Books Over TV

I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?


April Wrap-up

Jane Steele  - Lyndsay Faye The Book of Harlan - Bernice L. McFadden Glory over Everything: Beyond The Kitchen House - Kathleen Grissom The Liszts - Kyo Maclear, Julia Sarda A Will and A Way - Claudia Harbaugh Narrative of My Escape from Slavery - Thomas Price, Moses Roper

I had a solid reading month. I had one 5 star read, three 4 star reads and one 3 star read. My favorite book of the month should come as no surprise with it being The Book of Harlan. I highly recommend and wish I could supply everyone with a copy. There's just so much in this one book. It doesn't disappoint. 


I thoroughly enjoyed Jane Steele and Glory Over EverythingThese two were highly anticipated and were entertaining reads. I thought about Jane (from Jane Steele) and Jamie ( from GOE) long after I was done with their stories. 


In the 12th hour I decided to throw in some quick reads. All three were good. The Liszts pictures are so lovely and detailed. Even on my kindle I could tell they would be absolutely gorgeous in print. A Will and A Way was a quick and entertaining historical romance. And last I read the gut wrenching, hard hitting, detailed to a fault, Narrative of My Escape from Slavery. This book is in your face without pause or kindness. The bandaid is ripped of without the wound ever being healed.
