Which books are worth the read and which should you skip? Find out what books I’ve been reading lately and whether I recommend them.
Welcome to my new monthly series Worth the Read. At the end of each month, I’ll be wrapping up my monthly reading with a list of all the books I read. I often talk about books on my to-read list, so now it’s time to see what I thought after I read them. Each month, I’ll break down my monthly reading list for you so you can know which books I found worth the read, and which books I wish I had skipped.
Another month of reading down, and while my numbers have dropped from previous months, I was able to get in quite a few books. 11 fiction and 2 nonfiction. In my list, I have eight new 2019 releases, one 2018 bestseller, two classics, and two older books I’d never read. Only one book was a re-read. I read 10 books from the library, I owned one book, and read 2 advance review copies on my Kindle app.
This month, I reached a high of five overdue library books, though I currently am only down to one. Luckily my library doesn’t do overdue fines.
As a result of an injury, I didn’t go to the gym much, so I didn’t listen to any audiobooks this month. But you didn’t come here to read about the numbers. Let’s get down to the book recommendations. Keeping reading to find out which books I loved and which I felt weren’t worth the read.

One of the best perks of being a book blogger is receiving advance review copies (ARCs) of upcoming book releases from publishers.
At the beginning of each month, I cover all the new book releases coming out, and the April 2019 book releases are right around the corner. Here’s a peek at the April releases I’ve already read.
