I really liked writing the October 2017 reading list and since I’ve moved on to new and exciting material it is only natural that I write one for November as well. So here it goes, my November 2017 reading list.
Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
I read The Husband’s secret, I watched Big Little Lies (seriously, have you seen it? Fantastic mini series!!), so when I saw this got the Goodreads 2016 award for best fiction I naturally had to get it. And Liane does not disappoint. In her typical fashion she drops a hint of what might have gone wrong right at the beginning but doesn’t quite confirm it. Which obviously gets you hooked because you need to know what the problem is. And once you know what the problem is, you obviously need to know, what exactly happened and who’s the culprit.
Boy, I just realised it’s quite hard writing a book review without actually spilling the beans on the story itself.
Let me just say that once again, similarly to The Husband’s secret, the central theme is guilt and what it does to people. How they act and how they change because of it. But this is the only common thread, the stories are completely different so don’t hesitate on picking up this one as well if you’ve read Moriarty’s other books before. I will definitely be reading her next work as well.
Maybe writing monthly reading list posts has inspired me or better say pushed me towards reading more. I have actually finished the last two issues before getting to the November issue in November. And I haven’t finished it yet but December is not out yet either, so my progress is promising!
Let me begin with the cover. Daisy Ridley is astonishing in this picture. If you’ve only ever seen her in Star Wars and don’t really follow the red carpet scene, she’s barely recognisable. But I like both versions of her. And loved her in Episode VII. And very much looking forward to Episode VIII, coming out 13th December! This might be the last thing I go to see in an actual theatre and I will gladly endure sitting for 2 and a half hours almost nine months pregnant.
Hers was also my favourite feature, maybe because I’m just such a fan, but the piece about senator Kirsten Gillibrand was also excellent. Not such a fan of the beauty part this month though. Maybe because I don’t see the appeal in either trampolines or Gigi Hadid. Sorry.
What to expect when You’re expecting – Month 8 by Heidi Murkoff
I’m moving on to Month 8 of What to expect when you’re expecting and once again for a change I am on track with this. For a quick review see October 2017 reading list.
What have you been reading lately? Do you have any suggestion for next month? Do you usually manage to finish a book in one month?
Let me know!
