Another month, another Bookworm Wednesday link-up with Katie and Molly! I read some more great ones since last month's post. I'd recommend all of them!
Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple
I've been wanting to read this for a long time. It was different than I thought it would be, but not in a bad way. I guess I didn't know what to expect. I was excited that it was set in Seattle and they kept mentioning all sorts of Seattle places, but I was sad that Bernadette absolutely hates Seattle. Though that didn't ruin the book for me! I liked Bernadette a lot--she was unintentionally funny because she always speaks her mind (and her thoughts are hardly politically correct). I'd say this is worth a read!
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
I pretty much read this every free moment I had for two days until I finished it. I don't know why, but it just sucked me in and I constantly wanted to continue reading. I knew what the book was about before starting it, and I think a lot of people might, so I was surprised to be so into it. I guess the timeline of the book is why I liked it so much. Since I knew what the book was about, I thought it'd be mentioned right away, but it was drawn out. And then once we got there, I was hooked already.
Love Anthony by Lisa Genova
Yes, I loved the other two Lisa Genova books that I read (Still Alice & Left Neglected) so much that I had to read this one too. I found it to be much different than her other books, though. This reminded me of a Liane Moriarty or Jodi Picoult book because it was from two point of views. It was one of those where the two women didn't know each other but eventually their paths crossed. You know the type. I personally like those books, and I like Moriarty, Picoult, and Genova so I loved it! It was sweet at times and heart-wrenching at others.
Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey
I juuust finished this one yesterday morning! I loved it. I realize that doesn't mean much because I say that about every book I read lately. Oops. Anyway, this story is about an old woman with Alzheimer's who is insistent that her friend Elizabeth is missing. But her present story kind of fades in and out and overlaps with a story from when she was a girl. So you're left wondering what's really happening and what's not. I thought that was really interesting and kept me coming back for more.
Now go link up a book-related post, or at least go see what everyone else is reading! I know I want to find some new recommendations to put on hold at the library!
