We were gone for seven days on vacation and I managed to finish seven books. I even impressed myself.
No listening while on vacation, but it is month-end close this week so I hope to fly through this one.
So, what are you reading?
Glad to hear Hello Sunshine is a great read. I’m going to check it out. I’m reading Handmaid’s Tale at the moment — sort of comparing it to the TV series. cheers.
I have loved all of Laura Dave’s novels. I’m not a fan of women’s lit, but she seems to be an exception. Hers are much more hard-hitting than other women’s lit novels, and I always love her characters.
I’m curious about Hello Sunshine – it’s such a happy cover! Still trying to decide how much I liked Emma in the Night…
Hello, Sunshine was the first book in ages that I could not stop reading. I started it around 10 PM and finished it around 2 AM-ish. I tried putting it down to sleep, but I kept obsessing over it so just got back up to finish reading.
As for Emma in the Night, I think what I liked most was what she had to say about the mother. I found it hit a bit too close to home for me in some regards, so I was fascinated with how she was going to end that part of the story.
7 books?!! That is so awesome!! I hope you loved every minute of vacation.
What did you think of the Nora Roberts book?
It was a wonderful week. I relaxed and obviously read. I was even ready to come home. I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish.
I liked it. It wasn’t her best, and it was a bit of a slog at times but it was still a decent read.
