Each month, I link up with Anne over at Modern Mrs. Darcy to share short reviews of what I’ve been reading. Since one of my December goals was to read one fiction book, I leaned heavily into fiction over the past month. I read some good ones!
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri: Lahiri is a storyteller. Her books don’t unfold simply with plot and circumstances, but with slow, deliberate character development. I may have slightly preferred The Namesake, but enjoyed this one as well. Fun fact: Mindy Kaling named character in The Mindy Project after Jhumpa Lahiri.
The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick: I saw the movie, and heard from several people that the book is well worth reading. I haven’t finished yet, but I agree that it is worth a read. This book has also bolstered my dream of writing something that becomes a movie because it’s not exceptionally well written.
Did you see all the books that we can look forward to on the big screen this year? What have you been reading?
