I saw this link up this morning and was so excited I had to hurry and put a post together so I could join in the fun! I can't wait to see what you all are reading and hopefully get some suggestions to add to my own reading list!
First, let me tell you about the last 2 books I read.
I most recently finished What Alice Forgot. I received this book through a book swap and finally got around to reading it. I LOVED IT! I can't believe I waited so long to read it. This book kept me thinking for quite a while...what would my life be life if I woke up as my 29 year old self? What would I do differently? I think many of us would like the chance for a do-over in our lives. Alice gets that chance.
Prior to reading Alice, I FINALLY read A Man Called Ove. I adore Fredrik Backman's books and had already read My Grandmother asked me to tell you she's sorry and Brit-Marie Was Here. I think Ove is my favorite book yet! It's charming, funny, sweet, sad, and uplifting all in one!
Now let's talk about what's on my TO-READ list!
Fredrik Backman recently released a novella, And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer. As Backman states in his letter to the reader at the beginning of the book, "This is a story about memories and about letting go. It's a love letter and a slow farewell between a man and his grandson, and between a dad and his boy.
Honestly, I originally stayed away from this book because I felt it was just too depressing for me to read. But the more reviews I see, I know I just can't pass it up (even if I am crying for the next week)!
Next on my list are 2 Liane Moriarty books- The Husband's Secret and Truly Madly Guilty. Since I enjoyed Alice so much, I thought I would give some of the author's other books a try!
So what will YOU be reading this year??
