The year has been memorable for many things: personal, professional and global. A few of those things have been great reads.
Euphoria, by Lily King. One of my first reads of the year and still one of the best. Here’s my earlier post: https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/01/17/love-in-the-time-of-malaria-euphoria-by-lily-king/
The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. Page-turning, mind-twisting, fun. https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/01/7/crossing-the-tracks-girl-on-the-train-by-paula-hawkins/
The Danish Girl, by David Ebershoff. I can’t remember ever reading such a compelling book at the exact moment in time the subject of the book was such a global phenomenon. I can’t wait to see the movie. https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/08/04/call-me-lili-the-danish-girl-by-david-ebershoff/
Saint Monkey, by Jacinda Townsend. A perfect mix of jazz, Southern history and coming of age. https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/11/05/growing-up-saint-monkey-by-jacinda-townsend/
The Patron Saint of Ugly, by Marie Manilla. A beautiful, magical journey to the home of a reluctant saint in an Italian village in West Virginia. https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/10/15/holy-reluctance-batman-the-patron-saint-of-ugly-by-marie-manilla/
The Rocks, by Peter Nichols. Actual Italian location, family problems, romance and history. https://daeandwrite.wordpress.com/2015/10/31/falling-the-rocks-by-peter-nichols/
I can’t wait to dig into next year’s reading pile: The Secret Chord, A Little Life, White Teeth, My Brilliant Friend, Mosquitoland, Bringing up the Bodies and Flight Behavior are all waiting.
I hope your 2015 included at least a few great reads too! Happy Reading!
