Twitterature: August Edition
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. A story of a love affair of sorts. Best book I have read in a long, long time. There is so much to think about and talk about after reading this book. Make sure you have friends reading it at the same time.
Last Letters from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. After reading Me Before You, I felt a need to read something else written by Jojo Moyes. Last Letters was also a great read. Slightly less to think about but still thought provoking.
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story by Donald Miller. What would a movie of your life look like? Turns out this is sort of a scary question to answer. Miller tells the tale of turning his life from hum drum in to something much more exciting.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Before I read Me Before You, this was my favorite book of the year. Two teenagers discover love for the first time.
Be sure to check out lots of other great reviews at Modern Mrs. Darcy today.
Fortunately, the August Break 2013 prompt for today is books. Lucky me!
I just added A Million Miles in a Thousand Years to my Goodreads To Read list. Believe it or not, I actually think about things like this. And yes, it IS a scary question!
Shana- I think you will really enjoy it. Especially if your mind already goes in this direction.
Hi! Jennifer King just insisted I read Me Before You. It’s high up on the list now!
Nina- Do enjoy You Before Me and come back and let me know what you think!!
Eleanor & Park is in this week’s library stack. I’m looking forward to reading it.
Meg- Do let me know what you thought of Eleanor and Park. I thought it was such a great read!
I keep hearing wonderful things about Me Before You. Just added it to my to-read list.
I had exactly the same experience with Eleanor and Park! It was my favorite book of the year for two weeks…until it got ousted by Crossing to Safety. I’m looking forward to Rainbow Rowell’s new release in September!
I can’t wait to read more of Rainbow Rowell’s writing- I do love finding a new author to enjoy!
I love posts about what others are reading. And yes, I completely agree with Me Before You. Best book I’ve read in a long time. I have heard several mentions of Eleanor and Park and think I need to add it to my to-read list. Is it appropriate for teens, too?
Thanks for sharing your recent reads, Stacey!
Yes. Eleanor and Park is actually a young adult book. I read a lot of young adult and middle grade having been a literacy consultant in my ‘prior life.’ There are so many super talented authors for kids these days. I think you have a teenager, right? Depending on maturity level, Eleanor and Park would be a great book.
These all sounds wonderful!
I’m picking up Eleanor and Park tomorrow from the library! I just added both JoJo Moyes books to my list…they sound so good!
