These are the books that have graced my kindle in the past couple months. (And one that was a real live hardback.)
Tales from the Yoga Studio by Rain Mitchell. This is the story of the entwined lives of various women who attend a yoga studio together. It was a light, fun (very quick) read. Nothing life changing but I liked it. My rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walters. I think most people in book club loved this. I was meh on it. I would give it 2 stars but it gets a bump to 3 because I liked the Italian setting.
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. For this one, I should say, “finished” lately. Because I started this last year. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it – I really really did – but it just didn’t hook me. I still give it 5 out of 5 stars. Totally fascinating.
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. I got this hardback book for my birthday last September. As a huge Harry Potter fan, I was super excited for it to come out but I was disappointed. It was VERY difficult to get into and I finally gave up after about 120 pages. And from what I’ve heard, it’s not worth plugging through. Bummer.
The Fault in our Stars by John Green. This is a story about teenagers who have cancer so I was expecting it to be devastatingly depressing but it wasn’t. Sad, yes, but also humorous and insightful. It hooked me and I read it in less than a week. 4 out of 5 stars.
Now I’m currently reading Bossypants by Tina Fey. So far, pretty good. I like how she addresses serious issues with humor.
Also reading Inside Out Weight Management by my lovely friend Meg Cline!
What are you reading these days? Any recommendations?
