From my Cincinnati book list, Calling Me Home, is a book I requested from the library while I was waiting for others to come in. It is a predictable, but touching story about an unlikely friendship between two women and their journey to Cincinnati.
Everybody Always by Bob Goff wasn’t even on my 2018 book list, but somehow ended up in my library queue. With the country being so divided right now, we can all become “love in a world full of setbacks and difficult people.”
Memento Park by Mark Sarvas is an interesting read with an ending I never saw coming! In essence, it’s about how a man uncovers secrets about his dad after a lost piece of art is discovered. Sophie didn’t find it as interesting as I did. 🙂
With summer over and fall just around the corner, what better time to suggest a pool/beach read? Ha! But seriously, it took me that long to finish this book. Not because it wasn’t good and not because it was difficult, it’s because I’ve been so darn busy!
American War by Omar El Akkad was another one of my favorite book from my 2018 book list. (Uncommon Type is still my favorite.) Although it’s thick and heavy, it makes for a great airplane read.
I recently finished Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande, a book about medical failures and successes. Spoiler: You’d don’t have to be a surgeon or even in the healthcare industry to enjoy this well-written book.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is a wonderful suspense book with just enough splash of romance to make things interesting. (No, Sophie did not try to eat the cover.)
I recently listened to the audio book of The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying. What’s with me and all these dark books and tv shows?
Are you watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu?
Another book from my 2018 book list, I Can’t Make This Up by Kevin Hart, was a hilarious book full of Kevin’s life lessons.
