May has been busy and I’m looking forward to more reading time in June. I usually store the books I’ve already read on my bookshelf and put the new ones in a pile next to the kitchen phone. Here’s what’s on top of my pile!
The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin – My mom just finished this one and passed it along to me. Truman Capote was such an interesting person. I want to read this historical novel about him and the movers in high society New York, one of my favorite subjects!
A Long Way Gone – Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ismael Beah – My college son read this at school and when he brought it home this month, it immediately caught my eye. It’s the story of a boy fighter in the Sierra Leone and how he was rescued from this violent life.
The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly – This one’s up next for my Whodunits book club at my library job. Also a popular movie starring Matthew McConaughey. I’m sure I’ll check out the movie after I read the book!
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Swedish author Fredrik Backman – I’m reading this one for my local book club. Backman also wrote the very popular A Man Called Ove and Britt-Marie Was Here. I don’t usually jump on the popular book bandwagon but if I like this one I’ll read A Man Called Ove.
These books will keep me busy! Do you have a bookshelf system? What books are on top of your pile?
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
