April started out really strong for me and then fizzled out, but that’s ok. I was able to read 2 books during April and they were both ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) that I received through NetGalley so that was very exciting for me!
Both authors were new to me. In total I read 638 pages and my average rating was 3.5 stars.
Full reviews of these books are in prior posts on my blog but short recaps of the books are below:
I have 2 more ARCs waiting for me in NetGalley. I’ll be splitting those up between May and June and will post reviews as I finish them. Here’s hoping I have a more productive reading month during May!
This is an ebook which comes out April 16th that I was fortunate enough to preview from NetGalley!
The book follows Vivienne’s life during both WWI and WWII. She helped the troops during WWI where she and her sister, Olive, drive the wounded soldiers to get medical attention. During WWII, Vivienne helps take care of a little girl, Pearl, who is an evacuee from London. Vivienne is also married to Edmund who is less than thrilled about having Pearl in their house. The book does a great job of switching between the two wars and even though it is historical fiction, there are some true elements that did take place during each of the wars.
This story was good, but the book started out a little slow for me and for this reason, I rated it a 3/5 stars.
