The Best of April

Here are the books that gave me solace during the hectic month that was April.

Queen of the Night

The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee. ( A grand sweeping epic of love, betrayal, resilience, and music. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. )

Bonsai

Bonsai by Alejandro Zambra  (If you love literature, this short little book is everything)

Ruby

Ruby by Cynthia Bond  (Magical Realism anyone? Beautiful yes, but not for the faint hearted)

MArch

March (Book One) by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell (Finished this in one sitting. I was engrossed the entire time)

Me, You

Me, You by Erri De Luca (A quite read that transports you to the beautiful  and simple Italian island life)

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho (Bad ass women and magic make a beautiful combination)

Lastly,

SInf

Signs Preceding The End of The World by Yuri Herrera ( An odyssey  with a twist. Also, kudos to the translator)

And that was the best of my reading month. Let’s hope May is just as good!

What were the best books you read this month?
