On My Nightstand: April 2019

Another month, another nightstand!  There is nothing I love more than spending a few hours browsing a bookstore, espresso in hand.  Bad for the wallet but good for the soul!  A recent trip to Barnes & Noble brought these good reads my way.

Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi

I’ve never read Oyeyemi, which is a real shame, but I’m glad to finally reverse that statement with her latest release, Gingerbread.  The hype for this one is real.  I decided to pick it up at the recommendation of @literatureandchill; hopefully it lives up to her praise!

A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza

A Place for Us has been on my radar since it came out (and I realize I say that a lot).  As SJP for Hogarth’s first release as an imprint, it already created a lot of buzz when it came out.  Recently, I loved SJP’s second pick, Golden Child, so it feels like the right time to pick up A Place for Us.

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

The praise for An American Marriage has been slowing building and building, from Oprah to the National Book Award.  Finally, I am unable to resist the pull of Tayari Jones’s latest title.  The synopsis sounds highly intriguing, and its spare page count is exactly what I need right now.

What are you reading this month?  Let’s chat!
