Jenne’s Quest to Read 100 Books in 2018: April update!

Jenne from BAPL’s Youth Services department is on a quest to read 100 books this year. Here is the update for April!

As you can see, April was a slow reading month. I’m working on getting a small business off the ground in addition to my regular job at the library, so I didn’t have as much free time this month! But don’t worry, we’re only 10 days in May and I’m already on book #5 so I’m still very much on track to hit 100 by the year’s end (and probably even before).

My favorites:


  • We’ll Always Have Parrots by Donna Andrews- I discovered this series of punnily titled mysteries while on vacation in Florida in February, and I’ve been enjoying them ever since. The birds from the title always have some role in the story, which makes for an amusing mystery.
  • A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness– The first in a trilogy about a vampire and a witch falling in love and fighting bad guys, this book sometimes made me feel like I was reading Twilight for grown ups. But I also really enjoyed the story and the characters and am about to start the second in the trilogy.
