Books - April 2018

You could not even believe right now how much I'm looking forward to summer, and more time to read! Working with the schools has been great for me this year, but as it's occurred to me that I don't work when the kids don't go to school, I've been hustling and working lots of extra hours while I can.

In April, I only finished two books! Here they are.

The first book I read in April was Guilt by Amanda Robson. It's a great story of two sisters and the man who turns them against each other. I reviewed this one for Books I Think You Should Read.

In short, I think this would make an intriguing beach read. It was a bit confusing toward the beginning, so it wouldn't give away the end. This helped make it a page-turner for me - I wanted to find out what had really happened!

The other book I read in April was one of the best books I've read in a while! A Blood Thing by James Hankins is scheduled to be published June 5, 2018, and you should get it. The governor of Vermont (and his family) are being blackmailed by someone framing their disabled brother for a terrible crime. The plan is so intricate, I never saw most of it coming.

Check out my full review for this one on Books I Think You Should Read. She's also having a giveaway (ends May 24, 2018).

Summer is coming - what do you recommend as a great read? Or what would you like me to check out for you? I'm all ears. :)
