Whew! How far into April we already are. Why is this year going by so fast? Why do I bring this up every time I write a monthly book post? ... Who knows. But I'll prob do it again next month, too haha. Last month, I kind of set myself up for a stressful situation as I planned to read six whole books. Even my motives for doing that are unclear to me. As I have other things on my plate, it's very hard to keep to a schedule like that so I scheduled myself a far lighter load this month.
Here are the books I'll be reading in April...
Boy Erased by Garrard Conley ~ I came across this book on a literature-based Facebook page (maybe it was Bustle Books? Who knows) some time ago. There was a list of must-read non-fiction books that I was scrolling through and this one in particular caught my eye. It's all about a gay man reflecting on a time in his youth when he was forced into conversion therapy by his very religious parents. I fully expect that this is going to be a very difficult read, and it will most definitely break my heart, but I'm eager to read it nevertheless.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman ~ I feel like I might just be the last person on Earth to read this book. People have been just raving about it for ages now and because I'm terribly nosy, I need to hop on board and see what all the fuss is about! I'm actually quite excited about this one, as from the short blurb on Goodreads it sounds like a very interesting read!
Match Made in Manhattan by Amanda Stauffer ~ A chick-lit! A romance! Thank heavens! Goodness, how long it has been since I read something like this. As much as I like to sit with my deep, thought-provoking novels and try to pretend that I'm an ~academic~ (lol, yeah right) I do love me a good romance novel. And dammit, I deserve it! I've read some pretty dark books as of late.
And that's all for April! I quite possibly may read one of my unread Jane Austen books this month, if I have extra time laying around after I've finished these three, but we'll have to see!
