April showers bring a ton of reading apparently! I fortunately had spring break this month and I read 7 books during my time off, nearly 1 book a day. It felt so good to be in this reading groove, & makes me even more excited for summer reading time!
I read 14 books this month. My absolute favorites were Lease on Love (don’t sleep on the hype, read this one ASAP), Tokyo Dreaming by Emiko Jean (if you are a Princess Diaries fan, you need this series), Sadie on a Plate (best foodie book meets romance I’ve read), and The 57 Bus by Danika Slate – this is a nonfiction book about two teens in Oakland, California, & I highly recommend going into this one without knowing much.
I also really enjoyed The Suite Spot (Trish Doller’s Beck Sister series is adorable), One of Us is Dead (elite town murder mystery/drama), Commencement ( a little dated, but loved the college set friendship story), and Funny You Should Ask (so well-written & its the Bad on Paper Podcast Book Club pick for May!). I definitely felt pretty meh about Project Hail Mary – I read this one for Bad on Paper’s April book club and it was way too science-y for me.
