I love discussing books with people because of all the different opinions. Some might absolutely hate a book that’s my favorite of all time. I might hate a book that it seems like everyone loves.
For instance the book The Four Winds by Kristen Hannah. I’m sorry y’all, I couldn’t even finish it! I skimmed it so I get the point but really I could not keep reading. It’s the most depressing book I’ve ever read. I normally love the everything Kristen Hannah writes but this was a miss for me.
I also finished Magic For Liars by Sarah Gailey which is a murder mystery mixed with a little magic and some family drama. Really a solid 3 star read. Which means I liked it but nothing to write home about. It was a great change of pace after the ever so depressing Winds.
Finished Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman. I love that author. This one was about a neighborhood and the lives of the people who live there. One struggles with her weight, one is having an affair, there’s a mystery over where one wife went. It was just a bunch of real life stories. Some of which it hit too close to home and I didn’t think I liked it but a few days after finishing it I was still thinking about it and I like that in a book.
Currently reading The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I’m only a quarter of the way in but holy crap this book is just want I wanted. A real escape with mystery and fun banter and witty comebacks. Yup I’m all in on this one.
Listening to Malibu Rising and loving it on audio. Not far enough to say but pretty intriguing right from the start.
That’s all I’ve got. Just a summary of my reading life for now.
