April 2013 Reads

Reason #53 is me, 100% of the time.

Nine books read in April; all good, but only one was a great read.

Apr 25 The Retribution Val McDermid
26 The Wicked Girls Alex Marwood
27 The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls Anton Disclafani
28 Benediction Kent Haruf
29 The Dinner Herman Koch
30 The Famous and the Dead T. Jefferson Parker
31 The Smart One Jennifer Close
32 Letters from Skye Jessica Brockmole
33 Fly Away Kristin Hannah

My secret is I never go very far into a book that doesn't grab me.  The one great book this month is Benediction by Kent Haruf.  Haruf isn't a prolific author, he's written five novels, all published since 1984.  All of his novels are outstanding, they all take place in the north eastern corner of Colorado.  Please take the time to read them, you won't be sorry.
