Books of 2015 {January}

WILD by Cheryl Strayed

Me: Thumbs Up

Quick Review: I knew nothing of the Pacific Coast Trail until reading this book and I was impressed with her and her story.  I think the piece of this book that I will never forget is the kindness she experienced along the way from strangers.

GRAY MOUNTAIN by John Grisham

Me: Thumbs Up

Quick Review: I have a been a loyalist to Grisham since high school. This book was quick and easy to read and somewhat predictable but I found myself wanting to finish it. The coal company story line was really interesting and made me wonder how much of this “dumping” occurs.

  1. Wild is on my list, as is We Were Liars and The Husband’s Secret. I just finished Amy Poehler’s book Yes Please and Jennifer Weiner’s All fall Down. LOVED them.

  2. Ang says:

    you must read All the Light We Cannot See. Amazing writing and story!

  3. Janelle F. says:

    I also liked Wild! That one was hard for me to put down. In January I read American Wife and The Maze Runner. I am about halfway through Water for Elephants right now.
