One of the things I’ve missed about my blog is being able to document books I’ve read and sharing ideas with all of you. I often get book recommendations from other blogs I read and I have a very long list of books I want to read on Goodreads 😉
I switched from hard copies of books to digital books about two years ago (how else do you read when connected to a breast pump? lol) and I haven’t looked back. I have the Kindle app on both my iPad and iPhone and they sync up when connected to wi-fi. Its awesome!!! I use the Overdrive App to connect to my local library system, so I “borrow” ebooks and have them delivered straight to my devices. It has been life-changing for me as a reader 😉
So what have I read so far this year??
I’ll admit these books were all read before July so I don’t remember every detail of every book. I give myself an F on these reviews!!! LOL
The Rosie Project- Funny, interesting characters. 4 stars
Big Little Lies- Quick, suspenseful read. Tons of characters to keep straight but a fun book. Big twist.
The Husband’s Secret- By the same author above, also quick and suspenseful.
All the Light We Cannot See- Wow!! WWII story that was very beautiful.
The Girl on the Train- Again, very suspenseful. Loved it! Couldn’t put it down
Paper Towns- Young Adult fiction by John Green. I enjoyed it
Looking for Alaska- Young Adult fiction by John Green
Me Before You- Took awhile to get into it but it has the saddest ending of any book I’ve read in a LONG time. Made me cry for hours after I put it down.
The Good Father- A young, single father has to make some tough choices
The Nightengale- Another absolutely amazing book!!! WWII fiction. So good!!
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane- Juvenile fiction. Super fast read, incredible story.
The Storied Life of AJ Firky- Very sweet story
The Language of Flowers- Somewhat of a Romance
The Goldfinch- This is a Pulitzer prize winner. It is incredibly LONG. I almost abandoned it half way through but the premise and plot is incredible. Really cool story but I think it could’ve been shortened by at least 200 pages! lol
I’m always looking to add books to my reading list. What good books have you read so far this year??
