Books and Reading

What I’ve Been Reading Recently

The past month I have read a number of unremarkable books. I have read two though that I thoroughly enjoyed.

A novel spin on a classic Cinderella story.

The first book was one that had been on my list for quite a while. The book, Cinder, is a modern retelling of Cinderella with a dystopian element. I found the book to be different enough to still keep my interest and I just grew to love the characters. I could not put this book down and I enjoyed it and look forward to reading the sequel. I did listen to this on audio and really appreciated that part of it. Book Rating: 5/5

I enjoyed this book more than I anticipated.

The second book was also one I listened to on audio. The book, Talking as Fast as I Can, is a memoir by Lauren Graham. I was a huge fan of Gilmore Girls growing up and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This book is read by the author, which makes it wonderful. I found that surprisingly Graham seemed like someone I would actually want to know in real life. I appreciated her point of view and her strengths. I also found her writing to be a good mix of funny and real emotions and I loved reading it. Book Rating: 4/5

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed each book. Both had been on my to be read list for a while and I was glad I took the time to read them. What books are you reading lately? Any suggestions?
