What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Educated by Tara Westover
Educated is a non-fiction novel about a woman whose father was survivalist and as a result, she did not enter a classroom until the age of seventeen. She ends up going to Harvard and Cambridge! I am not far in to it but I have a feeling I am going to love this one. It is already reminding me of Glass Castle which is one of my favourite memoirs.
Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman
I was so excited when Penguin Random House Canada sent this to me that I had to pick it up right away, and then I could not put it down! It very much reminded me of Liane Moriarty’s books! It is about how this neighbourhood is connect and how their lives affect one another. There is a lot of tension and drama, but there is also a lot that I think other people will relate to.
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Sanders
Wow! I have never read a book quite like this one! It is told in such a unique way that takes some getting used to but is ultimately wonderful and effective! I was not expecting to be so moved by this novel. It is an interesting look at grief. I will be thinking about this book for a long time.
The Amateurs by Liz Harmer
This is another book that was sent to me by Penguin Random House Canada and I am really excited about it. First of all, look at that cover! It might be one of my all time favourites. It is also written by a Canadian and as I have mentioned before, I am trying to read more books written by fellow Canadians. It is about time travel and that is all I need to know! The tagline sounds creepy! It is “You are not welcome here… Come back, come back.”
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Other People’s Houses has been around lately! I’m glad you liked it. I’m really considering giving it a try!
It is really addicting. It’s a great book to read if you feel a slump coming on!
I’ll definitely keep that in mind! I’ve been on a reading binge the last couple months. I’m sure a slump is quickly approaching. lol
I’m really looking forward to reading Educated myself. I love how you are comparing it to The Glass Castle, I loved that book! Looking forward to your review!
Thank you! The more I read the more it reminds me of The Class Castle. Both are very inspiring women!
Other People’s Houses sounds really good. I need to check that one out for sure! Same for Educated too. Love the cover for The Amateurs. I hope you enjoy it!
Other People’s Houses is great! One of those books you can’t put down. Educated is so beautifully written. Thank you!
I was eying Other People’s Houses on Goodreads. Is it out yet or is it coming later this year?! 🙂
It came out on April 3rd! I definitely recommend it!
I haven’t read any of these but you make me want to!
Yay! That makes me happy to hear!
I keep looking at Lincoln in the Bardo as I’ve been very tempted by it. Contrary person that I am though it’s all of the great things I keep hearing about it that are putting me off.
I definitely don’t think it is a book for everyone! I would try reading a couple chapters at the bookstore/library to see what you think!
I spied it on Overdrive so I’m gonna borrow from there I think and see how it goes.
I loved Educated, and it brought me back to The Glass Castle as well. Lincoln in the Bardo is a book that I keep hearing about but am avoiding because it sounds so weird ha ha.
I am savouring Educated. It is wonderful! Lincoln in the Bardo is weird but in a good way!!
