It would seem I’ve taken a break from all things non-fiction, but I swear it’s only half true. And thank goodness, because that was my biggest, main-est reading resolution for this year: to read more non-fiction. While there’s none of it here, I’ve been slowing eeking my way through several different non-fics, and hopefully I’ll be able to get them in next month!
In the meantime, look! Books!
Honeymoon in Paris: A novella Jojo Moyes
This novella takes you a few years before each of the dual-stories in The Girl You Left Behind, following both Sophie & Edouard’s and Liv & David’s honeymoons in Paris. Quick read, interesting conflicts, enjoyable story. It’s hard for me to tell, having read this second, but I’ve heard others say this is a nice read even without reading Girl You Left Behind first.
The Interestings Meg Wolitzer
Initial draw: that cover. Final conclusion: enjoyable for the most part, but a bit too long and aimless. Still, probably a 3/5 for the times I was really liking it.
One Plus One Jojo Moyes
I mean, I do intend to read books by other authors. (Maybe.)
Ahem. It was geeky and fun and I liked it very much.
Summer Falls and other stories Amelia Williams, Melody Malone, Justin Richards
And then let’s throw in some Doctor Who, because why not? There’s three stories here: one children’s story by “Amelia Williams,” a mystery by and starring “Melody Malone,” and a murder mystery with Madame Vastra, Jenny, and Strax.
I liked the connections — both subtle and not to much — between these stories and the show’s main canon.
& on the docket for next month (provided I finish everything), is: Bird by Bird, Torn, Fight Club, Big Little Lies, and hopefully something else non-fic.
