What I read in April


The Flirt by Kathleen Tessaro: This was just a so-so read.  Easy, chick lit that is good for the summer.  It is a British author so the language can be a little harsh but story line was good.  It follows a secret group of men whose job is to flirt with women.  They have been hired by their husbands, boyfriends, etc. to boost their confidence by flirting.  It was an interesting idea and neat to see how the stories connected.  If you are looking for an easy read check it out. 

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: This book was one of the best books I have read in a long time.  It may be in my top books ever.  Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors and this might be her best yet.  It is a heartbreakingly beautiful story of two sisters and their lives in France during World War II.   It is a story about the women in the war and what they went through, events that have rarely been told. This was a book I couldn't stop reading but one I never wanted to end.  It tells of the resilience of the human sprit and the strength of a woman's courage.  This is one of those books that sticks with you long after you finish, leaving you longing to return to the pages.

Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger: Yet another basic chick book.  This one is by the author that wrote The Devil Wears Prada.  It was good but not great.  A little predictable but easy, light read.  It's about a girl who gets a new job and is suddenly pulled into the tabloid spotlight, but is it what she wants?  Cheesy yes but not bad for a quick summer read.

What have you been reading this month?
