April Reading Re-Cap & Expected May Reads

My April 2020 Reads: 

I realize I'm posting this a bit early, but I know I won't finish any more books before the end of the month so I thought I'd go ahead and share.

April brought lots of challenges into our household and I found myself gravitating toward lighter reading. Usually I'm all about deep character development and moving stories. But this month, the lighter, less probing books met my reading tastes.

In April, I finished:
  1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, annotated by Karen Swallow Prior. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  2. Daughter of Rome by Tessa Afshar - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  3. Stay with Me by Becky Wade - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  4. Emberhawk by Jamie Foley - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  5. The House at the End of the Moor by Michelle Griep - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  6. The Chisholm Trail Bride by Kathleen Y'Barbo - ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  7. Fierce, Free and Full of Fire: The Guide to Being Glorious You by Jen Hatmaker. - ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Review coming 5/12/20.

  8. The Prophet and the Dove by Kirby Lee Davis - ⭐⭐ - Review to come.
With so many five star reads, there's no way I can pick a favorite. 🤷 It was a great reading month! 🙂

Expected May 2020 Reads:

In May, I hope to read:
  1. An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz. - I've been looking forward to reading this book for months!!! It's my local book club's selection for May and we'll be chatting with the author! Can't wait! 🙂

  2. Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano. - This author is not new to the Christian fiction scene, but she is new-to-me.

  3. Ruby Moon by Jennifer Knipfer. - Both this book and it's sequel have been sitting on my shelf for months! Sometimes I get soooo behind! 🙈

  4. The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch. - A new to me author. I've already heard lots of good buzz about this novel.

  5. A Mosaic of Wings by Kimberly Duffy. - Looking forward to this one!

  6. The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall. - A group read I'm doing with some friends.

What will you read this month?
