This is the most reading I’ve done in any quarter this year (26 books), and it’s mainly thanks to audiobooks. Clealry, I’ve been spending a ton of time in front of my computer, late at night, working. Multi-tasking at its finest.
I read this one on our beach trip to Galveston and I couldn’t put it down. But. . . it’s also depressing as all get out. And some heavy langague. I know the entire Internet is in love with this book, and I can see why, but I also hesitate to recommend it. Proceed at your own risk.
This historical fiction novel really drew me in, but it’s maybe a little racier than I’m comfortable recommending. Also, prepare for a little heartbreak. I might have cried a tiny bit in the car when I finished up the audiobook.
Lots of comparisons to Malcolm Gladwell, and this one was pretty interesting (I repeated huge parts of it to Bart), but. . . no one is Malcolm Gladwell. Listened to this one in the car while we drove for hours and hours and hours from Texas to North Carolina.
I couldn’t say no to this book after how much I enjoyed “Me Before You” and this one was no disappointment, about two women who own the same painting, one during WWII and one in the present day. I think I ignored my children a bit for two days while I read this one.
I loved What Alice Forgot SO much, but I’ve been a bit disappointed by all her other books. This one was much better than the pretty ridiculous The Hypnotist’s Love Story, but it wasn’t on the top of my favorite books.
Fluffy, but fun.
I’m glad to have read this one because it’s SO wildly popular right now. It’s an odd book, but the audiobook definitely charmed me, even if I wasn’t always QUITE sure what was going on.
I’ve tried to read this series on multiple occasions over the past five years, and finally did it this year. Mixed emotions.
A quick Sunday afternoon read. Totally enjoyable and cute.
I think Beverly Cleary’s books are for someone older than Ella – she seems to enjoy them, but I feel like they are slightly over her head.
I can’t remember who recommended this one to me (it’s about young Sherlock Holmes), but it wasn’t bad. I’m just not a huge mystery/adventure reader.
You all know I loved this one. If you haven’t read it, you should.
So fascinating. Reminded me how I always love a book about food.
I liked the first book, Ruby Red, but I LOVED this one. When I finished, I was really sad the next book doesn’t come out for another week or so.
I don’t generally love books with more than one story line, so the fact that this had FOUR storylines (or was it five?) made me nervous. But, actually, I really was engaged (pun not intended) by it.
I loved reading this with Ella. And when I got all choked up at the end, I felt exactly like my mom.
If you like Jim Gaffigan, you’ll like this one. He narrates the audiobook so. . .get that.
Great premise, mediocre execution.
I know eveyrone loves this book. But . . . kind of nothing happens. I was relieved when the audiobook finally was over (also, I love Jim Dale for Harry Potter, but he wasn’t my favorite for this audiobook).
I quite liked this, but I struggle with books that hinge on a romance involving adultery.
I feel like I’ve read much less YA lately, so it was nice to pick this one up. Nothing groundbreaking, but solid.
And scene. Read anything good this quarter? Suggest away.
