I didn't do a ton of reading in April, but I did manage six books:




  • What Jane Austen ate and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool
  • A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
  • The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
  • Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
  • The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly
  • One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson


The Great Zoo of China was AWFUL. In the first place, the idea was an out-and-out rip off of Jurassic Park, except that Crichton's book had dinosaurs and Reilly's mess of words had dragons, which, it turns out, are actually a type of dinosaur that hibernates for millions of years. To add to the indignity of this book, whereas Crichton told a tense, taut tale which kept readers guessing from page to page, Reilly's editors should never have let his slipshod and unskilled writing anywhere near a printer. It was a disgrace of a book.

If anyone wants more info about any of the other books I've read, please feel free to ask.
