Happy Monday! Did you read anything fun this weekend? I made some great progress on Little Women and now only have about 100 pages to go! Today’s post is for anyone who loves to get lost in a good book. I especially love to settle in with an engaging read on the weekends, when the weather is bad, when the weather is nice and you can open a window…actually, pretty much anytime!
Today I’m sharing five books with you that I found incredibly difficult to put down. They’re so enticing, you’ll read them in just a few sittings and find yourself constantly thinking about the storyline and what the characters will do next. Let’s get right to these recommendations so you can choose your next great read for this weekend!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
If you haven’t read Big Little Lies by now, this should be your very next read. This book beautifully weaves several storylines following a group of women and mothers, the choices they must live with, and the lies they tell. Plus, there’s been a murder! I also highly recommend the HBO series, but please read the book first. And don’t be fooled by the long page count. You’ll read this in an afternoon.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cinder is the first book in Meyer’s YA fantasy Lunar Chronicles series that is, broadly, a retelling of some classic fairy tales. Cinder is a fantastic start to this series and begins as a modern/futuristic retelling of Cinderella. This book is funny, smart, high energy, and enthralling. If you read this one, you’ll definitely want to continue with the series!
A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean
This is the first book in MacLean’s Rules of Scoundrels series. It’s a super quick read that will have you laughing, blushing, and practically inhaling the story and these characters. The characters in this book appear through the rest of the series, and I promise you’ll fall hard for this duo as they move from friends to lovers. I previously reviewed this book and you can read my review here.
See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt
This book is a reimagining of what happened to the infamous Borden family. If you don’t know, Lizzie Borden was arrested, tried, and exonerated for the brutal axe murders of her father and stepmother. Talk about an unputdownable read! By shifting points of view, this book will have you on your toes and eager to learn more about this unsolved mystery. I previously reviewed this book and you can read my review here.
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Last but not least, we have another mystery recommendation! This book came out earlier this year and has remained popular. Inspired by Hitchcock films, this story will devour you. Page after page will leave you wondering who to trust and questioning what’s actually going on. I read the whole thing in one day because I couldn’t put it down! I previously reviewed this book and you can read my review here.
That’s it for today! Have you read any of these books? What page turner would you recommend?
