phillipa Nefri Clark – a cosy murder mystery. I’ve been following the author for a while and this is the first of her books I’ve read. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more.

This brings my total to 35 books on GoodReads.

I am currently listening to Waking Romeo by Kathryn Barker and trying to decide my next book to read.

What did you read during April? I hope you read some good books.
