What We're Reading

Both my small friend and I are big bookworms.  #nerdalert, but nothing makes me happier than reading a new book.  Here are some of my latest recommendations. 


Homegoing:  I adored this one, but it is definitely heavy.  My husband often makes fun of me for my emo reads that end with me sniffling in my chair.   It begins with two half sisters in Africa, who never know each other.  One is sold into slavery and is sent to America. The book then follows a member of each of their families for generations, going until present day. 


Truly, Madly, Guilty:  So I absolutely love this author.  Big Little Lies (which is getting made into a TV show on HBO!) and The Husband's Secret, a couple of her past big novels,  are some of my favorite books.  But I didn't love this one.  It was still good, but I kind of wished I just waited until I could check it out of the library.

The Perfect Neighbors:  This one was recommended to me as a book for if you love Big Little Lies (above).  I definitely judged it by it's cover (I know, legendary mistake) because it looked kind of fluffy, but I read it anyway.  And loved it!  It takes awhile to get into, but it totally has the same darkly funny feel as some of Moriaty's books. 

Up Next, aka what is in my Amazon cart right now: 


I've already rounded up some of Ophelia's favorite reads in this post, but here are a few more of her faves.

  1. Ah, thanks for the heads up on Truly Madly Guilty! I loved BLL, but will wait on this one if it's not as good. Def need to read Husband's Secret though!
