Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear
I read this title for a library adult reading challenge. I needed a mystery title and struggled finding something in that category. Unfortunately, it didn't end up being much of a mystery and wasn't a story I was excited to keep reading. However, I did appreciate the strong female character! I finished it, despite not loving Maisie Dobbs.
Brave Enough Cheryl Strayed
This is a compilation of quotes and so many of the messages resonated with me right now. I like Strayed's style and figured I would enjoy this book. It's a quick read & if you're looking for some inspirational quotes, this should do the trick.
I don't read a lot of fiction, but when I need something light and not so serious, I turn to Sarah Jio. I really enjoyed this book and maybe it's because the main character was so much like me, especially in the beginning of the story. I felt like Sarah had been following me or something. The story was pretty predictable, but I still liked it. I'd recommend any of Jio's titles if you're looking for a more light read.
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
This book keeps showing up everywhere, so I am sure you have seen the cover or heard about Paul's story. I knew this one was going to be a tearjerker and it was, especially at the end. I truly appreciate my life, struggles and all, but I really did after reading this true story. I love learning more about the medical field and it also fulfilled that nerdy side of me. Kate from A Small Things Blog actually wrote a wonderful review of it last week and I thought I'd simply share her link here instead of trying to sum up my thoughts.
Hope I can get through this many books in April! I'm not off to a great start this month though and am looking for recommendations.
