My reading goes up and down. At certain times, I devour books, and other times, it will take me a while to get through one. Right now, I’m in a major reading mood. I’ve been reading like a crazy person, and it has been awesome! Here are a few of my favorites from the past few months.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. It’s so good! This is one of the best novels I’ve read in awhile. It’s full of twists and turns and surprises.
Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld. This book was so much fun. If you’re a purist and don’t want anyone messing with the original version, this isn’t for you. But if you’d love to see a present day “Liz” and Darcy, I think you’ll enjoy it.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I enjoy a little celebrity gossip, and I love women who are smart and doing cool stuff; therefore, I really liked this book. I also loved that she made a big deal about how hard it is to write a book. I’m right there with you, Amy. It kicks my butt every time.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. If someone tells me the ending of a book made them cry, I often skip it. I don’t really enjoy depressing books, but I have to say, even though this book dealt with some tough issues, I would still recommend it. Sometimes the heroine drove me crazy, but the two characters had enough chemistry and the storyline was compelling enough (boy, is it compelling) that I loved them anyway.
