Twitterature: June 2014 Edition

by Stacey

It’s my favorite time of the month.Today is  Twitterature Day, hosted by the lovely Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy. Below are short, Twitter-style, reviews of books that I have read this past month.  12712435Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead. After reading and loving Astonish Me last month, I was anxious to read Maggie Shipstead’s earlier work. It was difficult to believe that the two books were written by the same author. They were so different in topic and tone. That said, I loved them both. 2153405 Still Alice by Lisa Genova. For a person who worries about how forgetful she is becoming, this book, about a Harvard professor with early onset Alzheimer’s, was a great read but a bit scary at the same time. 18143977 All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr is a book that we are going to hear a lot about over the coming months. The story is gripping and the writing is gorgeous. I’m quite sure that I will write a separate review for this one. It was just that good.

    Well, I think this seals the deal. I have seen at least five other folks rave about All the Light We Cannot See. I am bumping it up on the summer reading pile!

  2. I’ve really been striking out in my book choices lately. How lucky that you found three good ones!

    All the Light We Cannot See – I am so there. Putting it on hold right now.

  5. All The Light We Cannot See is on my must-read list. Thanks for the recommendations, Stacey.

    I’m listening to All the Light and having a hard time remembering to keep going back to listen more. I wonder if I should have chosen to read this one instead. I know everyone loves it.
