The Sunday Salon

Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you are all having a great day so far.  I just got back from brunch at Abuelos.  I gorged myself–perfect way to start a Sunday!  I got a lot of reading done this week (yesterday especally!) so I hope to keep up my streak today and get some more reading time in. 

This week I read:

Forever, Judy Blume

Amy and Isabelle, Elizabeth Strout

French Milk, Lucy Knisley

Slam, Nick Hornby

I am currently in the middle of Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher.   Maybe my expectations were too high or maybe the book just hasn’t picked up yet, but I am not sure how I feel about the book so far.

The books I got this week from the libabry are:

Last Night is Twisted River, John Irving

Nana, Emila Zola

Shades of Grey, Jasper Fforde

Brunelleschi’s Dome, Ross King

I also got a review book–Roses, byLeila Meacham–from Hatchette.  I am thinking it will be a great book to take with me to Florence in a few weeks because it is long and (hopefully) captivating. 

Anyone have any input on the above books?–I’d love to hear it!

  1. If 13 Reasons Why isn’t working for you now, it probably won’t. I was hooked from the first moment.

  2. I read French Milk a few months ago as a challenge to myself to read more graphics novels. Not sure I’m converted to the form, but I definitely want to go back to Paris!

    I just finished reading Shades of Grey myself and loved it. Hope you enjoy!

  3. Have I mentioned before that I love your taste in books?

  4. I’m almost halfway through “Amy and Isabelle” myself! Did you like it? Did you read “Olive Kitteridge” also?
