This Week in Books

August 21, 2019

 

This Week in Books is a weekly round-up hosted by Lipsyy Lost and Found. In this post I look back on a book I've finished, highlight one I am currently reading, and one I will read in the near future. What are you reading these days?
 

 

THEN: I finished Fox 8 by George Saunders this weekend. It's a really quick read, but quite impactful and moving. It's difficult to describe without making it sound silly, but if you have an hour, I don't think you'd regret reading it. You can find my review here.

 

 
NOW: My current read is Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. I know this author is very popular, but I hadn't read anything by him, nor listened to his podcast. This book is not the type I'd usually go for, but I was in the mood for something different and this caught my eye at the library. It's definitely an interesting topic and Gladwell has a style of writing that is chatty, though intelligent, making it read more like a novel, or a collection of stories than a dry account. If you've read any of his other books, which one would you recommend?

 

 

NEXT: I might read The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware next. I've read her other books, but was a little disappointed with the endings in almost all of them, even if the lead up was very engaging. Hoping this one lives up to the good reviews I've been reading!
