It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
I can't believe that summer is pretty much over. It makes me kind of sad but I've decided that I am going to enjoy this fall instead of worrying about impending snow and ice. Things I like about fall: apple cider, Halloween, Thanksgiving, holiday library programs, and the upcoming fall books I am excited for like The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Oh and an excuse to eat pumpkin pie...
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
I loved this book and even though I'd already watched season two of the show, I enjoyed reading from the various character viewpoints and seeing the differences between the book and the show, most memorably the House of the Undying in Qarth and all the foreshadowing of events that will be taking place in the next book.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
I liked this one even more than The Husband's Secret. It was a page turner and it had a little bit of a mystery too. I liked how there were snippets of the investigation to build suspense between the chapters so you knew something big was coming.
Island of a Thousand Mirrors by Nayomi Munaweera
I thought reading Big Little Lies was an emotional experience until I picked up this book. It is set in Sri Lanka and the United States and examines the war from the perspective of two families on opposite sides.
What I plan to read next:
I have no idea. Maybe something lighthearted and predictable...
