April 2019: Book of the Month

We’re already in the middle of May, so this post is coming a bit late – but now that I’m actually keeping track of what I’m reading, I can curate my favourite book of the month. But first, let’s have a look at the books I finished in April:

  1. Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens
  2. Forgotten Girl by Eva-Maria Silber
  3. Das siebte Kreuz by Anna Seghers
  4. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
  5. My Own Devices by Dessa
  6. A Working Theory of Love by Scott Hutchins
  7. The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr
  8. How to Like Everything: A Utopia by Paul Shepheard
  9. Erde und Asche by Atiq Rahimi
  10. Hundehaut by Fatos Kongoli
  11. Class War: The Privatization of Childhood by Megan Erickson
  12. “Ihr seid hier im Paradies”: meine Kindheit in Nordkorea by Hyok Kang

Now to the big question: comparing all of these, which one was my favourite of the bunch? There are a few close contestors: Murder Most Unladylike, Hundehaut, Erde und Asche, and Ihr seid hier im Paradies were all great – and they’re all very different from one another, which makes the decision even harder. If I had to choose one though, I think I would take Murder Most Unladylike, just because it was so much fun to read.
