I’ve had one of my best reading months ever! Several books that I had on hold at the library for months suddenly came available, and so I’ve been on a reading roll! This month alone, I’ve read four 4- and 5-star books! Here they are: 1. I just finished Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt. I loved the people and the octopus. Books about people and their relationships are generally my fave. 2. The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel. An excellent WWll book about survival. 3. Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult. Another good people story. Didn’t really need so much about the bees, but I enjoyed the book. 4. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The flower part is what intrigued me to begin with, but I ended up really connecting with the characters and the flowers became secondary. The author did an excellent job of weaving it all together. I also read She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I gave it a 3.5 because it was a long book and by the time I got to the end, I was exhausted. Just too many topics to deal with. What’s your top book so far this year?

I hate it when all my holds become available at the same time! How do I prioritize? And now you’ve given me some books to add to my TBR list.
Haha! That’s the idea! But finding the time . . .
