It's time for the April 2015 book reviews! Every month, I share what books I read during the previous month and give my opinions on them. If you would like to see any of the previous reviews, follow the link here.
Though I started many books last month, I only managed to finish reading three. Its always a little surprising when some incredibly famous books are not your cup of tea. That being said, I did read some great books this month.
The Verdict: A masterpiece to be read with any drink of your choice
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins - This book has been getting a lot of attention recently and for a good reason. It's short fast-paced thriller with an odd yet captivating premise. Our main character Rachel takes the same train every morning and has started to recognize a couple in one of the homes that she passes by. But one day, when it is reported that the wife is missing, Rachel is sure that she has information that can help. Told through multiple points of view, Paula Hawkins does a fantastic job of presenting flawed characters that are frustrating yet relatable. Though the ending was slightly disappointing for me, I still enjoyed it.
The Verdict: A quick read to accompany your cup of tea or coffee
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling - Everyone loves Mindy Kaling and her book came highly recommended. I was a little disappointed that it didn't offer any life advice, but I found it to be an enjoyable and fast-paced read. Is it weird that at times she sounded like my best friend? To be honest, I don't really remember anything specific about it except that it put me in a good mood. Mindy Kaling is incredibly determined, sweet, and optimistic and this book is great for when you are feeling down.
The Verdict: A light read to brighten your spirits.
