April reading recap

Another month is in the books, so I guess it's time for me to take a look at what I read in April.

Considering I spend a good chunk of time on a plane at the beginning of the month when I took my trip out to San Francisco, I thought I would have managed to read more. But I didn't. I actually only finished two books in April and a total of 803 pages. That brings the total for the year to 10 books and 4,126 pages. Compared to 2009, when I had finished 8 books and 3,298 pages by the end of April. A bit of an improvement I guess.

So what'd I read? Take a look:

Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

They were OK. Belong to Me was the follow up to Love Walked In. It picks up on Cornelia's a few years after the first book left off. Pretty decent read. This is what I spent most of my time reading as I flew across the country. Her Fearful Symmetry was one that I picked up from the Lucky Day shelf at the library on a whim. The cover caught my eye and it's the same author who wrote The Time Traveler's Wife, which I liked better.

I read HFS also... it was definitely interesting. I also enjoyed TTW more.

If I remember correctly, I like Love Walked In better than Belong to Me...but I could be getting them backwards. Glad you had some good books to read in April.

I'm with you on HFS. I liked it, but just not quite as much. And I didn't really like the end. I wanted something better for Robert.
