Update ~ When I posted this earlier, I was in a hurry and didn't even take the time to tell my blog readers what I thought of the books I read in April.  Now, that I've had time to slow down I want to say that every book from last month was fabulous, not one book that I had to slog thru.  Some of my favorite authors Hunter, Grisham, Olmstead and Vince Flynn, turned in great reads, as usual.

I have to add a "new" Flynn to my favorites, Gillian Flynn.  Her thriller Girl Gone was hard to put down.  Bob and I have different taste in books, but I keep telling him what was happening, and he really couldn't wait for the next "report".

A Chance In The World, is one of the most touching/uplifting memoirs I've read in a long time.  Talk about taking lemons and making lemonade.

The Orphanmaster is a historical mystery that takes place in the 1600's in NYC.  Zimmerman's research for writing this novel was great.  I felt very involved with the story, and I even recognized some of the streets.  They're still there in lower Manhattan.
