Recently Read

I’ve been reading up a storm lately after my trip to a local book sale landed 11 books for $11!

My Mom actually shared “Blue Nights” with me since we both so enjoyed “The Year of Magical Thinking.” Neither of us liked this book nearly as much and though it was a short read it wouldn’t be one I necessarily recommend.

The Sharper Your Knife the Less You Cry” was one of my book sale finds and it didn’t disappoint – I’m always up for a good foodie bio! This is a memoir written by a woman studying at Le Cordon Bleu. I enjoyed the story, the writing, and especially the recipes – I would recommend it!

I find Jodi Picoult’s books absorbing and “Nineteen Minutes” was no different. It’s based on a Columbine style shooting and follows a few characters in the small town that all experienced the shooting from a different perspective – definitely makes you think twice and her characters are always interesting – I’d recommend it.

I also recently read “Vanishing Acts.” Again engaging characters and a good story – I found it very absorbing and easy to get into.

Stay tuned – just about to start another book!
