    Here’s what I read in April. April Books

    One of my favorites was The Birth Order Book by Dr. Kevin Leman. Very interesting, informative, and gives good explanations for why some people do the things they do.

    Last night I finished a biography of Charlotte Brontë by Elizabeth Gaskell. It was very good, but kind of sad in some places. I really felt like I could identify with Charlotte personally. I listened to the North and South soundtrack while I read it.

    Up next is another non-ficton book called The South Was Right by James and Walter Kennedy.

    I read 10 audio books in May. I am beginning to be a solely auditory reader. All of my reviews are on Goodreads–https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/17919854?shelf=april-2015–Link to my April reading shelf.
    Books Read–The Healing Quilt, By Wanda Brunstetter–Book 3 in the Half-Stitched series; The Rose of Winslow Street, by Elizabeth Camden–stand alone–wish it were a series; Fancy Pants, by Cathy Hake–book 1 in the Gooding, Texas series (re-read-now on to the re-reading the other books.); Coming to America series (3 books), by Robin Lee Hatcher; Patch of Heaven series (3 books), by Kelly Long; and Real Murders, by Charlaine Harris–reading the series, because I loved the Hallmark movie.

    Currently Reading–The Huntress of Thornbeck Forrest, by Melanie Dickerson; To Everything a Season, by Lauraine Snelling–can’t resist returning to Blessing, ND; and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis–challenging myself to finally get through the entire series.

    To Be Read–Justified, by Varina Denman.
