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?
Attachments / Rainbow Rowell
Warm, funny, full of heart. My hometown girl debuted a fine first novel. It’s no Eleanor & Park but I loved it just the same.
Carry On, Warrior / Glennon Doyle Melton
Bless you, Glennon. I’ve been a longtime blog reader but had never read her book. Pages and stories full of encouragement, grace, authenticity and sass.
Sycamore Row / John Grisham
I’ve been reading Grisham for 17 years, and this sequel to A Time to Kill proved again to me why he’s one of America’s great storytellers.
Dear George Clooney: Please Marry My Mom / Susin Nielsen
A total gem of a book. I was filled with hope for YA reading as I cheered on the darling heroine. Now I gotta go rearrange my closet.
Madame Tussaud / Michelle Moran
One of the most famous sculptors of all time blurs the lines between Royalist and Jacobin. No holistic history lesson here, but an enjoyable read nonetheless. Cake, anyone?
