I recently joined a book club with some friends and here’s a list of books for this winter:
First up: Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris. This is a grouping of 6 short stories, essays? all with a Christmas theme. I am an absolute David Sedaris fan and loved the very first short story (SantaLand Diaries), but haven’t been super impressed with the following two short stories. I have 3 more to go, so the jury is still out.
Next on the list, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This was a 2012 Goodreads choice award winner and has been on my list of suggestions on my Kindle for quite some time. It is about a teenage girl with cancer who is forced by her parents to attend a support group where she meets and falls in love with a 17 year old boy. I have been super busy, but I’m really looking forward to reading this book. I’ll make sure to have the kleenex in hand because I hear it’s gut wrenching.
Third on the list is The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (pseudonym of JK Rowling)
Now, I’ve never read a Harry Potter book, not because that doesn’t interest me, but because I had seen the movies before I read the books and normally when that happens I can’t stay interested in the book. I always love reading the books before the movie, because 9 times out of 10 the books are always better. That said, I’m looking forward to this mystery.
I’ll be back to review these books once I’ve finished each book. If you have any input please feel free to send a comment my way or contact me. I’m always in the market for a good read!
