Reading in April

A picture of books to read this April


Well, April is already flying by, isn't it? This month's 'Reading in' post is a little later than planned, but it's time to share the books on my reading list for April (one which I've even finished already!). If you've read any of these, I'd love to hear your thoughts on them as always! If you want to catch up on the books I read last month you can check out my full reviews in my recent post 'Finished Reading | March 2015'.

The Rosie Project 
by Graeme Simsion, paperback £3.85, Kindle £3.66
This is the book I've already finished, but I'll save a full review until the end of the month when I recap the books I've read this April. The Rosie Project follows Don Tillman, a 39 year old geneticist who has always been unlucky in love, never getting passed the first date. He devises 'The Wife Project', a scientific approach to finding the perfect partner, but then Rosie comes into his life. Don sees Rosie as 'the world's most incompatible woman', and she throws Don's life into chaos.

I heard some really mixed reviews of The Rosie Project before I decided to give it a read for myself, and I'm really glad I did. Keep an eye out for my full review at the end of the month!

Zodiac: The Shocking True Story of America's Most Elusive Serial Killer 
by Robert Graysmith, paperback £6.99
I'm a big true crime fan, but it's been a long time since I read any true crime books, mainly because I kept going for books on serial killers I already knew a lot about, so my fascination waned for a while. Zodiac is a good one to get me back into the habit of reading true crime again, as it's a case/serial killer I know relatively little about. The Zodiac was active during the 1960's/70's and has still to this day never been caught - the San Francisco Police Department have also officially closed the case after decades long search to identify the Zodiac. This is the book I'm currently reading, and as true crime goes, this has so far been a really interesting read.

Damsel in Distress 
by Carola Dunn, paperback £5.99, Kindle £4.27
Every month I've made sure to make progress on the Daisy Dalrymple murder mystery series by Carola Dunn, so this April book #5 is on my reading list; Damsel in Distress. This one follows Daisy as her friend Phillip Petrie finds himself smitten with the daughter of a millionaire Yank, Miss Gloria Arbuckle - whose kidnapped and held at ransom before Philip has the chance to profess his love and propose. From the cover there doesn't seem to be a murder in this one, but you never know! I'm looking forward to getting stuck into book #5 regardless.

The Enchantment Emporium 
by Tanya Huff, paperback £7.99, Kindle £3.83
After abandoning my Kindle for the whole of March, I'm more than ready to get stuck into one of my new books on there this month. The Enchantment Emporium is a book I actually managed to snap up super cheap when it was on offer on the Kindle store - my favourite way to buy Kindle books! I'm new to Tanya Huff as an author, but the description really caught my eye. Following the story of Alysha Gale, a 24 year old whose unemployed and fed up of her family meddling both personally and magically, who inherits a junk shop from a missing grandmother. When she gets to the Enchantment Emporium, all manner of magical things are awry. This is the first book in a trilogy, and if I enjoy it I will be picking it up in paperback along with the other books in the trilogy!

So a fairly realistic of four books on my reading list this April. What books do you plan on reading this month? Don't forget you can keep up with the books I'm currently reading, as well as how I'm doing on my personal Goodreads Reading Challenge to read 50 books in 2015, by adding me as a friend on Goodreads.

All books available at www.amazon.co.uk.

  1. I kept picking up The Rosie Project in my local library but never taking it out. Then The Rosie Effect gets released, and can I get my hands on the Project?? No! So annoying, waiting for the hype to die down a little then I'll be reading both. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it though! x

  7. I managed to get my hands on a pre-release copy of The Rosie Project, and I absolutely LOVED it. My eldest daughter has Aspergers, and I could see so much of her in Don. I wasn't as keen on The Rosie Effect, but I had quite a big gap between reading The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect coming out, so you may find it flows better if you read them with a shorter space in between. I'm not saying it was bad though, just not quite as good as The Rosie Project :)
