No joke, it's April already! What are you reading this month? I'm starting with The Time in Between by María Dueñas; I started it last month but still have about 500 pages to go!
in the country of last things has crossed over from March into April for me - should finish it tonight though...
I'm reading Buffalo West Wing and still working on Full Dark No Stars.
Two books that were 3/4 finished on March 31st were The Brass Verdict and Evil Eclairs.
I love Michael Connelly, but the Mickey Haller character hasn't grown on me yet, so far I prefer Harry Bosch. I do enjoy how Connelly crosses over his characters though.
Just finished The Hunger Games and now I have to ask myself if I should just carry on with the rest of the series. Probably will with how book 1 finished but I'll decide tomorrow or when I get the chance to pick up the next book to read.
@10 - I read them straight through last week because I was so engrossed in the story and couldn't stand not knowing what happened next. Since my husband read them first, all the books were just sitting there waiting for me. :)
I just started an Early Reviewer Book, The Little Red Guard.
10/11--I'm being forced to read the series slowly. The books belong to my daughter and she won't let me cut in front of her.
>8 I added Blue Like Jazz to the TBR pile recently, but since it arrived this year, I probably won't read it till next year. Still - I 'll be checking your thread to see how you like it.
I started A Discovery of Witches which looks like it will be really good. However, I have also received notification that the last three of the Steven Saylor series are waiting for me at the library AND Amazon has shipped the latest of the Precious Ramotswe series. Oh, my!
I finished the little sleep and the invention of morel which were both great, read about 50 pages of the hare with amber eyes this morning not gripped so far but it's generally got great reviews so assuming its a slow burner
I also started my TIOLI 12 months book A tragic night remembered - titanic 100 years - April 15, 1912 To April 15, 2012 which is an e-book and disappointingly doesn't seem to be proof read, not something to read all in one go I think as its mainly a collection of writings from people who survived the sinking so just dipping in occasionally
Started Things Fall Apart for the group read. I have no idea why I've not read this before, but that's what LT group reads are for, right? :)

@ 33 -- Ella Minnow Pea is so much fun! I hope you're enjoying it!
I am - getting more difficult to figure out what's being written so getting a little slower to read.
After finishing A Brief Madness this morning, I need something lighter and more coherent so I will pick up Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry and read it for my Plays category. Loved the movie and the review Dejah_Thoris wrote! After that, I have Things Fall Apart by Chinua Acheb and Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon, both Group Reads this month, and I am still listening to The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom.
I'm currently making progress on Oscar and Lucinda and just finished my April/May portion of Don Quixote for the group read. I'm also reading several YAs including Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu which I saw reviewed over in the 75 book group and just have to read.
I'm also reading a children's book, The Island of Thieves by Josh Lacey (for some reason the touchstone will only go to Reader's Digest Condensed Books 1995 v03 by Reader's Digest, no alternatives offered!).
I'm having a great time with my first David Mitchell read - Cloud atlas. Very engrossing stuff!
I've just started The Marsh King's Daughter by Elizabeth Chadwick.
I'm half-way through Soulless and am enjoying it quite a bit, altough I could do with a tiny tad less panting and bosom-heaving.
oh I loved Black Swan Green although it that was in part as it reminded me of my childhood.
Just finished the extremely good noir/sci-fi Osama by Lavie Tidhar and now I am a bit at a loss what to read.. I was looking at the next tale in The dark philosophers by Gwyn Thomas.. although as dark isn't the word for the grim poverty and black humour of the 1st story I have to be in a good mood to read it.
Well I've finished Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, and Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.
I'm still working on The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery and am starting Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky and Wings by Aprilynne Pike for the April TIOLI
I just started Lev Grossman's The Magicians and am worried that it'll be just a bit too derivative of Narnia/Harry Potter. Does anyone know if it takes on a personality of its own as the story continues?
I'm reading my first Rizzoli and Isles The Surgeon byTess Gerritsen and I am really enjoying it. I'm not sure what's next.
I'm forced to take a day's halt with the fabolous Cloud Atlas (I lost the damn book on a train!!!) and am in the meantime reading the potery of Tomas Tranströmer, this year's Nobel laureate. It's really good.
I finished the last book of the series that took place in 1st century BC Rome by Steven Saylor, The Triumph of Caesar, and I feel like I've completed a course and can now move on to regular reading. I also finished an ER, The Odditorium which was a collection of short stories. I am now reading another ER, The Boy Who Stole the Leopard's Spots and trying to finish Cinder, a YA fantasy.
Anders, take heart that at least you're passing on a good book for someone to read. Small comfort, I know, but hopefully it helps.
I'm finally starting The Elegance of the Hedgehog for the April group read...hopefully I'll be able to contribute to the discussion about it before the month is over!
Finally catching up on LT today, have read the wonderful osama, the not so good a casual revolution and one i've been meaning to read for a while above the snowline this week and have just started survivors the animals and plants that time has left behind
Looking forward to your review of Above the snowline, Pete! I've already seen your rating :)
I'm about to start the new Maisie Dobbs, Elegy for Eddie, I've been looking forward to it!
In the mood for a good crime novel, I picked up Tresspasser by Paul Doiron on a whim. It's good so far.
Love Bernie Rhodenbarr! Always a fun quick read. If you haven't already, make sure you check out Lawrence Block's Matt Scudder series. He is great character also.
