The Picky Bookworm

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." –Stephen King

It’s the end of April, so that means I get to talk about my favorite books of the month!

Sadly, my job has gotten busier this month, so I haven’t had time to read as much as I would love to. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t get anything done. Here are the books I’ve read this month. I’ll be sure to highlight my favorites!

The Sleepover

“Mama Bear” turned amateur detective in this thriller from Samantha King. When Izzy’s son disappears from a sleepover, Izzy worries that something terrible has happened to her precious little boy. This starts Izzy on a journey with the police and her ex-husband to find her son before things get completely out of hand. Provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I did like this book, even if I found the characters a little one-dimensional.

Lead Like a Woman

Self-help like nothing I’ve read before. Deborah Smith Pegues takes our natural abilities as women and explains how they can work for us in fields typically dominated by men. Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I LOVED THIS BOOK!

Inconvenient Daughter

Coming-of-Age story about an adoptee from Korea. Rowan doesn’t know where she fits, and feels abandoned by her birth mother, as she comes to terms with her adopted mom’s love for her and her love for herself. Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. While I loved Rowan the character, I didn’t particularly love the book itself. I’m hoping the author writes another book about the Rowan character, because I think she was very well-written.

 

Sadly, I’ve started more books than I’ve finished, so goals for May! All three of these books were NetGalley reads, so you can find my reviews here on my blog! Just click the title, and you can read my reviews of these books!

Let me know in the comments any books you’ve read this month you think I might like! I’ll be glad to add to my ever-growing TBR Pile! Until next time, bookworms!
