Spring Reads

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I need your help! I’m craving a great spring read and I’d love to know what book blew your sock off recently? Or maybe there is one you can hardly wait to read? Last month I finished the latest novel by Elizabeth Gilbert entitled The Signature of All Things and just last week I literally devoured in a few late night sittings Mastering the Art of French Eating by Ann Mah. I would highly recommend both for totally different reasons. So now your turn…:) xo

P.S: Shh...reading.
P.P.S: Book buddies and this NYC subway public library.

Have you read 'Wild’ by Cheryl Strayed? It's my recent fave that made me cry, smile and I still think about the story on regular basis.

I am well into reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and it is quickly becoming one of my all-time favourite reads. A true treat to sink your teeth into! Dreamy, smart, captivating, I highly recommend it!

I am currently reading "the girl you left behind" by jojo moynes and i really like it! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

if you haven't read the art of hearing heartbeats, very good. a very different kind of love story i suppose. also, i just reread to kill a mockingbird, and i love it even more now than I did. if that's even possible.

after seeing an interview with adam braun yesterday, i'm hankering to get my hands on his book: the promise of a pencil/how an ordinary person can create extraordinary change

I am jealous that you're able to read so quickly and enjoy so many books :)

Right now I'm reading The Goldfinch. Love it so far!

Merry Meri said...

I just started The Goldfinch and I'm OBSESSED! Can't remember the last time a book gripped me so fast (don't be intimidated by the page count!) I also loved Wonder which is a short and incredibly touching book. Enjoy!

I second Danielle, anything by Haruki Murakami! I loved Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. A Wild Sheep Chase is also great and so is his most recent EPIC tome, 1Q84. That was strictly a bedside read because it was too big and heavy to carry around in my bag.

The Wall, by Marlen Haushofer, and The Elegance of the Hedgehog by French author Muriel Barbery is very well written and a wonderful story (both were made into movies, haven't seen the first one, yet).

Virginia Young said...

I just finished The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. It's up there with one of the best books ever.
I am now reading her first novel, The Secret History, which is also, OMG, so good!!!

I just finished a post about books I'm reading! True Believer by Nicholas Sparks was great and now I can't wait to read his new one, The Longest Ride. I want to pick up Elizabeth Gilbert's newest, how did you like it?

i liked The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. I need to take notes of all the suggestions in the comments.

I love books and getting books recommended from fellow "bookworms" is always good. I have my "go-to" books that I always come back for and read over and over again, one of them is the "Shellseekers" with Rosamunde Pilcher. Another great, great, great read is Jennifer Erin Valent's Catching Fireflies: http://www.jennifervalent.com/cmsdocuments/FirefliesInDecemberSC.pdf
Hearwarming and really well written!

I just finished The Art Forger by B.A. Shapiro.. it was lovely! A spinning fictional tale based off of the true story of the Isabella Gardner Museum art heist that happened in the early '90s and remains unsolved to this day! Highly recommend...

Meri, my friend is reading The Goldfinch right now too and she said exactly the same thing.

If you loved "Mastering the Art" give Anne Willan's biography "One Souffle At A Time" a try or "My Life In France" by Julia Child. Just found you...beautiful blog, btw!

I just finished and highly enjoyed "The Aviator's Wife" by Melanie Benjamin. I also enjoyed the new Bridget Jones Diary "Mad About the Boy". I laughed out loud reading it, but it got mixed reviews. I would recommend it though.
