There’s nothing having a baby hasn’t made me great at if not being late to EVERYTHING. Better late than never, right?
I had a decent book year this year… looking back, I read 12 more books than last year. I shall try to read even more next year, although I make no promises to myself.
Wayward Pines Trilogy by Blake Crouch
I flew through this series like it was literary crack. It’s not great literature, but it had me at the edge of my seat and gave me nightmares. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, but it was a great read.
I finally read this book and it had me crying great big tear balls. I highly recommend, and it made me want to rewatch the movie. The end makes you want to fist pump.
Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
This is another book that made me immediately go find the movie after reading it. I loved the way this was written. The plot is simple, but the writing and setting are beautiful.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
As much as the third book descends into the realms of chaos and is at times meandering, the first two have a soft spot in my heart. I love the cast of characters and the story.
This was written so lovingly and I learned much about the actors and making of the movie. It was fascinating and sweet.
The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel
This is a sneak peek into next month’s reviews, but I loved this book. I could not put it down, and it was so interesting and disturbing.
These are the books that left me with the most feeling even months after reading them, although I enjoyed many this year. I hope I can catch up next month to share what I’ve been reading, since I missed a month or two.
