My goal was 15 books this year... we're four months in and I've read nine. So I say things are looking pretty good to accomplish that bad boy. I always love hearing what others are reading and finding some new good reads (along with which ones to stay away from...), so here are mine!
IT ENDS WITH US: a powerful story of love loss, definitely not just another romance novel.
A HUNDRED SUMMERS: go back in time to 1938 as a hurricane and other 'social' storms brew on the east coast.
CANCEL THE WEDDING: Olivia goes to Georgia to scatter her mothers ashes and uncover her secret past life. Ehh.
THE NIGHTINGALE: probably the best book I've ever read. A heartbreaking tale of two French sisters during WWII.
THE MAGNOLIA STORY: because it's Chip and Joanna - duh. Read this. It's beyond good.
THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES: three generations of midwives tales all run together.
TRULY MADLY GUILTY: Trying to figure out what happens at the BBQ will keep you on your toes.
THE THINGS WE KEEP: Imagine being diagnosed with Alzheimers at age 38 and your family decides to commit you...
WHERE'D YOU GO BERNADETTE: Such a random story. I could never get totally into it.
Next up -- I've got THIS ONE on deck. Anyone read it?
