Book Haul ~ April

There were a lot of really good sales this month. I think I say that every month. I got several Kindle books for cheap, and my library had a small sale in their lobby. That was fun. Here are the books I bought recently.

I'm planning to read the Lisa Wingate series this summer while I'm on vacation. I started collecting physical copies of Susan Meissner's books recently, and I actually have a couple more on the way to me. And I'm getting several more books through Paperbackswap soon. I may have to do another haul.

 I'm linking up with The Deliberate Reader for New on the Stack and Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves.

Quick Lit ~ April

Here are some of the books I have been reading lately, and what I thought about them.

Station Eleven
I ended up enjoying this one. The story really picked up about halfway through. It can be bleak at times, because of the subject matter, but the story was interesting. 

Annabel Lee (Coffey & Hill #1)
This was an enjoyable thriller. I liked all the Edgar Allen Poe references. The end was a little odd, and kind of creepy, but the rest of the story made up for it. 

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder (Herringford and Watts, #1)
This was a fun, light-hearted, mystery set in 1910 Toronto. I'll definitely be picking up the next book when it comes out.

I missed Waiting on Wednesday last week, so this week I have a two for one.

Broken Ground

Release Date: May 3, 2016

Lead Me Home

Release Date: May 3, 2016

I haven't read the other books by these authors, but these look really good. I have been needing a little literary fiction in my life, and I think these will fit the bill.
