A Haven for Book Lovers

I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books

WWW Wednesday #May 31st

This meme is currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words..To take part all you need to do is answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.

when light is like water

 

 

Recently Finished

When Light is Like Water by Molly McCloskey – The writing is beautiful. Unstructured but it still had a flow to it. It felt like Alice (main character) was seated next to me, just talking about her life and I enjoyed listening to her although hers was not a happy story. You can read my full review here.

Star Over Clear Lake

 

Stars Over Clear Lake by Lorretta Ellsworth

For the first time in decades, Lorraine Kindred has returned to the ballroom where she was swept away by the big bands during the 1940s – and by a star-crossed romance. As she takes in the magnificent energy and brassy sounds of her youth, the past comes to life, along with the fateful decision all those years ago that forced her to choose between personal conviction and social expectations, between the two men who had captured her heart. It had been a time of great music and love, but also of war and sacrifice, and now, trying to make peace with her memories, Lorraine must find the courage to face buried secrets. In the process, she will rediscover herself, her passion, and her capacity for resilience.

 

I have been so hooked to this story from the first page. It is beautiful, sad and it is currently what preoccupies my mind. I started reading it yesterday and now, I can’t wait to go home and continue with it. At the same time, I don’t want it to end!

 

Reading Next

big little liesBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beach-side community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.

 

I have heard some good things about this book. I also know that there is a TV series going on. Can’t wait to start reading it.

 

And then………….

southern-girlsSecrets of Southern Girls by Haley Harrigan

Ten years ago, Julie Portland accidentally killed her best friend, Reba. What’s worse is she got away with it. Consumed by guilt, she left the small town of Lawrence Mill, Mississippi, and swore nothing would ever drag her back. Now, raising her daughter and struggling to make ends meet in Manhattan, Julie still can’t forget the ghost of a girl with golden hair and a dangerous secret.

When August, Reba’s first love, begs Julie to come home to find the diary that Reba kept all those years ago, Julie’s past comes creeping back to haunt her. That diary could expose the shameful memories Julie has been running from, but it could also unearth the hidden truths that Reba left buried…and reveal that Julie isn’t the only one who feels responsible for Reba’s death.

I am on the blog tour for this book. It does sound like a promising read so let’s see how it goes.

 

So, what are you reading? Let me know. Happy Reading!

        It’s really good and it was just recently released independently by the author so that’s probably why you haven’t heard of it.
