April Wrap-Up

Books and baby

In April I read: 4 books: One e-book (‘The Post-birthday World’), two audio books (The Bell Jar and ‘North and South’), and one physical book (‘Mariana’).

Best read: That would be Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. But it was a reread so it doesn’t really count. So the best read will be ‘Mariana’ by Monica Dickens. which proved to be an adorable little surprise.

Most disappointing read: ‘The Post-birthday World’ – a good idea poorly conducted.

Longest book ‘North and South’ (531 pages / 20 hrs 8 mins)

Books bought: Zero – I’d rather spend my limited me-time reading than buying books.

Reading challenge status: I’m 9 books ahead of schedule! Those long walks with the pram are brilliant πŸ˜€

  1. I really enjoy your wrap-ups, especially seeing Edith Olenska growing each month. She is a pearl.
    I havenΒ΄t thought of doing monthly wrap-ups, but it does make sense to wrap it all up, and in your case with a spot on photo. Your books for April looks good too.

    1. Oh, you should definitely do it, Anja – it’s a lot of fun looking back, summing up, thinking about what you’ve read.

  2. Was Juliet Stevenson the narrator of North and South? I listened to that one, and I liked it (I would listen to Juliet Stevenson read the dictionary), but I feel like Gaskell doesn’t quite have Jane Austen’s sense of humor, and I missed that.

    1. No, it was narrated by Charlton Griffin – but I’ll have to check Juliet Stevenson out! And I agree with you on Gaskell!

  3. Hvad syntes du om nord og syd? Jeg lΓ¦ste bΓΈgerne dengang i midt 90’erne da vi gik i 8.-9. Klasse og et par Γ₯r inden havde svΓ¦lget i serien. Jeg husker dem som ok, men ikke nogen jeg siden har fΓΈlt trang til at lΓ¦se igen.

    1. Den var OK. Men er det ikke John Jakes serie du mener? Den jeg har læst er af Elisabeth Gaskell, og der er kun én bog.
