Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

Not that I ever lost it, but my desire to read has increased these days. I even finished a 400+ page book in a day, which has not happened since we were on vacation. The books I have been reading lately have been stellar, none more so than John Boyne’s newest novel.


FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda House of Shadows by Nicola Cornick

When I finished reading John Boyne’s latest novel, all I could do was bow my head, close my eyes, and sit there for several minutes out of respect and a chance to process the sheer perfection of it.

Kaira Rouda’s novel is one messed-up story, and I loved it.

Nicola Cornick’s historical fiction-esque novel was delightful and atmospheric.  I found myself googling the historical figures who play a part in her story not only to learn more about them but also to confirm whether they were actually real or not. The blend of fiction and fact is seamless, and the story draws you in like a warm blanket.


DID NOT FINISH:

Still going.
