novel novels | april reads


Lately, I’ve been on a book drought.  Nothing has caught my fancy and I’ve been re-reading the Sookie Stackhouse and Mercy Thompson books.  They’re easy and I find them highly entertaining but I’ve been BORED.

Happily, these two books recently came to my attention.  A Little Life is a complex story about four college friends and their trajectory after college.  I started reading it last night and already, I can’t put it down. It’s well written, the characters are interesting and I’m already wondering how it ends.  All signs of an excellent book.

Secrets of a Charmed Life is set in the present and during WWII.  It’s a fascinating read about what happened when two sisters were separated when they  evacuated to the English countryside.  There’s intrigue, confusion and heartbreak.  It’s a great story.
