April 2015 Wrap-Up

Hello dear Readers,

This is my April 2015 Wrap-Up.

I read a total of four physical books, one Audio book and one e-book.

Overall, it was a great reading month. I have to say, the best book I read during April was I will Always Write Back by Martin Ganda & Caitlin Alifirenka with Liz Welch. I saw it while watching one of the book tubers I like. The cover caught my attention. I went to Goodreads to look for it, read the description and I knew inmediately I needed to read it.I did it and is one of the best book I have read this 2015. I posted my review here on the blog.

During this month, I revisited Nicholas Sparks. One day during April, I just felt the urge to read another one of his books. I decided I wanted to read The Best of Me. I saw the movie last year and I loved it. I liked the book but I wish the ending would have been different. I did not hate it, it just was too sad for my taste.

Farmer Boy, the third novel on the Little House on the Prairie The First Five Novels Collection by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Like I said before, I am a huge fan on LHOTP. I loved this novel, in specific because it talks about the story of Almanzo and his family. It was interesting to see how everything started for him.  

Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver. My review is posted on the blog. Another Psychological Thriller that I enjoyed a lot.

Yes Please by Amy Poelher (Audiobook). Brilliant and funny. I love the fact she is the one narrating the book, with some special guests who did a fantastic job as well. The things I like about the book, the honesty with she tells her story, it feels real and authentic. It is funny and the same time interesting to listen her thoughts on writing and her experience writing her book. How she talks about being a worker mom and a stay home mom and the sweetness she shows when talking about her son. Definitely, I must read and for a better experience, listen to the Audiobook. 

Finally, The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand. I had really high expectations about this book but at the end, it was not what I thought and felt I could not connect with the characters and the story. More on this book, the review is up here on my blog on a previous post.
