What are you reading? This is the place to talk about any book, but especially those that are not food/fitness related.
I downloaded the sample of The Husband's Secret after seeing it mentioned. I haven't had time to look at it yet but sometimes I really need an easy enjoyable page-turner. Yesterday, I bought The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin, which is book three in The Passage trilogy. It's about a thousand year vampire apocalypse. Really uplifting. LOL I also got CyberStorm by Mathew Mather about the aftermath of a cyberattack on New York City. I guess I'm on kind of a dark thriller, sci-fi kick.
Yay! Glad you initiated our Happy Eaters' Book Club!
As I mentioned in JC's log, the husband's secret is a quick easy read that kept me entertained throughout. I am currently reading another Liane Moriarty called What Alice Forgot. Next I'm going to read Girl in the Train as I haven't read that yet - a bit slow to that party!
I recently finished What Alice Forgot and it was OK. I think out of all her novels that I read so far, my favorite is Big Little Lies. The Girl on the Train is also a page-turner with themes similar to Gone Girl.
I'm currently reading I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. It's another YA novel but with not-so-YA themes (sex and homosexuality but not full-on) but damn, I'm so in love with the book I can't describe it.
Yay for book clubs! I absolutely love reading (which is helpful since I'm a language and literature teacher)! I'm always drawn towards middle school and YA fiction. Maybe that's why I love teaching reading to middle schoolers? Or maybe I've grown to love it because I teach reading to middle schoolers? (Chicken or egg??) At any rate, I can no longer read "adult" literature. It bores me.
I just finished Salt to the Sea. It's a beautifully written historical fiction novel. It focuses on the ship the Wilhelm Gustloff and the greatest tragedy in maritime history. I had never even heard of the ship, so I found the historical information fascinating! We hear so much about the Titanic and similar stories...and, yet, there is so much unexplored history out there! I'm usually more into sci-fi and fantasy, but I absolutely loved this book! In fact, I enjoyed it so much, that I just started another book by the same author: Between Shades of Gray.
