April Wrap Up

April was a crazy month guys. A month of happy moments, and of moments I kind of wish I could forget. New job. New prospects. Loosing some old friends. Hey, that's the way life goes right? If nothing else, it was a month of introspection :). That, my friends, is always a good thing.

Back to the books! I was lucky enough to read some real gems this month! Please pay particular attention to the books marked with a 5/5 rating. Trust me, these are well worth your time. I hope you find something that you love in this month's reading list.

The Whites of Their Eyes by Andrew Clements - (3/5) Kind of slow, but the audio book was good.
Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi - (3/5) Great Mancusi voice! Not so great story line.
