Twitterature: August 2014 Edition

by Stacey

It’s my favorite time of the month. Twitterature, hosted by the lovely Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy. Below are short, Twitter-style reviews of books I have read this past month.

Euphoria by Lily King. Euphoria is my favorite read of the summer. If you enjoyed State of Wonder, there are similarities. I enjoyed this one so much that I am now anxious to read Lily King’s others. 

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski. This is the first time I have disagreed with Sally, my favorite children’s book seller and owner of the Curious Reader. She told me she wasn’t able to put down The Winner’s Curse. I was. Anyone else read this?


This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Trooper. I loved  this book. Good story, funny and well written. This is a hard combo and Trooper did it. I recommended it to Nicky, my favorite reader friend and wasn’t at all surprised to learn that This is Where I Leave You is in her re-reading rotation.


The Husband’s Secret by  Liane Moriarty. The Husband’s Secret has been on my to-be-read pile for ages and I am so glad I finally got to it. It was the perfect beach read and even more fun because the husband’s secret was not at all what I had expected it to be.


Missing  You by Harlan Coben. I always read Harlan Coben’s latest so I was anxious to read Missing You. This was definitely not my favorite but still a fun beach read.

    Thanks for the reviews. Only one I have read is The Husband’s Secret and yes it was a fun read. Moriarty has a new one out that I also want to read. The cover of Euphoria is gorgeous.

      The new Moriarty is so funny- I am reading it right now. If you have elementary aged children, it is a must read!

    I LOVED This is Where I Leave You. Cannot wait for the movie. Tina Fey!

  4. Kristen says:

    Thanks for the great rec’s, Stacey. I’ve had my eye on one of them for a bit, and the one that you and Nina like sounds really good too.
