the best books i read this month – april 2019

This month I found myself reading on the bus again (after it being too dark all winter), getting books I have been waiting for for months showing up at the library for me, and some wonderful advanced books.

I am going to switch things up a bit this month and share even more books, but with shorter summaries and an indication of who might enjoy these books. I hope you enjoy this little bit of a switch up and find something to add to your to-read list.
