I'm frustrated that I feel like I haven't read anything lately that I couldn't put down. Sure, I've read some enjoyable books, but none I would gush over to my friends. I suppose, the fact that I am at least reading is a positive in itself, right? Anyway, here are some of the lazy weekend books I've found entertaining recently.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe
Set in the Civil War, this story is about a love so strong it drives a wife to follow her husband to war, disguised as a man, to ensure she can be with and fight along side her husband to make sure he is safe. This book is inspired by real accounts from the letters home of women fighting as men in the war and is a great depiction of the conditions of war and challenges faced by women in the 1860s.
