A Twitter-inspired look at books I’ve been reading recently. (And here’s what I read last month.) What’s on your bookshelf these days?
The Rosie Project / Graeme Simsion
A fascinating and heartwarming read with an unlikely hero. Brilliant characters and an innovative plot made for a can’t-put-down story. (P.S. This one is still $1.99 on Amazon for Kindle. Get it get it!)
The Friday Night Knitting Club / Kate Jacobs
This one didn’t grab me as much as I expected & hoped it would, but I often find audiobooks slow. I also don’t know how to knit. Yet.
Sisterland / Curtis Sittenfeld
I loved Prep & American Wife, but I did not love Sisterland. Paranormal aside, the characters felt downright boring. I still look forward to Sittenfeld’s next.
The Coal Tattoo / Silas House
A darkly beautiful Appalachian tale of sisters, death, love and loss. His storytelling was rich, but the end fell flat for me.
Bel Canto / Ann Patchett
It took me ages to get there, but I loved this book. It was my first foray into Ann Patchett, and I’m hooked.
