The Girls, by Emma Cline
(Random House, June 2016)
The Nightwalker, by Sebastian Fitzek
(Sphere, January 2016; first published 2011)
I started The Girls back in June or July; don't know why it took me so long to finish, since I actually enjoyed it quite a lot. The Nightwalker was a real page-turner, so I was able to read it a lot faster. Planning to do short reviews of both sometime this week.
I have several books on my list for this week, but first up is...
Cruel Beautiful World, by Caroline Leavitt
(Algonquin Books, October 2016)
... it's another book I started a month or so ago and had to put aside. I've read one other book by Caroline Leavitt and really admire her writing, so I'm looking forward to getting into this one.
So far, I've read 32 books this year. My goal was to read at least 50, and right now that number seems pretty unattainable. But that's OK — my reading goals are always very flexible. But I am hoping November doesn't zoom right by — the way October did. If I could slow things down a bit, I think I might be able to get a little more reading done!
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.
