Read in April 2013

Wow, April seems like a whole lifetime ago… I guess that’s what happens with a newborn in the house. Apparently I managed to do quite a bit of reading in April. And there were some truly awesome reads, like Carol Shields’ The Republic of Love and DWJ’s Dark Lord of Derkholm, as well as finishing Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy (intense, but so good). I read a few crime/mystery books as well – Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs series just gets better, Agatha Christie is always fun to dip into (more please!), but I’m in two minds about the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series.

Oh and also, Angela Carter! Why have I only now read her books? Which other book of hers would you recommend?
