Monthly Summary: April 2022

Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.

BeautifulOnesIt’s time for another monthly summary.

April began with a book by an author I’ve previously enjoyed as I picked up The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. What I really like is that each book I’ve picked up by this author has been completely different in every way, and I can’t wait to try another of her books. So far I think Mexican Gothic remains my favourite.

RoomintheAtticNext, a new-to-me author, Louise Douglas. The cover of The Room in the Attic first attracted my attention but the story sounded like one I might enjoy and that turned out to be the case. It’s a dual-timeline mystery with an atmospheric and eerie setting in All Hallows, a grand old building that served as an asylum/hospital in one timeline and a boarding school in the other. I enjoyed the book so much that I’d like to check out more by Louise Douglas.

I managed to check up on some more reviews this month, including my most recent Dark Tower read, The Wind Through the Keyhole. I would like to get back to the series soon and begin Wolves of the Calla.

Top Ten Tuesday also featured this month. I made use of the ‘freebie’ topic to create a list of books featuring lighthouses or sailing ships as I seem to have come across quite a few of those recently, many of which have made their way onto my TBR pile and into that blog post.
I also wrote about some of the authors I haven’t read yet, but want to. For that post I choose series or trilogies, but there are many standalone books from authors I’d like to check out to, so perhaps that will feature in another Top Ten Tuesday sometime.

Here’s a summary of April on Pages and Tea…

    I think Mexican Gothic and Certain Dark Things are my favourites. But the beautiful ones was also really good – and very different. In fact all her books are so very different and standalone, which is great.

      I think I went into The Beautiful Ones thinking there would be a little more of a fantasy element than there was. I did enjoy it, even though it wasn’t what I was first expecting.
