I finished reading three books this week:
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
A wonderful book about the German occupation of France during WW II, which quickly involves the reader in the lives of quite a cast of characters. At times this book reads like a diary, and I was often remended of Anne Frank, although it is a novel. Nemirovsky however, was writing the book at the same time as she was experiencing the war, and she imbibes the story with griping and vivid scenes full of emotion. A book you have to pay attention to as you read.
Eat, Pray, Love : One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
I finished this and wanted to immediately start reading it again! Loved, loved, loved it. Gilbert is smart, funny, and spiritually aware. I identified with so much of her philosophy, and wished I was her best friend.
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
♥ ♥ ♥
I loved The Secret Life of Bees by the same author, and really wanted to love this book as well but it just wasn't quite as good. Not a bad story, and in some ways compelling, but I kept waiting for something deeper. Still, an okay and very quick read.
