I love the idea of this lounge! As an avid reader, I love finding new books, both fiction and nonfiction. One of my New Year's resolutions was to read more and so far I think I've done that. So here's some books I've either started. Some I've finished, I'll put a * by them.
1. American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins * - as last month's Barnes and Noble Book Club pick, I read it so that I could help facilitate it at the store I work at. I also wanted to see what the fuss was about. To my surprise, I found myself enjoying it. The story wasn't as politically charged as I expected and instead was more character focused.
2. Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano * - a book about a plane crash that isn't about a plane crash. This book both makes you cry and lifts your spirit. It's a beautiful story about a tragedy and a community that comes together to support one of their own.
3. Relic by Preston and Child - haven't finished this yet but I think it is a masterfully done mystery. Set in the Museum of Natural History in New York City, I'm curious to see what twists and turns await me in its final pages.
4. Conceal Don't Feel - A Twisted Tale by Jen Calonita - Yes, a vastly different genre than the others but I have a soft spot for Disney and what little I've read so far holds my attention. I'm excited to see what's ahead.
So, what have you read?
