I’m linking up again with Anne from Modern Mrs. Darcy to share some short, casual reviews of books that I’ve been reading – i.e. twitter style. My list this month is a little short as I spent most of the past month focusing on one book, though I’ve flitted through several others along the way. Here’s what I’ve read since last month.
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Intense, complicated; fantastic and awful; hopeful and despondent. If you could go back and relive your life again what things would you do differently? It oscillates between being a story about all the ways you can die and all the ways you can survive.

Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter
Jane Porter writes amazing characters and delivers a Christmas Miracle to her main characters in this kindle short story. A holiday love story that requires a suspension of disbelief.

So those are the books I finished – hopefully next month I can tell you about all the books I’ve started to read but haven’t finished yet – Wish You Were Eyre, As You Do, Eleanor & Park, Pride & Prejudice… So little time, so many books!
What have you been reading this month?

[…] No surprise considering what a complex book it was. I talked about this book a little in my twitterature roundup but I felt it was deserving of a more thorough […]
I really enjoyed Life after Life. It wasn’t an easy read, but I thought the concept was really cool and well carried out.
You’ve got some good books in your currently reading pile. 🙂
I have tried Life After Life several times, and I’m struggling with it. I keep putting it down. I’ve heard so many great things about it but I just cannot get into it. What do you think? Worth it to keep trying or should I just give up?
I’m on the fence about what to advise as it took me nearly have the book to feel truly “into it” – was it amazing? Yes, definitely. Does everyone need to read it? Probably not. If it weren’t for my book club, I’m not sure I would have stuck with it but I am glad I read it and did enjoy it in the end. It’s hard to read a book where that much awful stuff is happening to people.
Hmmm. I think I’m not going to give up just yet. I’ll set it aside again for a while and give it one more go when the fancy strikes me. Thanks for the advice!
