reading lately 3.2015

*My heart goes out to all those affected by the tragedies in Paris and Beurit. Praying that God’s peace surrounds the victims’ families.

I’m back with another round up of books I’ve been enjoying lately! Honestly, the fall season has been extra busy for me and my reading slowed down a bit. I’m also doing other relaxing things (such as knitting) to fill my time in the evenings, which is usually when I read.

Let’s get to the list…

The Look of Love – Sara Jio
I’ve read and loved all of her books and this one was just as enjoyable. The main protagonist is given a special gift, one which gives her the ability to see true love. The catch is that she has to identify six different types of love before her 30th birthday or else she’ll face serious consequences. It’s a fun, easy book and ends nicely. 

Dad is Fat – Jim Gaffigan
I listened to this one as an audiobook and boy am I glad! Gaffigan himself reads the book, so it’s extra funny. If you’re a parent, you must listen to/read this book. You will laugh only because everything he talks about is so true. I still quote it almost daily to my husband, months later. 

Big Little Lies – Liane Moriarty
This book follows 3 women, who are all connected to one another in some way. It’s a story of ex husbands, second wives, a single mom and the lies they all tell themselves to survive. I felt like this book was like brushing off spiderwebs while simultaneously trying to find your way out of a maze. 

In the Woods – Tana French
Oh, this was a good one. A bit on the darker side (subject matter) but nonetheless a thrilling suspenseful tale of two detectives trying to solve a crime. I can’t say much more without giving any of it away. 

The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins
It took me a bit to get into this book, but once I did it was hard to put down. The premise of the book revolves around a girl who rides a commuter train everyday, passing by the same couple in their backyard. Someone dies and this girl on the train gets herself involved. It’s an interesting book with a twist at the end – I never could figure out who did it until the end.

Currently reading: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doer

    I loved All the Light We Cannot See! Loved it. Do you like it so far?
    Also, I recently read The Nightingale and really loved that too. Seriously such a beautiful story.
    Currently reading Reconstructing Amelia (and slowly reading Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly). Enjoying both!
