April Absorbed In Pages, Monthly
My reading month for April was really great. I enjoyed everything I read + would highly recommend them all for different reasons. Check out my month below!
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou — beautifully written + poignant memoir about Maya’s coming of age
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary— a romance about two roommates who share a bed + barely see each other
My Year of Rest + Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh — a quiet, meditative look at an unnamed narrator who takes a year to rest after losing her parents
We Live for the We: the Political Power of Black Motherhood by Dani McClain — a nonfiction read that’s part personal, part investigative that shows the meaning of black motherhood being inherently political
Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls by T Kira Madden — stellar debut about a biracial, queer coming of age story written with such honesty + lyrical prose
Miracle Creek by Angie Kim — a literary, courtroom drama about an immigrant family + a woman accused of murder...this book is a well constructed + told mystery + look what the lengths a family will go for each other
