While Tanya is basking in the sunshine of St. Maarten, we are still getting snow flurries here in Northern Utah! I think it’s time to head down South for awhile. But in case you’re like me and still stuck with cold weather, here are a few reading suggestions for you. Try something…
Funny and True
A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson
I love Bill Bryson books. They are all informative, interesting, humorous, and entertaining. There is so much knowledge and little tid bits in each of his books that it’s amazing. You’ll learn more in one sitting than you ever did in high school and you’ll enjoy it too!
Strange and Mysterious
The Little Stranger, Sarah Waters
Cold weather days call for a fire, something warm to drink, and something a bit atmospheric to read. It never hurts to throw in some mystery that needs untangling. This book fits the bill.
Quick and Easy
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Rachel Joyce
Harold Fry walks off his front lawn and down the sidewalk leaving his wife behind. He decides, on a whim, that he will keep walking with nothing but the clothes on his back. When his wife comes looking for him, he’s gone. Follow along on Harold’s unlikely pilgrimage.
Historical and Thoughtful
The Kitchen House, Kathleen Grissom
“When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family.” This book will take you through a whirlwind of all the feels.
Romantic and Dreamy
Bel Canto, Ann Patchett
“In an unnamed South American country, a world-renowned soprano sings at a birthday party in honor of a visiting Japanese industrial titan…” Their party is interrupted by a band of terrorists, some no older than teenagers. This book will take you inside the hearts of everyone from hostage to criminal and leave you wondering just who is wrong and who is right.
What’s the weather like where you are? Any signs of spring yet?
