Leslie | 15985 comments March is almost over! What books are you planning to read in April? Share your plans (or lack of them!) with us here.

Leslie | 15985 comments I will continue on my reading of Infinite Jest & of course, finish up whatever I am still reading at the end of March.

I didn't get to Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family, our group classic for March & April, so that will be a priority in April.

Other books I think I will read:

White Teeth
A Town Like Alice {audiobook}
The Dragon Reborn {audiobook}
Scout's Progress
Utopia {audiobook} (maybe)

The Young Lions (maybe)

Mysteries:
The Murder at Sissingham Hall
The Singing Bone
Tragedy at Law
Too Many Women
Dog Day
The High Window (maybe)
Death in Ecstasy (maybe)

I read White Teeth and thought it was a clever book, I liked it a lot and I hope you will too.

EDIT: It's very strange how this post read about Buddenbrooks when I meant White Teeth, I don't know what happened.



message 8: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 15985 comments Oh, Laura, I have been meaning to read The Enchanted April for a while now! I should add that to my list!

Raul - I have a copy of The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Short Stories so I will look forward to hearing how you like it. It's a pretty big hardcover book!

I plan on reading some (hopefully all) of these choices:

1) Continue with A Gentleman in Moscow - I’m doing a reboot on this one! I listened to 20% on audio but wasn’t following it so I’ve started from the beginning w the ebook.

2) All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders

3) Spin by Robert Charles Wilson (library book club read)

4) Macbeth by Jo Nesbo (ARC win from Read it Forward)

Ensoleillé Rimbaud (cyprostat) | 149 comments The hearts invisible furies by John Boyne

A fine balance by rohinton mistry

Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood

The people in the trees by hanya yanagihara

In no particular order.

Keep us posted on A Little Life and what you think/your review - it's on my list, but have heard it's really sadly intense - but GOOD!

I've heard A Gentleman in Moscow is much better read, unless one is a really good audio listener, just to keep track of it all. I picked up the book. :)

Colleen  | 344 comments My list:

Finished:
The Underground Railroad (audio)

Finished:
Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI (audio)
Wolf Hall
Vintage Cocktails: Retro Recipes for the Home Mixologist

AND:
The Female Persuasion - nope, running out of time & the RL book club meets next week. There's no way, especially since I can't get on audio from the library. :(

Diana *always waiting for the next vacation* (dianaalwayswaitingforvacation) Currently reading
Bittersüsse Tode by Laurell K. Hamilton
(the German version of Guilty Pleasures)
and
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Really struggling through this one. I just don't like it.

Next on my list:
The Bronze Horseman (re-read)
and
The Life List

I guess I won't have time to read more.


message 24: by Chrissie (new)

Chrissie I have added Mark Helprin's Paris in the Present Tense to my message 3 since I just picked it up as a daily deal at Audible.

I think you have some really good titles there! Your first, fourth and sixth titles you will surely love or at least like.


message 26: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 15985 comments I did well on my list this month!


message 27: by Esther (new)

Esther (eshchory) | 1298 comments "I will finish Red Rising

I did finish Red Rising and I did read a book from my shelf though it was Pachinko, not one of the books I thought I would read.
I will proabably start The Big Four this evening once I have finished Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race. IT is a quick read and so far more interesting and less angry than I expected.
