Remember in school, as vacation approached, how the teacher would hand out a list of reading to be completed in preparation for the following year? Most kids groaned and grumbled, but for a bookworm like me, summer was a time to shine! By July 4 I'd have devoured the books question and moved onto a must-read compendium of my own making. And although my book-a-day habit is long behind me, I still make an effort to read regularly—so I'm stockpiling titles on my Kindle for the coming months.
My most recent literary binge began with The Good Luck of Right Now, a touching and hilarious narrative by the author of The Silver Lining's Playbook. Then, thanks to author Gillian Flynn's evocative yet accessible writing style, I plowed through the much-buzzed-about suspense thriller Gone Girl. I've been told that Flynn's previous release Sharp Objects is even better, but it will have to wait until I finish The Light Between Oceans, an engaging family tale set in Australia in the 1920's. Also on my list? Unworthy: How to Stop Hating Yourself, because I can't resist a self-improvement project! Tell me, what have you read and loved lately? I'd appreciate your recommendations!
