What I Read April 2017

I had a pretty good reading month.  Work does pick up this time of year but I continue to stay on track and enjoy my reading time.  My husband and I are still reading one book a month together and that has been fun!  

I participated in Erin's 6.0 Challenge from January to April reading 10 books that fit into specific categories.  It was fun and I look forward to the next challenge.  



1.  What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast:  by Laura Vanderkam - 3 stars.  
      (Library-Overdrive)

2.  Grandma Gatewood's Walk:  The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian
     Trail by Ben Montgomery - 4 stars.  (Library-Overdrive)
   
3.  Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - 4.5 stars.  This was the book my husband and I
     picked to read together this month.  (Own-Hardcover)

4.  Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur - 3 stars.  This was a short book of poetry. (Library-Overdrive)

5.  One Plus One by Jo Jo Moyes - 3.5 stars. (Own-Paperback)

6.  I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou 3.5 stars.  (Library-Overdrive)

7.  Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty by Ramona Ausubel 3 stars.  (Library-Overdrive)

8.  To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 4.5 stars.  (Library-Overdrive)

9.  It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover - 3.5 stars.  (Library-Paperback)

    I must know - what is it that most successful people do before breakfast?

  2. Laura Vanderkam is probably my favorite self-helpish type person. 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think has been my favorite of hers.

    One Plus One is my favorite (clearly you have lots of my favorites on this list) Jojo Moyes book.

    1. I am going to reserve 168 Hours. I liked One Plus One but it took me a little bit to get into it.

  3. I loved One Plus One and To Kill a Mockingbird will also be one of all my all-time favorite books. Station Eleven is on my TBR but I've seen some mixed reviews. Those that disliked it, really disliked, so I've been on the fence about it.

  4. I'll have to check out Station 11. I've listened to Laura Vanderkam on some podcasts but her book sounds interesting.
