Folks, I have FINALLY graduated college! That being said, I finally have more time to read regularly and leisurely!
Here are the books I’m reading for the rest of May!
When Dimple Met Rishi, by Sandhya Menon
I started this YA contemporary about a month ago during the final weeks of Spring semester, and I nearly finished before finals hit, and I got busy. With only about 50 pages left, I expect I will finish this later tonight! It’s a pretty endearing story, and pretty impressive for a debut novel. I also think Menon offers insight into some aspects of Indian culture.
Sense and Sensibility, by Jane Austen
Now that I’m done with school, I have made it my mission to read all of Jane Austen’s novels. I’ve read Pride and Prejudice multiple times and it is by far one of my all-time favorite books. So, I find it pretty crazy that it’s been, up until this month, the only Austen novel I had ever read! I just finished Northanger Abbey and loved it, and I expect I will love this one as well!
The Book Thief, by Markus Zuzak
Ok, I lied. I’m still finishing up an online YA Lit course, and this is the next book I will be reading for the lesson! I believe it is under the lesson on realistic fiction (but I could be wrong).
In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julía Alvarez
I started this book months ago for my Major American Authors class. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish the last portion of the book, so I plan on finishing this one by the end of the month (hopefully). I love Alvarez’s writing, and her stories are always so compelling. (Highly Recommend)
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! If you’ve read any of these books, let me know what you thought of them in the comments below!
