I am always curious to know what people are reading. As a book lover, I am constantly thinking ahead to what I want to read next. I'm pretty particular about what I read, too. I can't just pick up any book and start it and finish it in a few days. It has to be really good from the first few sentences. And I have authors I love and some I don't.
I am ready to branch out and read some books I might not normally pick up. I do seem to read the same type of book over and over again.
I have two books going, three, if you count the one I started and don't want to pick back up.
On New Year's day, I started reading Feathers From My Nest by Beth Moore. It's an easy and quick read that I've had on my Kindle app for quite some time. It's a memoir, of sorts, from the days of when her girls were younger. It's definitely a book that will be more enjoyable for moms. I love her writing, and through all of it so far (I'm on chapter six or seven), I have laughed out loud. I love to hear her speak, and her writing style is no different.
I also started reading The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks on that same day, because I like to have one non-fiction and one fiction going at the same time. Anyway, the book is not good, at least in my humble opinion. I don't know if it's me that has changed or if it's his writing. His books are all kind of redundant now it seems, and I had a hard time making it through even one chapter.
So last night I bought a book that is on the New York Times best selling list. It's called Big Little Lies, and it's by Liane Moriarty. I bought it as I laid down in bed last night (for $3.99) and just like that, I had breezed through three chapters. I love books like that, so it seems as if this one is off to a good start.
I normally wouldn't buy a book for that price if I'm not sure about it, but I am tired of reading the same kind of books, so I took a chance and thought I would branch out. We'll see how it turns out.
Now it's your turn. What are you reading right now? What do you want to read? Are you a fiction or a non-fiction reader? I'd love to hear recommendations for both. Is there a particular author that you love and read over and over again? Share the love and leave a comment.
Love to all.
