It feels a little odd to think that it's April. Usually, around this time, we're preparing for Easter festivites, getting out of the house to soak in sunshine, and starting to go to outdoor playdates. But this April, well, things are a bit different, that's for sure.

Nonetheless, we're trying to keep on truckin' as usual, which means I have some book reviews for you!

Scroll to read my thoughts on the six books I read last month. 😁

"Silver Bay" by Jojo Moyes: I really enjoy Moyes' writing, but this one was just an "eh" for me. If I had to describe it in three words, I'd say it was slow, steady, and sweet. The story was heartwarming, but I did have to push myself through it.

Stars: 3/5

"The Hideaway" by Lauren K. Denton: I bought this on a whim with a Kindle credit. I wasn't sure how I was going to like it, and I honestly didn't...I loved it! Such a sweet story with loveable, quirky characters. I felt like I was right there, living in that charming home, and by the time I finished the book, I wished I did! If The Hideaway ever becomes a real place in Sweet Bay, Alabama, consider me there.

Stars: 5/5

"The Killing Type" by Jane Corry: I'm a huge fan of Jane Corry, and I happen to come across this short story of hers for free on Kindle. By short, I mean 50 pages, so it's obviously a very quick read. I finished it during one baby naptime, and although it was short, it packed a lot of story! I feel like it would have been a riveting full-length novel, but I enjoyed the shortened version very much.

Stars: 4/5

"The Dead Ex" by Jane Corry: See above for my thoughts on Corry. 😊 Another win for me from this author. I always enjoy the twists and turns throughout her books, and this one was no exception. I love how Corry keeps her readers questioning, and ultimately, usually being wrong in their assumptions.

Stars: 4/5

"Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens: I finally jumped on the bandwagon with this one. My husband gifted this to me on Valentine's Day, and it only took me so long to finish it because I find it harder to read hard copies of books in this season of life. It's usually easier for me to one-handedly read a book on my phone while nursing, rocking a baby, waiting for a pot of water to boil, etc. Otherwise, I think I would have powered through this book. It's out of the box, for sure, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story of the "Marsh Girl". There were a couple parts that were slow to me, but those were outweighed by the rest of the story.

Stars: 4.5/5

"Whisper Network" by Chandler Baker: Loved, loved, loved this book. A juicy read, yet one that really gets your mind churning. It's the #MeToo movement mixed with mystery mixed with what it's like to be a woman. I will definitely be reading more of Baker's work.

Stars: 5/5

"The Earl Not Taken" by A. S. Fenichel: See my full review of this historical romance novel HERE!
