The last book I truly loved was All The Light You Cannot See.January 2, 2018 at 7:43 am #734736
I caught up on reading over the break, I am currently working on the 4th book of the Outlander series. The TV show is based on these books of the same name. It is historical sci-fi fiction. A woman in the 1940’s after WW2 gets transported 200 years in the past in Scotland through a rock circle, and ends up being put into a forced marriage, but ends up being a man that becomes the love of her life. However a lot of trial and tribulation due to the upcoming war during that time, and her experiences in the old world. Really fun to read, a fun adventure and the show does a good job of sticking with the main plot points of the books, if you want to watch them first.
Also read Dan Browns Origins, if you like he others books you will like this one.
Hope by Amanda Berry and Gina Dejesus (Non-Fiction), about the three women, but written from the perspective of the two ladies, who were held hostage by Ariel Castro in Cleveland and made an escape in 2012/2013. Not as gory or disturbing as you would think, it does go into some detail about their experiences, but it keeps it to the bare minimum. Interesting insight into the ladies experiences and the captors mental state.January 2, 2018 at 1:25 pm #734777

If you like thrillers, this is awesome.January 18, 2018 at 2:42 pm #736190
I just finished Big Little Lies for a book club I’m in. It was beach reading, definitely, but pretty good, quick and easy. It’s set up as a murder mystery, but not like a scary one which is good because I’m a wimp. I guess there’s an HBO series based on it, but I’ve not seen it because I’m too cheap for pay channels.January 18, 2018 at 2:48 pm #736193
@spaceysteph I did a free trial of HBO Go this month just to watch the series. I thought the book was alright. It was a quick, easy read and I was definitely entertained, but I found it a bit slow-paced for a murder mystery. (I, too, was glad it wasn’t scary but I don’t think there was a single cliffhanger to keep my attention.) Unlike just about everyone else, I didn’t love the show. The way they handled the ending in the show, it makes no sense why one character did what she did.January 18, 2018 at 3:04 pm #736195
I’m re-reading Nancy Drew books right now. I loved the series as a child and I felt nostalgic.
