April Book Recap

April was not as productive of a reading month as March, but I did make it through a couple books and managed not to add too many new books though as well.

What I Read:
Traveling Light by Max Lucado This book is a nonfiction commentary of sorts about the 23 Psalm.  It was interesting, but not my favorite book by Lucado.  Some of the humor was cheesy and it seemed obvious in some parts.  I thought Cure for the Common Life was much more thought provoking.
The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz  Great for any Sherlock Holmes mystery lover.  The book was actually authorized by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate.  It has a similar tone to Doyle's books and of course features Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.  It does have a darker feel to it than I remember Doyle's books having though.  But, a good mystery all the same.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (Not pictured because I had passed it on to my Books N Blogger swap partner after finishing it.)  I really enjoyed this one, but don't expect a warm and cozy ending.  I think the characters were drawn with a realness that made their decisions believable even if you didn't agree with some of their decisions.  None of the characters were good or bad, but just flawed.  I really liked it, even if I did cry through a lot of it.

What I Acquired:
The only new books I added were ones my swap partner, Stephanie from Wife, Mommy, Me sent me during the Books and Bloggers swap.
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Sarah's Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
You can read more about them in Books N Bloggers reveal post.
