Over the past few months, I’ve been trying to utilize my local(ish) library more often and make sure I always had a book going. I like to think my habit of reading before bed helps my stress level :-). At any rate, here are some books I’ve read recently(ish) that I would recommend:
The Best Kind of People by Zoe Whittall
I wouldn’t call this a “feel-good” book, but it makes you think and I think the story is told well. The book is told from differing viewpoints of several characters throughout the plot. Some you immediately dislike, as I imagine you’re supposed to, but some you are just rooting so hard for to figure their lives out.
The Sweetness of Forgetting by Kristin Harmel
This is an easier read, but engaging and sweet and nice to have if you’re a right-before-bed reader like me.
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
Historical fiction based on actual testimony from a tattooist in the concentration camps during WWII. A thinking book for sure, but one where hope is overarching.
I’ve also read several books in the Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni. Normally I’m not a huge series reader, but these are pretty good, especially when I get an itch for a suspenseful read. https://www.robertdugonibooks.com/books
I know there aren’t many recommendations here, but many of the books I’ve read in November/December were mainly pass-the-time reads…as I like to think we all have from time to time.
