I'm curious to know your opinion on this after you read it. It wasn't as thrilling as I thought it was going to be but I feel like I'm in the minority.

The most recent book I read was the last Harry Potter book (Deathly Hallows).

Last night I finished In The Unlikely Event ( Judy Blume) which was a pretty fast read for me because I really enjoyed it. Very interesting and captured the era with so many embellishments. (It mostly took place in the early 50's which is before my time somewhat...).
Next up will be The Zookeeper's Wife. All of a sudden all my kindle requests from the library are coming available. I also got word that one of the Little House -- Little Town on the Prairie books is available. So busy!

It is different than her usual and I would give it a try if I was you. The only thing that is the same are the "uncannys." Many of NR's books have magical creatures in them and the fight between the light and dark sides. "But" this one is he first apocalyptic.

I think you would enjoy it.

That kind of thing can put me off a book so I hope it was an anomaly.
I loved learning the meanings behind the flowers.

For no particular reason, I'm giving up on The Language of Flowers. It's just not for me, at least right now. Back to the nightstand to try something else.

I read that one a few years ago and while still under the influence of a book buzz, gave it high praise. Dawn took my recommendation and after reading it said "Bleck" (though she said it with clever, smart words). Never again did I review a book until the book buzz wore off and I could more fairly evaluate it!

I finished The Dry by Jane Harper and liked it so much that I went on to read Force of Nature, by the same author and liked this one even better than the first.

I’m now reading A Civil WarCaptain and His Lady by Gene Barr. It is a compilation of letters written back and forth between the Captain and his love. These are actual letters and it’s amazing that they survived the war as most young men burned the letters that they received from home. I just started it and so far it reads more like a history book so not very exciting. I’m anxious to get to the actual letters.

I’m also reading in Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. It’s very interesting but a book that I have to read in bits and pieces.

I have The Dry already waiting on my bookshelf. Now I'm more curious than ever
It's very rare for me that the second book is even better than the first. Good to hear that.
