Now that I’m back to work part-time, I’m not able to read quite as prolifically as I did while I was on maternity leave. However, I still managed to finish three books in the last month because I started two of them several months before. Here are my quick “twitter-like” reviews:
The Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The coming-of-age story of a young woman who grew up in the foster system and fluently communicates in the Victorian “language of flowers” but lacks all relationship skills. I got really frustrated by the main character, but when I finally finished the book, I was pleasantly surprised with the resolution of the story. #readtotheend #worthit
The Art Forger, B.A. Shapiro. This novel takes you inside the world of working artists, the pursuit of artistic recognition, and the people who are obsessed enough with art to steal it, as told by the artist-turned-forger. #quickfunread #wellresearched
Bread & Wine, Shauna Niequist. This series of essays about friendship, hospitality, and community are so well-written, and the recipes that go with each essay look amazing. This book inspired me to start a new moms group at my church. #sogood #imlatetothisparty #iwanttoeatallthethings
Linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy!
