I’m linking up with Anne @ Modern Mrs. Darcy again this month to share a mini book review of the books I’ve read in the past month. This month, the list is pretty darn short as I’ve only finished one book. But it was a REALLY good book, so well worth the time spent reading it.
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
I think this was a book that will stay with me for a long time. It was slow going at first and the subject matter often kept me up at night dwelling on the potential fate of various characters. I became very attached to the characters after awhile which made the second half of the book fly in comparison to the first, as I became more and more concerned about how it would all end. Fascinating.
Star Rating: ****
Right now I’m reading another book that is taking awhile to finish, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt – this one is huge at 755 pages on the kindle edition but really good. Unsurprising since it won the Pulitzer Prize. When I finish that I’ll likely pick up either Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, The One by Kiera Cass or Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.
