Libraries are fantastic places, and ever since I was little they have been an amazing way for me to read lots of books without having to buy them all.
I never would have been able to read half the books I have without the library- and I really recommend checking out your local system!
I love thinking of new books I want to read soon, and I’m constantly adding to my list when I think of new ideas or when I hear new recommendations.
In this post, I’ve put together 5 books on my April reading list- don’t forget to let me know all of your recommendations too.
‘Moving Beyond Words’ by Gloria Steinem
I love Gloria Steinem, but I’ve not got round to reading this one yet! My parents bought it for me for Christmas, so it’s taken me a while to get round to this one.
I love reading a bit of non-fiction if it’s by someone interesting or inspiring, and Steinem’s writing is relevant even today.
I also love all of Gloria Steinem’s other books, so I’m sure I’ll find this one equally as interesting and captivating.
‘Wolf Hall’ by Hilary Mantel
I recently received a recommendation for this book, and I really want to give it a go!
I love the Tudors, and I think this will be an insightful and well-written look into the Tudor period, including all the bits of history I love to read about.
‘Wolf Hall’ is all about the events of the Tudor period from the perspective of Thomas Cromwell, and it is definitely high on my April reading list.
‘Panic Years’ by Nell Frizzell
This is a bit of a cheat because I’m actually reading this book at the moment- but I’ll finish it in April.
‘Panic Years’ is a sort of biography by Nell, talking all about her life as a single 20- and 30-something, and that all consuming question- does she want a baby or not?
I’ve really enjoyed reading this book. Even though I think it is probably aimed at a slightly older audience, I love Nell’s honest narration- and it’s such an insightful and interesting look into the “big” questions in life, particularly for women.
‘Theroux the Keyhole’ by Louis Theroux
I recently took this book out from the library, and I’m really excited to try it. I love Louis Theroux, and I find his documentaries engaging and interesting.
He always chooses to investigate relevant topics or communities, and I love the style of his honest and raw documentaries.
I’m excited to find out more about Louis Theroux and his work in this book, and this is definitely up there on my April reading list.
‘The Distance’ by Zoe Folbigg
I picked this book up from my local library.
A fiction book about two people in a long-distance relationship, this book interested me- and I thought it sounded like the perfect addition to my April reading list.
‘The Distance’ is about two people who think they’ve found love, but there are lots of obstacles in their way. It sounds light-hearted and easy, and the perfect Spring read!
Have you read any of these books? What is on your April reading list? Do you like to read fiction or non-fiction books?
