Blogger Book Club

While I really liked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime I think all the great reviews set my expectations a little high. Good, but not my most favorite book ever. I think maybe I need to steer clear of reading too much about a book before I dive in.

So here are two books I know almost nothing about except they've been recommended by friends and at first glance they look great!

First up, Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. Set in New York City in the 1930s, this sounds like it will be The Great Gatsby meets Gossip Girl. Yes please!

And secondly, The Bungalow by Sarah Jio. This one set in the 1940s in Bora Bora chronicles a love story amidst the war in the Pacific.

I hope you'll join me in checking out these two books. Happy Reading!
