April was also the UCF Orlando Book Festival where I had so much fun. I'm so happy I was able to attend (and participate as an "official blogger"). I met some awesome authors and got to meet in person some wonderful bloggers I've been following for a while. Can't wait for next year!
I didn't post about it before, but this month I was also interviewed over at The Gatekeeper's Post which is a website about the publishing industry. You can see that here.
As for books, I posted a review for Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea which I loved! Also non-fiction but on a completely different note, Bossypants by Tina Fey was as hilarious and wonderfully Tina Fey as expected. (She happens to be hosting SNL Saturday, May 7th!) My favorite fiction of the reviews I posted this month were Bent Road and Leaving Atlanta.
Other books I reviewed:
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman
- Where She Went by Gayle Forman
- Codependent No More Workbook by Melody Beattie
- Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
- Pox by Michael Willrich
- Lowboy by John Wray
- Husband and Wife by Leah Stewart
I'm excited about a lot of the books I plan on reading and/or reviewing in May. I'm currently reading a non-fiction that I'm loving and can't wait to talk about!
