There is only one thing better than getting wrapped up in a good book. Getting wrapped up in two good books in a row. It’s so rare. Usually, I find a book I love and the next few books I’m disappointed in and find myself yearning for another chapter of the previous story. At the end of 2011 I made a list of my favorite books of the year, as well as a “to-read” list (found here), and so far we’re off to a great start!
I just finished Rules of Civility by Amor Towles (thanks Miranda from In Sweet Treatment for the recommendation) and What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty and absolutely loved both. They are very different reads, so I’ve included descriptions of both below. Happy Reading and, as always, let us know if there is a book you’ve recently read and loved.
Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she’s actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.
A knock on the head has misplaced ten years of her life, and Alice isn’t sure she likes who she’s become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.
