Today we commence cooking preparations for Thanksgiving. My husband is in charge of the turkey and I make everything else. I think it’s a fair trade. I’m also looking forward to a long weekend of not cooking (yay leftovers!) so I can curl up on the couch and read. On our Facebook page, I asked some friends to recommend some recent reads they’ve enjoyed. Hopefully one of these will strike your interest!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children & Hollow City by Ransom Riggs. Kate from Kate’s POV recommends these two books. I’ve heard great things about the first book. Kate calls them “peculiar and fabulous” in her review. The Kindle editions for both titles are currently under $5, so a perfect to add them to your reader!
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson. Nioke of Books On the Metro says this incredible book offers a fascinating history and is a page-turner!
As for me, I’m currently reading Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng, a novel about a mixed race Chinese American family living in Ohio in the 1970s. One morning they wake up to discover the oldest and favorite daughter is missing, perhaps dead. I started with the audiobook and was totally sucked in. I’m switching to the ebook because my mind wanders sometimes when I listen to audiobooks. I don’t want to miss anything!
