Read in April 2022

My Friend Anna – Rachel DeLoache Williams

Well, after reading this I’m definitely recommending that you NOT watch Inventing Anna on Netflix.

The Hawthorne Legacy – Jennifer Lynn Barnes

The second book in the Inheritance Games series.

Last Night at the Telegraph Club – Malinda Lo

I loved this one about a teenager living in Chinatown in 1954. Its focus is on the coming of age of a Chinese-American lesbian.

Klara and the Sun – Kazuo Ishiguro

A very disappointing read.

Chef Yasmina and the Potato Panic – Wauter Manner

A fun comic about a young chef and a strange snack problem.

Falling Short – Ernesto Cisneros

A middle-grade novel about fitting in and basketball.

The Love Con – Seressia Glass

A cosplay reality TV show!

The Maid – Nita Prose

I listened to this one. But I didn’t really like the main character.

The Cartographers – Peng Shepherd

I was quite fascinated by this one. It has to do with maps and places hidden in maps. But the characters… I felt little for them.

Intimacies – Katie Kitamura

An audiobook that worked well for me. Fiction audiobooks are never really my thing as I can get distracted easily. But this story set in The Hague with an interpreter as the main character held onto me.

Hide and Geek – T.P. Jagger

A cute middle-grade novel about a group of geeks helping to save their town by solving puzzles.

Sea of Tranquility – Emily St John Mandel

Read my almost-review here.

Ballgowns & Butterflies – Kelley Armstrong

A novella of the Stitch in Time series. Don’t start with this one, start with A Stitch in Time.

Portrait of a Thief – Grace D Li

A kind of Ocean’s 11 but with art that was stolen from China by western countries. I really wanted to like but the characters were a bit bland.
