7 Books I Could Not Put Down

I have no attention span these days. Part of the problem is that I am multitasking on steroids, rotating with alarming speed between doing my job and parenting and running a house, while also functioning under a steady moderate to high level of anxiety. Not the most conducive circumstances for reading. Yet, reading is what I crave. So it is taking a special group of books to hold my attention now. Here are some of the books from past reading years that I simply could not put down. Maybe they will grab your attention in these remarkable days as well.

In no particular order:

The Stars Are Fire by Anita Shreve (historical fiction, literally the most addictive read ever)

Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes (smart romance)

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (bittersweet, start of a trilogy)

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones (literary fiction about race in modern America)

The Wife Between Us by Sarah Pekkanen and Greer Hendricks (psychological thriller)

Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (juggernaut Southern novel)

The Risen by Ron Rash (brothers with an old secret)

Stay safe and happy reading.
