A post for April and May's books

Here they are, in no real particular order and without a lot of commentary.  Asterisks mark the library books.  My Tony Hillerman streak continues, happily.

Dry Bones. Craig Johnson.*
The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go so Their Children Can Succeed. Jessica Lahey*
Coyote. Tony Hillerman.*
Blessing Way. Tony Hillerman.*
Dance Hall of the Dead. Tony Hillerman*
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Marie Kondo.*
Pieces: A Year in Poems and Quilts. Anna Grossnickle Hines.*
Spark Joy: An Illustrated Master Class on the Art of Organizing and Tidying Up. Marie Kondo.*
The Little Spark: 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity. Carrie Bloomstein.*
The Girl in the Spider's Web. David Lagercrantz.* 

Summary: I love the library, how-to's, pop psychology, and stoic men solving crimes.  I'm not quite ready to follow Marie Kondo's teachings and I don't know why because I love her.  Tony Hillerman makes me want to drive out West more so than usual.  I don't know why I keep reading Lisbeth Salander novels because I don't love them.  I would like to give out The Gift of Failure at baby showers, but feel like that's weird.
