Here we go!
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson / I love going into books with no clue as to what I am going to get. This was one of those books. It's young adult (which I realize I read a lot of, but tends not to be my favorite) and a very quick read. I figured out one of the big plot points early, but it was still twisty and smart and surprising. Fun one.
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson / I didn't love this book, but it was all I had and so I kept reading. Usually I have to convince myself to put books down to turn off the light and fall asleep but this one put me to sleep after just a few pages each night. That's awful, but sadly true. I didn't end up finishing. Only 20 pages to go and I finally realized I could give up. In the past I haven't mentioned the books I don't get through, but I resolved this year I'd share it all. Plus, the reviews on amazon are good so I'm sure many will enjoy this.
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion / I adored this. The main character was offbeat, charming and I loved the way he thought things through. It was laugh outloud funny and though not realistic somehow still so real. I looked forward to reading this one each night and wish it had taken longer to get through.
The Kings Curse by Phillipa Gregory / these historical novels are my guilty pleasure. I think I've almost read them all? And my only regret is that I didn't wait until they were all out and then read them in time order. I love reading basically the same story (Tudor England) as told from so many (strong female) perspectives.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes / so many folks had recommended this to me and I finally picked it up from the library. Oofta. All the feelings. It's a love story but it's also a "love life" story. And I (obviously) loved that. Highly recommend.
