My 5 Favourite April Reads

I read sixteen books in April. Yes, once again I’ve been powering through the books although I still found time to celebrate the easing of lockdown by adding a few new ones to my TBR pile.

The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton – a hugely impressive debut, full of inventiveness and fizzing with energy
Lost Property by Helen Paris – a novel you most certainly don’t want to leave behind on a train or bus
Together by Luke Adam Hawker – a book of illustrations that is beautifully produced and would make a wonderful gift
Skelton’s Guide to Suitcase Murders (Arthur Skelton #2) by David Stafford – a delightful addition to the series with its combination of period detail, ingenious mystery and amiable humour
The Heretic’s Mark (The Jackdaw Mysteries #4) by S. W. Perry – another gripping, atmospheric and dramatic historical page-turner
