Wow, did I ever fall behind! My 8-year-old laptop died and I didn’t have a chance to replace it until recently. I’m in Wisconsin visiting friends and family now but will be catching up on my little reviews here when I can. For now, here are the books I read in April:
- I’ll Be Gone in the Dark … Michelle McNamara
- Darkness Visible (audio) … William Styron, read by author
- In the Kingdom of Ice (audio) … Hampton Sides, read by Robert Petkoff
- Heart Berries (ebook) … Terese Marie Mailhot
- Educated (audio) … Tara Westover, read by Julia Whelan
- Being Mortal (audio) … Atul Gawande, read by Robert Petkoff
- The Lost City of the Monkey God (audio) … Douglas Preston, read by Bill Mumy
- Instant Replay (audio) … Jerry Kramer with Dick Shaap, read by John Pruden
- The Asshole Survival Guide (audio) … Robert I. Sutton, read by author
Another month of all non-fiction. My favorites were I’ll Be Gone in the Dark about the Golden State Killer, which was just made all the more fascinating since that monster was caught about a month after I finished reading this book, In the Kingdom of Ice about the U.S.S. Jeanneatte‘s doomed 1879 mission to the Arctic, and Jerry Kramer’s Instant Replay, his behind-the-scenes diary of the Green Bay Packers’ historic 1967 season.
In other bookish news for me, I’ve also fell behind on my TBR Pile Challenge, but hopefully that won’t be too hard to get back into after this Wisconsin visit. More recaps and reviews here in the coming days!
