April Reading Recap

Oh April, you were good to me & my reading time! Despite being busy with work, I was able to read & read & read to my hearts content. I got into the books I was reading & was a total goner. I ended up reading one of the books in one day (whoops). I also decided to take a trip to the local library & left with 3 books, I needed some fun reads back in my life. But this last month, I ended up finally reading over my minimum of 4 books a month (finally) & ended up reading a total of 5 books! I’m playing catch up now but it looks like i’m back!

So with April coming to an end, here is my April Reading Recap & current TBR list!

2019 Reading Challenge
–  13/50

Currently Reading:
I’ll be starting one of the library books I picked up, just have to decide which one!

Completed in April:

  • Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy by Helen Fielding
  • Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
  • Bridget Jones Baby by Helen Fielding
  • Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
  • The Vacationers by Emma Straub

My Thoughts:

  • Bridget Jones: Mad about the boy: What a book! I mean, you all know I love my ‘Bridget Jones’ but I haven’t actually gotten this far in the books, so I wasn’t expecting it to be this way (totally different than the movie, by the way), but I loved it & well, Bridget should be Queen.
  • Girl, Wash Your Face: This book was fantastic! I loved how Rachel Hollis wasn’t like ‘do this’ or ‘do that’, it was her story & how she’s dealt with something. It was a totally different kind of book & I loved every second of it!
  • Bridget Jones Baby: The last of the Bridget Jones Series. & damn it, I don’t want it to end! It was so strange finally reading this book, I mean so different than the movie (but obviously so much better)! I loved this book so much I read through it in one day, one day…. Thank goodness for Easter Monday being a holiday for me!
  • Born to Run: Honestly this book I think was a gift to my dad by a client & has been on our shelf for a while, so I figured I should read it! It was totally not what I expected & was super interesting. I mean who knew there was this tribe in Mexico that was like super human runners & lived off the land still. Christoper went above & beyond in his research & it showed! If you are interested in running or are a runner, I would highly, highly recommend reading this book!
  • The Vacationers: This book was honestly what I needed. It was one of the three books I borrowed from the library. It was an easy read & there was so much family drama between the pages.
