I love to read! Good thing since I used to be a librarian. Anyway, I thought I’d share a few recent books that I have enjoyed reading or listening to.

I enjoyed this first one way more than I expected to. It was deeper than a lot of “living with less” books.

This was a thoughtful look at aging. It was a short book that left me thinking.

This book made me laugh out loud at times. I love historical fiction and really loved this book.

I had a book by this author recommended to me, but that one was not available so I tried this one. It kept my attention and I learned some things, as I often do when reading historical fiction. It was a bit dark, covering issues such as immigration in the early part of the 20th century, speak easies in NYC, mob dealings, and Alcatraz.

I definitely recommend The Gown. It takes a look into the world of the unknown women who worked on Queen Elizabeth’s wedding dress.

This one was classed as teen fiction. It was a quick, quirky read and I enjoyed it.

I think I may have mentioned this one before, but it’s worth recommending again!

I was drawn to this last one because of the handwork/embroidery theme. I think as quilters, the concept of pouring your hopes and dreams into your handwork is very relatable.

Have you read any good books lately?

Have a great day!
