April was all about finding books to go on my upcoming Summer Reading List…which meant lots of lighter fare, page turners, and sampling. I found some good ones for the list, which will be coming out towards the end of May. Since I’ve been reading so much lighter fare lately, I’m looking forward to getting back to some more “literary” books for a bit. I’m all about the change of pace these days!
I also debuted a new, notes-style review format called Sarah’s Snippets. If you find yourself frequently scanning book reviews (rather than reading every word), then this is right up your alley!

Favorite Posts from Fellow Book Bloggers
- Julianne at Outlandish Lit takes the creativity cake by pairing “books with their reality TV soul mates” in her new feature, Grapes of Trash.
- I loved Tanya at 52 Books or Bust‘s unique review of Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum, a book that has already been reviewed in the traditional way many times over.
- I found out that Ann at Books on the Table shares my hobby of “book stalking” at the beach and loved how she told the Washington Post to “lighten up” (in reference to its likening of Bill Bryson to a Danielle Steel novel, among other things) in her Vacation Version of Waiting on Wednesday.
