Lowcountry Bookshop by Susan M. Boyer
I normally don’t read a book in a series if I haven’t started from Book One, but I received this ARC (though I think it came out to the public yesterday) from NetGalley and thought I would give it a try. It seemed like a fun plot. However, this is the 7th book in the series and is causing me some issues as a first-time reader of this series. There is really no good introduction to the main character (or for that matter any of the characters), so it can be confusing. Although, I can say that the mystery plot does seem interesting and will help lead me to finish this book quickly.
The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin
I read Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project last year and really enjoyed it. Then I also read Anne Bogel’s Reading People and realized that I was really interested in learning about different personality types. I find books like The Four Tendencies really useful in not just understanding others but understanding yourself. I don’t know…it is nice to feel some justification why I behave the way that I do. It can also assist you in changing on you react to those around you. Watch out everyone…I’m an upholder!
Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami
This book is a June book club read and will be my third Murakami (technically I started 1Q84 as well but didn’t finish it). This is a collection of short stories, which is not a typical genre I read, so I am excited to expand my reading life a bit. This is why I joined book clubs.
Feel free to let me know what you are reading!
I love when book clubs take you out of your comfort zone! You never know when you might find a new favorite genre or style. I haven’t been part of an in-person book club in so long, but your post just reminded me that I really need to find one… Happy reading!
I’ve moved around a lot, and I’ve found that joining a book club is the best way for me meet people with similar interests or at least a reason to get out of the house (besides work). I’ve found some good ones on Meetup.com or local libraries. You should do it. 🙂
I definitely plan to look into it! See what’s happening around where I live.
