Little Fires Everywhere
This is one of those books that I knew that I would enjoy only a few chapters in. It grabbed me and pulled me right in – so much so that I had a hard time putting it down. It’s also a book that’s stayed with me since I read it. From the characters to the story lines, it’s just all so good.
Little Fires Everywhere (affiliate link) by Celeste Ng is also going to be made into a miniseries starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. I follow the author on Twitter and every once in awhile she shares updates on it. I’m really looking forward to watching it once it’s released in March.
Being a huge Little Women fan, I knew that this book had to make my list this month. I’m almost done re-reading it and I can’t wait til I’m done and I can go see the movie in the theater. I’ve heard really good things about it!
I first fell in love with Little Women (affiliate link) in elementary school. I think I first read it in grade 5, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. It doesn’t matter how many times I read it, or what age I am, I end up liking it more and more. It’s one of those classics that you can read a million times and still notice things that you’ve missed before.
I’m about half way through Olive, Again (affiliate link) and I’m so glad I put it on hold. I initially couldn’t remember what it was about when I got the email that it was my turn to read it, but I’ve really been enjoying it. I didn’t realize this before I started reading it, Olive, Again is actually the second of two books. I’m thoroughly enjoying it though, so I don’t think that you have to read the first one before the second one.
The German Midwife
Just like Little Fires Everywhere, The German Midwife is another book that I read awhile ago but has stuck with me. The German Midwife (affiliate link) follows the story of Anke, who is a midwife who’s taken from a concentration camp to care for Eva Braun during her pregnancy. Obviously it isn’t based on real life, but more of a “what if” scenario.
This book was a bit different than the ones that I’m typically drawn to. The Mother-In-Law (affiliate link) is more of a mystery rather than the literature or historical fiction that I usually read.
While I had figured out part of the ending by the time I was done reading, I wasn’t able to guess how it all ended. You gotta love a book that keeps you guessing until the very end.
