The Flight Attendant – Chris Bohjalian // I have read one of his books before, and it was the perfect easy reading suspense book. I do have to say that I enjoyed this one better than The Guest Room, and I really enjoyed the characters more.
The Tattoist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris // Oh, this book. I loved how the love story was front and center – and the things you’ll do to keep who you love close to you, and that gut wrenching feeling when you feel like you’ve lost them. I really liked how the concentration camp seemed to take a back seat to the love part – it was definitely an amazing book.
The Sacrifice – Indrajit Garai // (I received a free copy of this book to review). This is a collection of three short stories, all with sacrifice in common. The in first, a farmer sacrifices all for his son, the second, is about a boy who risks his life for his favorite tree, and the third about a grandfather who sacrifices everything for his grandson. I was afraid that the stories would be too similar, but in actuality, each was completely different. Usually short stories are not in my wheelhouse, but I genuinely enjoyed this read.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han // Nadine talked me into reading this one by convincing me it wasn’t really a series – but then I got so into it that I am going to have to read the rest of them. It was such a good-feeling YA book that sucked me back into young love. I can’t wait to come off the wait list for the second one.
Sadie – Courtney Summers // I saw this on a previous SUYB, and it sounded right up my alley, although I can’t remember who recommended it. Half pod cast, half told through the perspective of one of the main characters. The changing up of authors made it a super easy read, and kept it interesting, with a little bit of suspense. So good!
Hunger – Roxane Gay // This book legitimately broke my heart. When I was younger, I was super heavy. And I felt all these things that she describes in this book. Even now, it’s really hard to shake that mind set (I actually have a post drafted where I talk about most of this). I loved this book, and it just makes me wish everyone was nicer to everyone else.
