I started reading Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver last week. It’s a YA novel about two sisters whose relationship has drastically changed after a car accident. The novel alternates between the voices of the two sisters and two different time periods so early on in the story I found myself going back to the beginning of each chapter to make sure I had the right person and time frame. I’m about half way through this book.
I’m also reading The Year My Mother Came Back by Alice Eve Cohen. This memoir is about a woman who is going through some major life events and all of a sudden she starts to see her mother, who’s been dead for thirty years. I was looking for a nonfiction book and ended up with this one. I don’t think I necessarily would have picked it up as it deals with health issues and I have a hard time reading about those but I don’t want to put this down now. It’s very readable.
My audiobook is The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner. This case has Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren looking into the disappearance of a young housewife. Who would want to harm this seemingly normal family? The seconds are ticking by and I have no clue what’s going to happen next. This is turning out to be a good one for when I’m on the treadmill. Pretty straightforward plot and has kept my attention.
As I mentioned in my previous post I’m also reading Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. Too early to tell much about this one but I’ll keep you posted.
Of course, I wouldn’t mind adding more books to my current reads. I’m really in the mood for a good nonfiction book (not memoir) so if you have a good one to recommend let me know. And, I feel like I need one of my regular mystery series on hand as well.
How about you, what are you reading?
