april 2018 books

Well, this month was a quick one in our household, as evidenced by the fact that I read only one book in April. With Easter, my husband’s birthday, out-of-town visitors, and a toddler insisting on later and later bedtimes, I didn’t find much free time to read. But, the one book I did read happened to be quite excellent. I’m about halfway through Sally Kohn’s new book, but I’m finding it hard to keep going. I’ll give a full report on that next month.

Rabbit Cake by Annie Hartnett

Once again, I’m not sure how I heard about this book, but it ended up being one of my favorite reads of the year so far. Coincidentally, the story takes place in Alabama (where I currently live and have lived for much of my life) and centers around a contemplative young girl who has just lost her mother to a tragic accident. The author does an excellent job of describing the elements of the grieving process from the perspective of a young (albeit precocious) girl. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the quirky characters in this book, which is likely why it took me just a few days to read. I would most definitely read more by this author.

5/5 stars.
