Monthly Summary: April 2019

Welcome back to another Monthly Summary here on Pages and Tea.

April sent some interesting reads my way. I ventured into the post-apocalyptic setting of Last Ones Left Alive and witnessed young Orpen discovering more of a world in which zombie-like skrake are a constant threat to life.
Next I meandered along a stretch of the Thames and discovered life amongst the storytelling locals when a mysterious girl is rescued and returns to life almost before their eyes in Diane Setterfield’s latest book.
From the leisurely pace of Once Upon a River I was thrown into the tense, page-turning world of Sleep by C. L. Taylor, as Anna, who has taken up a job in a hotel on a remote island comes to realise that someone wants her dead. The storm sets in, the island is cut off, and there’s every chance that she won’t make it out alive.

When I wasn’t reading I found time to participate in Top Ten Tuesday, writing about books I’d savour on a rainy day (which is perfect reading time, I think), and a few of the things that may encourage me to pick up a book (like I really need an excuse to do that!).

Here’s what happened in April on Pages and Tea…
