In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
I enjoyed reading Ware’s The Woman in Cabin Ten, so I’m hoping In a Dark Dark Wood, will be just as pleasant. I like how she builds up the conflict in her books and layers them so the reader isn’t focused completely one the main idea.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
One of my friends stayed up in tell one AM just to finish this book. Our reading tastes are pretty similar(we’ve both read In a Dark Dark Wood and A Dog’s Purpose) so I think I’ll enjoy Big Little Lies as much as she did. I also wanted to read this because it seems to talk about adults older than me that have had kids and have gone through bigger struggles than I have. I think it will help me get a better perspective of life.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
I choose this book because Alexandra writes in what I would call modern writing. Modern writing is when a author switches to a different characters perspective every chapter or so. I think this style is good for the future of writing, it makes it easier for writers to hide things they don’t want the readers to know yet. I think it also makes the story less boring because the author can move the story to whatever action is going on even if one of the characters isn’t involved in it.
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
I choose this book because I wasn’t good at learning Spanish and I want to see what David did to learn French and what it was like to speak it in Paris. It sounds like a beautiful language and I’d like to know a bit more about it.
Difficult Women By Roxane Gay
This book has won plenty of awards -but that’s not what convinced me to put it on this list. I want to read this book because I wanted to see the perspectives that other women have. I might even find that I will go through the same thing.
