I accidentally hit publish on this post the other day, and even though I immediately deleted it . . . it still went out to email subscribers. Sorry about that! It’s possible that you missed seeing that day’s post if you didn’t download the entire email. It was called “If One is Good, Then Four Is Better, Right?” I’ll go ahead and tell you that the answer is “wrong.” Four is not necessarily better than one.
So here we go again with this list of random books I’ve read recently. I was recommending books to a friend and decided to create a quick list for y’all as well. (And just so you know, each and every Amazon link in this post is an affiliate link.)
I looooved this one. A college student takes on the job of transcribing a long-lost diary of a young girl accused in the Salem Witch Trials. Very well written.
A woman disappears without a trace and her family has to figure out how to live. I really liked this one though it was unsettling.
This one was really good. Quite a bit of language and some . . . ummmm . . . scenes (if you know what I mean) but totally intriguing. And the language and scenes were purposeful for the story. Which makes a big difference to me.
Weird in the beginning, but once I got used to it I really loved it. It’s the story of the lives of an unlikely family in Germany during World War II.
Slow for me in the beginning, but I ended up really liking it. It deals with depression.
More books that came to mind as I put this together:
I love everything I’ve read by Barbara Kingsolver. I read this one YEARS ago. I’m adding it since at the exact moment when I grabbed the link, it was on sale for 1.99 for the Kindle version. (Amazon prices change all the time so check before you purchase.)
This was the Barbara Kingsolver book I was looking for when I grabbed that last link. It’s one of the rare books I’ve read more than once. Thinking about it still affects me.
Mmmmm. This one was good. Good as in I cried and laughed and just generally loved it.
Please (pretty please?) share your favorite books in the comments!!--Nony
