The art of racing in the rain. It’s my book club choice for the month and everyone else has loved it so far so I’m feeling the pressure! :-p

I read a lot and love giving recommendations! What kind of books are you into? 

Right now I’m reading “Johnny Got His Gun” by Dalton Trumbo. Just started it so can’t say how it is, but it’s been recommended to me by lots of people. 

Before that I had just finished “Annihilation” by Jeff VanderMeer. It’s the first in a trilogy and I couldn’t explain it to you if I wanted to. Very confusing. Yet still good and interesting. I plan on reading the next in the series soon. 

One of my favorite books I read recently is “Mudbound” by Hillary Jordan. It was fantastic! It’s also being made into a movie right now.

My, my hair and I. 

It’s short stories by women about their hair. Finding it pretty relatable and also really interesting in terms of cultural diversity.

I’m just about to start on The Trespasser, by Tana French. I’d describe her books as literary detective fiction. Really beautifully written, with strong character building.

I’m listening to Cop Town by Karin Slaughter. I read and loved Pretty Girls, and I love this one so far too. I love suspenseful/thriller/crime novels.

I’m also slowly rereading Harry Potter when I can’t fall asleep at night.

I’m currently reading Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy: Four Women Undercover in the Civil War by Karen Abbott. So far, it’s a really interesting book where she weaves the true stories of four women throughout the Civil War.

I just finished reading the Tomorrow series by John Marsden. I really loved all seven books.
