I really loved the three books I read this month. It was a busy month and I had originally hoped to read more, but these reads kept me engaged and happy! Here are the books that occupied my nightstand this month...
The Silent Wife
by A.S.A. Harrison
This one was really interesting. Each chapter is written focusing on either the husband or the wife, and you find both characters are really flawed. The relationship dynamic they have with such limited communication seems crazy, yet in some weird way it works for them. I enjoyed this one and recommend it for a different, lightly suspenseful read.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
by John Boyne
Parker and I actually listened to this as an audiobook on a long drive. It's a quick read and an older book, but if you haven't read it, do it. It's told from the viewpoint of a young German boy during WWII. By the end, our jaws were on the floor. Boyne ended the novel brilliantly and did a good job in using a fictional story to portray real history.
The Husband's Secret
by Liane Moriarty
Liane Moriarty, you are my new favorite author. At first, I wasn't crazy about the number of characters in this novel. There are three main characters all with different story lines, but the way she intertwined them was genius. She reveals the shocking twists and turns of the novel in the epilogue, and you really cannot believe what you are reading. Yall, I cannot recommend this book enough. It's been my favorite book I've read all year.
So that's it! Right now I am reading Babyville by Jane Green and hope to read more of Liane Moriarty's books in the coming weeks as well! What's occupying your nightstand these days?
