Books I Read This Week 2018 – 06

 

 

 

 

Well, as expected, a lot of reading this week. I was on a long plane ride and have had a weekend day alone. Those help with the book reading 🙂

Still Life was in and out of my library queue quite a few times before I finally decided to tackle it. It was a well-written mystery.

Everything Here is Beautiful was lovely. Sad but lovely. About sisters and mental illness. 

The Days When Birds Come Back wasn’t that great for me. I just couldn’t get into the story and felt Meh by the time I was done with it.

Call Me By Your Name was one of my very favorite movies of 2017 and as soon as the movie was over, I know I wanted to read it. Reading the book, they were pretty true to it in the movie. I loved it. I love this story.

So You Want to Talk about Race was educational, eye-opening and very worthwhile. 

Advice Not Given was also worthwhile. This one will require thinking and rereading.

I read Gather the Daughters in one sitting. I had also checked this out of the library many many times and finally i decided to read it. It was so good that I gave up on audio and read the book during a 4-hour breakfast on my second day in Sydney. I didn’t get up until it was done. 

The Immortalists was also good. I know this book got mixed reviews but I really liked it.

Grateful for several good books this week!
