Here is what I read in April:
14. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - I don't normally read fantasy (although the cover says this is a novel) but a friend recommended it so I decided to give it a read. The title is very straight forward - this book is about a very unusal circus that is open only at night and the people who run it (and no, they are not vampires as one friend asked). Of course there is an underlying mystery throughout the book so you'll need some patiences but it was enjoyable just the same.
15. Miss Darcy Falls in Love by Sharon Lathan - This is another continuation of Pride & Prejudice but you don't need to know the original story. I always find it interesting how other authors tell what happen to the characters onces P&P is over and this one tells how Georginia Darcy falls in love. It was okay and kept to the speech and manors of the time but it did get a little too Harlequin-y for me, especially at the end.
16. The Lost Years by Mary Higgins Clark - I don't read a lot of mysteries but I've been reading MHC since I was about 12. She has written over 40 books and I've probably read most of them. She seems to have a formula that she follows in her writing (all the books are written the same way and are somewhat dated) but I always end up reading whatever she puts out. Most of her books involve a murder. The man murdered in this story may have found a letter written by Christ. This was easy to read and enjoyable. If you like "who-dunnits" then you would probably enjoy this book.
I feels as if I've been slacking this year. Only 16 books in the first four months. There just doesn't seem to be as much time to read as their used to be. I'm not really sure what has changed. I don't think I need more hours in the day, I'd rather just spend less time on things that aren't as enjoyable, like work.
