Books I've read so far in 2017

Also, hey guys! It's been awhile!
  1. 4/5 Another predictably good read from Liane Moriarty. It's not going to compete with Big Little Lies or What Alice Forgot, but still a great, engrossing story.
  2. 4/5- I love personality tests and analysis which is why I can't believe I'd never heard of the enneagram before. This was a really in depth look at all the types, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to be the best version of your type.
  3. 2/5 This was free on Kindle and got me through a road trip where I needed something to read, but it felt a little contrived and shmaltzy to me.
  4. 3/5- This book was, well, interesting. I liked that the story spanned several decades. It was slow at times, but had a few moments worth waiting for.
  5. 5/5- another fantastic WW2 novel. The writing in this was like honey, smooth and sweet and wonderfully surprising. I laughed, I cried, I didn't want it to be over.
  6. 3/5- I didn't quite know what to make of this one. I loved Where'd You Go, and this has a lot of the same witty writing, but the story was just sort of...strange. I don't regret reading it, but it was a little disappointing.
  7. 5/5- First time...I know!! So good, but also depressing. So much has changed, and yet so much remains the same.
  8. 4/5- Before reading this, I had no idea we had work camps in the US for prisoners of WW2. I really enjoyed this story and felt like I got a pretty decent history lesson in the process.
  9. 5/5- The Inspector Gamache series is my go-to when I need something predictably page-turning and entertaining. I read this one while I was sick on vacation 🙄, and it was the one bright spot of being sick on vacation. This one was even more intense than the others and the ending wrecked me.
