I read 10 books this month, most of them excellent reads that I could not put down.
I loved this memoir. It was interesting that the author is Steve Jobs’ daughter but it was so compelling and well written that I would have enjoyed it even if her father hadn’t been famous.
I read this in a couple of sittings. I got swept up in the characters’ lives and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Gingerbread was the first Book by this author that I have read. It was quirky and beautifully written and I enjoyed the female characters’ relationships. It lagged a bit in the middle but I glad I finished it. I look forward to reading her backlist titles
I love everything Anne Lamott has written and it was great to return to her writing.
I loved this collection of short stories. I never would have found it in my own and I was surprised since my kids are grown that these stories would speak to me but they did. Highly recommend!
Jen Beagen was a new to me author. Her book won’t be for everyone in light of somewhat explicit content but I loved her dark humor and unique voice. I can’t wait to read her new book (sequel) which is out now.
I read The Dreamers in a weekend. Another excellent read from Karen Walker (I enjoyed The Age of Miracles as well.)
I enjoyed When You Read This. A bit chick-litty but in a good way.
I read this beautiful collection of poems.
And this beautiful collection of letters.
And I am thoroughly enjoying this murder mystery set in the South of France.
I abandoned three books more than halfway through.
I found these to be a little more explicit/upsetting than I wanted to deal with:
And I got halfway through this one and just didn’t care enough about the characters to continue.
I just spent a weekend in NYC with my husband for our anniversary (so fun!)
I went to a favorite indie bookstore and bought this book which I can’t wait to read.
Linking up to @annebogel today who is such a wonderful resource for great new books. I also find books I love through my favorite indie bookstore which just happens to be in Georgia. Check out @bookshelftville. Many of my favorite reads are books I got through their wonderful #shelfsubscription program.
