My February Reads

27424-squareI’m on a Jojo Moyes reading kick at the moment.  I hadn’t heard of this British novelist until about a month ago when a writer friend recommended I read her novel Me Before You (thank you EC Sheedy).  I get lots of reading recommendations. And I have a ‘to be read’ pile that deserves its own zip code. But Me Before You – a layered and thought-provoking love story – sounded interesting. Plus, it was available at the library and in hard cover (and I’m always looking for hard cover books to read on the elliptical) so I picked it up.  I figured I’d read it, in fits and starts, when I went to the gym.

It was a well-intentioned plan. But it failed. I read Me Before You in two days. I read it whenever and wherever I could (once when I was cooking dinner). When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. Or, more specifically, thinking about Louisa and Will.  Me Before You made me laugh. It made me cry. And as soon as I finished, it made me go out and get another Jojo Moyes book.

What I’m reading right now:

At the Gym:

The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes

Beside the Bed:

Stitches by Anne Lamott

In the Tub:

The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
