What I Read This Week: November 22, 2020
Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy
Thriller/Audio book[block rendering halted]
This is my favorite thriller or the year. It’s a juicy domestic drama with a ton of suspense and a huge mystery. I won’t say anything else about the plot because I went in without any expectations and it was a fantastic reading experience. I highly recommend this for readers of thrillers/mysteries.
Friends Without Benefits by Penny Reid
Contemporary romance/series[block rendering halted]
This is book two in the Knitting in the City Series. This could be read as a stand alone, though if you’re reading in order be warned that book 1.5 contains some spoilers to this story. But with that said, it didn’t ruin this reading experience for me at all. This is a sweet, swoony story about two people who’ve known each other since they were kids. They’ve reconnected after ten years without contact. I highly recommend this series for romance readers.
A Writer’s Guide to Persistence by Jordan Rosenfeld
Non-fiction/writing[block rendering halted]
This is an excellent rescourse for an established writer who needs reminders on why they write and how to do it well. The author starts with asking the reader to focus on their “why” and then proceeds through every aspect of writing from time management to revision to critique groups to publishing. Her writing style is positive and encouraging yet firm and honest. I highly recommend it for writings of any level and genre.
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
Historical fiction[block rendering halted]
This is my book club‘s selection for December, so I don’t want to ruin anyone’s reading experience here. For now, I’ll say this is a wonderful story about the lives of a group of friends in New York City in the 1930’s. The writing is excellent. I highly recommend it for readers of historical fiction.
