April 2018 Wrap Up

/ posted in: Reading

I read 13 books this month.  This month the books were either depressing nonfiction or fluffy historical romance.  I don’t seem to have an in-between right now.  I have instituted a rule that I can only read historical fiction authors recommended by people on romance Twitter.  So far, that has served me well.

The books were:

  • 3 nonfiction
  • 0 audio books because I started from the beginning of The West Wing Weekly podcast
  • Set in England, Yemen, Kenya, Zimbabwe/Mozambique and the U.S.

The authors were:

  • 8unique white women, 2 white men, 1 African-American woman, 1 African man, and 1 Middle Eastern man

Reading All Around the World challenge from Howling Frog Books

  • Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
  • Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.

I actually added countries this month.  I added Kenya, Yemen, and Mozambique.

Now there are badges for getting an continent done!  I’m nowhere close because Australia is bundled with the Pacific Ocean island countries.
