Alison's April Reads

Updated: Jul 14, 2020


April was a better reading month for me than March. Once we hunkered down and accepted our lockdown predicament (and I put the Tiger King behind me), I was able to concentrate and only take breaks to obsessively check my phone for breaking news every 20 minutes instead of every 10 minutes.

I read 13 books this month and of my favorites two were nonfiction that read like novels and are getting a ton of hype, deservedly. Hidden Valley Road, by Robert Kolker, recounts the story of a family of 14 with six schizophrenic kids. This is Big by Marisa Meltzer tells the story of the founder of Weight Watchers and one woman's journey through the program. I can’t do them justice here, but I promise you that they are both amazing and I tore through them.


The Floating Feldmans is a funny and poignant book about a family celebrating their mother’s 70th birthday on a cruise. And since no one in their right mind will ever go on a cruise again, this is like a nice historical piece.


In The Majesties one sister poisons her entire family, the other sister has to figure out why. Would I care if someone poisoned me now in the middle of 60 days with my family? Interesting question.


Defending Jacob is an amazing thriller with a true twist at the end. Skip the show, read the book.


If you’re not reading @ronacharles Book World column in the Washington Post—start. Happy Reading!
