I'm a little surprised at how many books I was able to get through this month, especially considering the length of some of them. My consumption was due in part to timing of when books were due back to the library and that three books came off hold at the same time. As much as I dislike being cooped up, I cannot stand being cold and so cooped up it is for the winter. I've been stealing time on the weekends to read. Sometimes I hide upstairs in my room and see how long it takes for the girls to seek me out.
1. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
2. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
I loved this book. (Thank you to those who recommended it.) I thought the writing was amazing and the character development was phenomenal. It's a long book but I never ever felt that it dragged. A must read!
3. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Such an amazing book. It was well written with an interesting storyline and I loved the historical aspect to it. The main characters were well developed and you couldn't help but silently cheer them on. Another must read.
4. Revival by Stephen King
As I've previously mentioned, I've been a Stephen King fan for a long time. Unfortunately, this book wasn't one of my favorites. It was a decent read but I didn't feel that the ending was what King wanted it to be. A part of me feels like I know where the author wanted to go but I think it was an impossible feat.
5. Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman
