April Wrap-Up

Happy spring! April flew by — lots of travel and lots of work. Despite all the busyness, I still managed to read 5 books! I read two books of poetry, two pieces of nonfiction, and a contemporary fiction I’ve been meaning to get my hands on.

Here’s what I read in April:

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson

I read this one for book club and it was okay. Some parts were funny, and the other parts were just overkill. Some parts were really vulnerable and real, which I appreciated. I don’t plan on reading anything else by her.

Maame by Jessica George

I wanted a little more out of this one. I enjoyed the premise but felt like the execution wasn’t there. It read like a first draft that needed some polishing. The narrator was not my favorite (she was pretty boring), and her narration/prose was very flat.

Find Your Unicorn Space: Reclaim Your Creative Life in a Too-Busy World by Eve Rodsky

This book was recommended by a friend and it was just what I needed to get stoked about my writing and creating my own unicorn space. Stay tuned 🙂

Blue Horses: Poems by Mary Oliver

I just love Mary Oliver. Her poems are as easy as breathing. They are inspiring and warm and comfortable and nostalgic. She was truly a gift.

Please Love Me at My Worst (Poems) by Michaela Angemeer

I picked up this book of Poetry at Powell’s Books in Portland and flipped to a poem that got me hooked. Michaela taught me that my poetry is poetry. That even the simplest of verses can make the most impact on your heart. I love that about her poetry.
