D.E.A.R. – April 2013

5266982960 275572c3ca m pictureDo you remember D.E.A.R? At my elementary school that meant “Drop Everything And Read,” something we typically did for 10 or 15 minutes every day. Best part of my day, really. As my TBR and Library piles are battling for supremacy and trying to sneak in around the review copies who have staked out places on my calendar, I’m thinking back to the simpler days of D.E.A.R., when I believed I had time to get to any book I wanted. And that, of course, got me fantasizing about a world where I really could just Drop Everything And Read for more than just 15 minutes a day.

Damn you, April! *shakes fist* Why do you have so many fascinating books and no time for me to read them? Seriously, there are ALL THE THINGS that came out in April that  I want to read still, and here I am moving on to June books for Bloggers Recommend. I have SO many April books languishing on the shelves, in fact, that this month I am going to forgo the descriptions and just give you pretty pictures and titles (links go to Indiebound, where you can find descriptions).

  • There were way too many interesting sounding books that came out in April/ I think I will definitely make time for The Golem and the Jinni next month though

  • I think I’d grab The Interestings and perhaps a debut novel coming out called Dear Lucy. Cheers.

  • April has been nuts hasn’t it?? I’ve read The Interestings (AWESOME!) and Orphan Train. I’d really like to get to A Nearly Perfect Copy as well. SO MANY BOOKS!!!
