books I read this month

What I Read in April

The Old Woman with the Knife by Gu Byeong-mo with Chi-Young Kim (good, a little slow maybe?)

The Long Weekend by Gilly Macmillan (disappointing)

How to Find Your Way Home by Katy Regan (a little slow, not sure how this ended up in my queue but basically liked it)

How We Fell Apart by Katie Zhao (felt unfinished)

Ancestor Trouble: A Reckoning and a Reconciliation by Maud Newton (a lot of research. Her family was awful and her responses to them was frustrating)

The Heights by Louise Candlish (fun)

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus (cute and quirky)

Very Bad People by Kit Frick (very abrupt ending)

Happy People Are Annoying by Josh Peck (did talk honestly about money)

Bomb Shelter by Mary Laura Philpott (always enjoy her)

Notes from a Young Black Chef by Kwame Onwuachi with Joshua David Stein (something felt off to me)

Olive by Emma Gannon (the rare book where a woman decides she doesn’t want to be a mother)

The No-Show by Beth O’Leary (not good)

Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez (not great!)

Every Last Fear by Alex Finlay (lots of fatphobia)

Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li (great idea but the character “voices” were too similar despite having very different personalities and backgrounds which made it hard to keep details straight)

Deaf Utopia: A Memoir—and a Love Letter to a Way of Life by Nyle DiMarco with Bobby Siebert (interesting, less interested in the reality show part)

Blood Sugar by Sascha Rothchild (a lot of fun)

The Blame Game by Sandie Jones (very bad)

Regretting Motherhood: A Study by Orna Donath (I wish it was a wider study)

I Am Not Okay With This by Charles Forsman (horrible, the show is 1000x better)

Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance Alison Espach (well done)

Hello, Molly! by Molly Shannon (very good and interesting)
