Today I am joining Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy for her monthly reading link-up, Quick Lit.
The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes. I’m cheating a bit because I read this one last month but forgot to write about it. I usually love a cult book or tv show (The Following anyone?) but this one didn’t grip me as much as usual.
The Ruins by Scott Smith. I’ve learned about a lot of different titles thanks to my podcast listening. I hadn’t heard of this back list title before and I’m so glad I did. It was creepy and magical which are two things I don’t really like in a book but I read this one super quickly because it was so good.
Bird Box by Josh Malerman. I am writing about this one in a few weeks at Great New Books so I won’t say too much now other than the fact that I loved, loved, loved it.
Anna and the Swallow Man by Gabriel Savit. Anna and the Swallow Man will not be released until January and I feel really lucky to have read it now. This is a story of love and war and friendship that everyone should read. Children and adults alike.
Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. This has long been a favorite of mine so I was thrilled when it was chosen as the book for a mother-daughter book club that Katherine and I attend. I loved sharing this story with her and I think we will be reading Kate DiCamillo together for a long time now.
My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl. I will be reviewing My Kitchen Year at Great New Books later this week so I won’t really say anything now beyond that it is one of the few cookbooks I have read cover to cover.
