So, in the last month I’ve been on a bit of a reading kick. Normally, my life doesn’t afford me the time to sit around and read, but I went on vacation and plowed through a few books. The trend didn’t stop when I got home. I just had to finish the one I reading on the plane, then the next one after that…
I’m a picky reader. It has to keep my attention, and like I said, I don’t have time to sit around and read, so it better be GOOD!
I loved Unbroken. That’s what kicked off my reading frenzy. The book was passed to me by some friends at church. It’s a true story and they knew the brother of Louis Zamparini, so it made it that much more special to read. The Paris Wife hooked me from the moment I picked it up. It’s about Hemingway’s first wife and they’re year in Paris and abroad. It’s written so well, I think I read it in two sittings. Dovekeepers was the book I read on the plane and ended up having a few late nights after to finish it. The author is such a great storyteller.
The Soldier’s Wife was another book that tells such a beautiful story. I love learning about history while I’m sucked into a world outside my own. Maybe that’s why historical fiction has such a draw for me! I know I’m a bit late to the game with Bossypants, but it was just what I needed after reading a few heavy books. It was so funny and it was like Tina Fey was reading it to me! The next book on my list is Cutting for Stone. A friend recommended it and it looks really good! I’ll tell you all about it when I’m finished!
