April TBR: 2017

1

Aprils TBR is going to be a short one, mainly because it is going to be a very busy month and I do not want to overwhelm myself. But, the four books I have picked I am very much looking forward to. In fact, I am going to pick up The Radium Girls as soon as I finish writing this post!

Both The Radium Girl by Kate Moore and A Short History of the Russian Revolution by Groffrey Swain are books I received from Netgalley to review. Both are historical, nonfiction. The Radium Girls follows the stories of various women who painted clock faces with the element radium to make them illuminate before the heath risks were truly know. It explores their stories and the effect their work had on them as the years passed. I have started reading this one already and it is historical, but also personable. It does not take away the humanity of these women with endless facts and figures.

A Short History of the Russian Revolution is something I studied while at school and I continue to be interested in.  So, when I saw this on Netgalley I submitted a request right away and was thrilled to get approved.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle I have gotten myself. Both are books I have very much wanted to get to. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses when it first came out and enjoyed it, but sadly I have not gotten to the second book in the series, I plan to correct that before the next book comes out. Fingers crossed I succeed!

On a more classic note I recently have been on a Sherlock Holmes binge and I am reading all of the stories and short stories in publication order and The Sign of Four is next in line. I have to say I was expecting the writing to be dull and difficult, but it read very modern. I have been devouring the stories.


What are you reading this month?

    I’m currently reading Maus and Lady Midnight but I want to read Court of Mist and Fury so bad I don’t even know how to express it in words 😂. Because I’ve dedicated myself to reading Lady Midnight and already have Carve the Mark just waiting on my shelf, I just don’t have time to start another book right now :(. Ugh, I hate how I am always seeing these reviews for AMAZING books on blogs, and I’m like ‘I HAVE to read this soon’ but then I promise myself that for 100 books. Honestly though, Court of Mist and Fury is pretty high on the list. The variety of books offered to us but jeez it’s so overwhelming sometimes!! 😬😆

      I read Maus when I was at Uni, one of the best assigned reading I had. How are you liking it? I have to agree I find myself going “I am reading that soon!” so often that it is impossible. There are to many great sounding books to choose from it is difficult. >.< I have resorted to putting them in my libib app so I can keep track of books I want to read, but not buy just yet.
