05 Dec Three Books I Read in Four Days (That You Should Read, Too!)
I love to read, and while I typically choose nonfiction, I just read three fiction books in four days that I want to recommend to you. They’re all super entertaining, and I couldn’t put any of them down. I read them on my Amazon Kindle app (which you can download onto any device for completely free! If you have your phone, then you always have a book to read when you’re waiting somewhere).
- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica. Oh. My. Goodness. If you liked Gone Girl and love thrillers, you’ve got to read this one. I could not put it down! Mia, the main character, returns home from being kidnapped with no memory of what happened and a new identity – she only knows herself as Chloe. Her well-known father, a judge, and her beautiful mother try to uncover what happened to Mia during the months she was gone, and throughout the discovery process, the book moves from one character’s perspective to another and back in forth in time. You will not see what’s coming – this I can promise you!
- The Wonder by Emma Donoghue. (The author of Room, if you’ve read that one, too. Very good but completely different from The Wonder). The Wonder is about a young girl named Anna who seems to have survived for four months with no food. Everyone in her Irish village considers her a wonder, a miracle of God. To prove the miracle Anna is, a committee from her village brings in two women, a nurse and a nun, to watch her around the clock and prove there’s no deceit. The story is told from the perspective of Lib, the nurse, who was trained by Florence Nightingale.I stayed up well past midnight reading this one. I kept believing things I knew I shouldn’t believe, and I kept changing my mind about which characters I could trust. It was a page turner, a book I highly recommend if you need a mental escape that will challenge you.
- The Two Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman. Brothers Mort and Abe own a business together and share a house along with their families. Abe’s family lives upstairs and Mort’s downstairs, and although their wives begin the book as best friends, the years and a secret slowly pull them apart. In the book, you follow the family throughout their lives, and characters you think you know reveal truths you didn’t see coming. I loved this book and was slightly perturbed by the ending (although I understand completely why the author ended it as she did). Again, a great read!
Let me know if you read (or have read) any of these. I’d love to hear your recommendations, too!
