I really enjoyed all four books this month. They were all completely engaging stories that made me want to read all day long.
1. Two Girls, Fat and Thin by Mary Gaitskill. A story of two women and the path to meeting. It bounces back and forth from past to present and from women to women, but in a coherent manner. Completely engaging and well written, I found myself horrified over the raw emotion of some parts and laughing at the bizarreness of the situations in others. Perhaps not something you want to read on a plane or a beach, but really good.
2. Girls’ Poker Night by Jill A. Davis. Cute, bordering on chick lit, but not that fluffy, its a fun read. This one would be great for the beach or the plane!
3. Ask Again Later by Jill A. Davis. I’m not sure how I read two books by the same author back to back. I blame the accidental trip to goodwill for books a month or so ago. You end up buying a bunch by one author, because, why not? Cute and funny, a fun read.
4. Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. I have no idea how I never read this book before. Even Adam asked how I never had. It was wonderful and I loved every minute of it. If you too somehow missed reading this one, make sure you add it to your list. Its about a elderly man who is reminiscing about his days as a circus vet. Its a wonderful story.
Have you read any good books lately?
