SUYB - April

May 14, 2019

Last week while trying to kill time at work I got nervous that I missed today's linkup. I calmed down when I realized I still had a week to get my shit together.

As I was looking at all the books I read in April the first thought I had was: 

I only read 6 books?

It's still a decent amount but I feel like I didn't read a lot. Here's what I read.

The Silent PatientThe Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
5 stars

A perfect debut book!

The story started off slow for me, but the chapters were relatively short and I almost immediately had a deep need to know why Alicia wouldn’t speak.

The build up and story building was excellent. I never suspected it would end as it did.

Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse  (Cape Bay Cafe Mystery, #1)Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin
2 stars {Library audiobok}

I listened to this to pass the time during a quick road trip. It's good for an "in-between" read.

It was entertaining enough as I wanted to know whodunit. The reading was tolerable and the overall story wasn't sappy or completely unrealistic.

The Best of Us (Sullivan's Crossing, #4)The Best of Us by Robyn Carr
3 stars {Netgalley}

This started off a bit slow but I enjoyed it overall. It was less sappy romance than I was expecting, and that was a good thing. I ended up doing a lot of highlighting of quotes that preceded each chapter.

Crashing the A-ListCrashing the A-List by Summer Heacock

This was predictable but I liked it.

Clara is a down-on-her-luck editor who finds herself cleaning out storage units for some quick cash. In the midst of a wine-induced weakness she makes a phone call that irrevocably changes her life. In a series of predictable, yet nonetheless entertaining events, she opens herself up to vulnerability... and love.

Husband MaterialHusband Material by Emily Belden

This was a cute story about a young widow who hasn’t figured out how to move forward. When something unexpected finds itself back in her life she’s forced to reexamine everything, and everyone, she thought she knew.

This was.... ok. It took 150 pages before I finally thought “yeah, I guess I’ll finish this”.

I found Sarah to be the most annoying character. So needy, so stalkerish. But on page 150 I thought “well, there might finally be something to this”.

The book was incredibly slow to me. I understand it now that I’m finished but I felt there was so much unnecessary description that I found myself skimming and skipping over entire blocks that weren’t dialogue.

It’s not bad, it just felt like a chore to finish.
