Women Talking by Miriam Toews
Wow! Women Talking is exceptional so far! The book is based on a true story about assaults that took place on the women in a Mennonite community. The story is utterly heartbreaking and it is interesting to see how each of the women deal with the trauma of what they all have been through. I am completely blown away by Miriam Toews writing so far, and I have a feeling this will be a book you will see mentioned often on my blog from now on!
The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row by Anthony Ray Hinton
The Sun Does Shine is a non-fiction novel written by Anthony Ray Hinton, who is a black man from Alabama who was on death row for nearly thirty years for a crime he did not commit. I am not far in to this one yet, but it has already made me so angry at the injustice. It is a book a have to read in small doses because I just get so worked up about how corrupt the legal system is. I am also very inspired by Anthony Ray Hinton because he has ever right to be very bitter and angry, but instead he is inspiring. He even started a book club in death row. I am excited to learn more of his story and his release, and I will definitely being watching clips of him on Youtube when I am done!
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
I finally read Sharp Objects! I was not sure that I was ever going to get around to reading this one, but there has been so much hype around the TV show. I want to watch it, but you know I had to actually read the book first. I thought it was well-written and the characters were definitely disturbing, but overall, I found it to be too predictable! I like my thrillers.mysteries to have a few more jaw-dropping moments.
The Victorian and the Romantic by Nell Stevens
I have been loving memoirs this year, and The Victorian and the Romantic sounds perfect for me! I love the book follows two romances, one that took place in the 19th century, and the other that happens in the present day. I have heard some great things about it and I have a feeling I am going to be charmed but it!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada for sending me a copy of Women Talking and The Victorian and the Romantic in exchange for an honest review.

Women Talking sounds really interesting and sounds like a book I would like reading.
It is excellent! Really difficult subject matter but done in an honest and inspiring way!
I’m really looking forward to The Victorian and the Romantic; hope you enjoy it! I haven’t read the novel, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Sharp Objects miniseries. The acting and atmosphere were amazing.
I am really excited for it as well! I will definitely let you know my thoughts on it. I have been hearing such amazing things about the mini series so I am looking forward to it. I definitely think it will translate well on screen!
Hope you enjoy both!
I read Sharp Objects in August too for the tv show. I agree! I really liked it, but it was a little predictable. I didn’t call exactly how it ended, that took me a little by surprise, but I suspected the person the whole time!
If you haven’t read Dark Places by her, I highly suggest that one also!
I wish she had thrown in a few more possible suspects! She is a fantastic writer though!
