I'm late getting February's books up on the blog, so I'll just combine February and March together. I'm making pretty good strides towards reading 48 books this year. I've read 9 and have started book 10. I'm tracking on Goodreads.
Commonwealth by Anne Patchett - This is my favorite kind of book... it's just about people's ordinary every day lives. This story follows 2 families and how a chance meeting at the beginning changes everything.
The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert is filled with travel, science, reflection, and love. I read it in a few days because I couldn't put it down.
Someone recommended The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman in a Facebook group. It was available thru my Overdrive app so I downloaded it. It's about the relationship of 3 sisters and the people around them. Loved it!
I read The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood while flying back from Paris earlier this month. I LOVED IT!! I kept seeing it pop up on reading lists and finally sent for it when it was on sale. It's about a friendship between a young boy and a 104-year-old lady. He's obsessed with world records and pushes her to achieve her own. I may have even shed a tear on the last page of this one. So good!
The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin is about reincarnation. A little boy named Tommy dies and is possibly reincarnated as a little boy named Noah. This story is about their journey to find peace for him. It's really interesting and there are examples from real life stories about this phenomenon.
