Twitterature: September 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.

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. An autobiographical novel written in verse about one of today’s most amazing children’s authors. I borrowed this one from the library and am wishing I owned it because there were many, many underline-able passages. That said, I’m not sure this is book that children will enjoy. I’ll be curious to see what audience embraces it.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. Big Little Lies was my favorite read of the summer. A well written and crafted page turner. If you are the parent of an elementary school aged child, this one is a must read. You will recognize many of the characters.

The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. I am cheating a little bit to put this one my list because I haven’t finished it yet but I have been reading it for so long that it seems like I should be done. While this seems like an anti-recommendation, it really isn’t. While this book is not a page turner for me, it is a great book and well worth the time it is taking me to read it.

    I LOVED The Signature of All Things!  I listened to the audio and it took FOREVER, but I found it fascinating.  I have yet to read one of Liane’s books, this may have to be my first!

    I started listening to Big Little Lies but couldn’t stay with it. I think I’ve read too many of hers in a row and now all the characters are blending together. I will try again later in the year!
