Anne, at Modern Mrs. Darcy, hosts a wonderful monthly reading round up called Twitterature. In this link up, writers are asked to create short, Twitter-style reviews of their recent reads. What a fun and easy way to learn what people are loving and in some cases, leaving.
And on a related note, I am finally beginning to really use Goodreads and would love to find more friends to follow. If you use Goodreads, please leave me a comment so I can read some of what you are loving.
Here are a few of my most recent reads, Twitter style…
The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes: A man looking back on a teen age relationship finds it was even more confusing than he first thought.
A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff: A newly released middle grade novel about magic and special talents that I really wanted to like but didn’t.
Wave by Sonali Deranivagala: If you can get through the first few chapters, this memoir of unbelievable tragedy is more than worth the initial pain of reading it.
