It seems a little motivation goes a long way as the last few months have proved that if I publicly decide which books I'm going to get through in the month ahead then I seem to actually be able to convince myself to read - so without further ado, here's April's list.
1: The Lie - C.L Taylor
I lent this book to my mum to go on holiday two trips ago and after her last trip she brought it back and convinced me she'd bought it and I needed to read it. I'm excited, it sounds very confusing and it's been lying in my collection for a long while, but it was definitely mine and not my mum's. I'm just saying, Ka, if you're reading this.
2: Severed Heads, Broken Hearts - Robyn Schnieder
Honestly I think I stole this off Katy when we were first going out which means that it's been sitting around gathering dust for near on a year. I couldn't tell you off the top of my head what this is actually about but the front of the book looks like a John Green novel and I'm all in for that. Katy said it's good, so we'll see (she also thinks that gravy is good so, not all of her opinions are the best).
3: The Lake Of Dreams - Kim Edwards
When I was younger we went on holiday and everyone we met along the way (including myself, my mum and my auntie) seemed to be reading The Memory Keeper's Daughter which was Kim Edwards' first novel. I remember it kept me captivated all the way through and was really beautifully written and so I have to admit that I'm really excited to give another of her offerings a go.
4: Dear Amy - Helen Callaghan
Penguin actually sent me this to review and it's about a kidnapping - you all know I love a good mystery/thriller. I'm really looking forward to giving this a good go and it's probably one of the only books in my collection that hasn't been sitting around waiting for me to read it for months on end. I really need to get on top of my to-read shelf.
