Reading List

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had a whirlwind trip to Florida this past weekend. While the trip itself wasn't necessarily for pleasure (meetings and such), I did have the pleasure of spending many many hours in the car with a fabulous book. 

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I am a member of a monthly book club. We've been meeting since 2008 (!!!!), and while I don't always read every pick, I love that we are each devoted to giving it the good college try. This month, our pick was All the Light We Cannot See, and I absolutely LOVED it! The historical fiction story takes place in Paris during the Holocaust and alternates points of view between a blind teenage girl and a member of Hitler's Youth. Both teenagers in a tumultuous time, each character fights an inner struggle to maintain his/her true identity in a time in which everyone is expected to blend. The plot ebbs and flows and the sea of characters met on each page draws you further and further into the tale. Oh, and did I mention at the center of it all there is a mystery surrounding a very rare, very large diamond? Quick! Order it. You won't regret it.

Now that I'm back on a reading kick, I have a few other titles I'm looking forward to trying. Find them below!
