I’ve been reading some awesome books lately! You know when you are just on a roll with finding great ones that you can’t put down? I love that. I read tons over Thanksgiving and need to get a few more books to read over Christmas. You know I love your suggestions, so please suggest away if you’re reading something you currently love! I practically find out about all the books I read from blog comments.
So here’s my latest list!
Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt – absolutely loved this one. It covers tough subjects through the eyes of a teenager.
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty – while I didn’t like this one as much as I liked her other book, What Alice Forgot, this still drew me in and kept me till the end.
Whistling in the Dark by Lesley Kagen – I started this book a year ago and put it down. Glad I picked it back up! I really loved this and it’s different than anything I normally would read. It’s told from a child’s perspective and is set in Milwaukee in the 50′s. I love books with a strong sense of place and really enjoyed this one!
War Brides by Helen Bryan – this is a SAGA of a novel and it took me awhile to get through. It read like a movie script and I fell in love with all the characters. It took me a little while to get into, but once I did I was totally hooked on all the drama.
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain – one of the best books I’ve read all year hands down and my favorite off this list. I have read all of Diane Chamberlain’s books and this was my very favorite. It’s set in North Carolina in the 60′s. I can’t recommend this book enough if you’re looking for perfect snow day reading.
Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld – I love everything this author writes. My favorite was American Wife but this is right up there. It’s a very interesting book. It made me happy, sad and mad. A great read!
