September was a pretty good reading month for me! I was able to check a few books off my reading list, which is always a good thing.
The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand. This was my 3rd Elin book and it has been my favorite out of all I have read thus far. It's about two best friends and the craziness that is their life, including kids, marriage problems, money problems...the list could go on. I think Chelsea said it best that this book covers some heavy topics, yet still feels like a light read. I would definitely say to read this!
The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand. This book is about a woman who seemingly has the perfect life, but in reality, things aren't quite so perfect. Again with the marriage issues, family issues with her daughter and her fiance and work problems. I had a SUPER hard time getting into this book, but I absolutely loved the end. It was very unexpected and sad, but I really did enjoy it. I would suggest reading this if you are willing to give it a little time to pick up.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. I heard so many good things about this book and they did not disappoint. A book about a mother's want to have a child, and her husband's guilt over the situation. I was expected to cry a bit more than I did, but definitely have the tissues at the end. It also was recently made into a movie, which I heard was excellent as well. A great read!
No String Attached by Kate Angell. I totally judged a book by its cover with this one. It seemed like it would be an easy read, and it was just that. The main character is a bit peculiar, but in a very interesting way. I enjoyed this book, and thought it was a good one after the previous book, which was a bit heavier.
The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. I have read about others reading this for awhile now, so I made sure to request it from the library. I thought it was just ok. The characters were a bit annoying to me - just kind of whiney. I did like the book throughout, but then I thought the ending was very anti-climatic. Just not my favorite. If it sounds interesting to you, then I would suggest reading it, but if you are indifferent, I wouldn't necessarily waste your time.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Another book I discovered via blogs. This book gives 4 different perspectives on World War II. I have to admit, the beginning was a bit slow for me. I kept getting the characters mixed up. It picked up for me throughout and another book that I really, really enjoyed the end. It was not as I expected at all. The book also spotlights a major ship sinking that I had never even heard of. A really good book, especially if you like historical fiction.
My reading list is ever growing - any recommendations to add?
Linking up with Steph and Whitney.
