Currently Reading: The Lilac Girls: A Novel By Martha Hall Kelly

I love that all of these #blogtemberchallenge prompts somehow fit so well with things I usually write about on my blog... like today! Reading! I've missed doing my currently reading posts! Today's prompt is "Three books! One you just read, one you're currently reading, and one you want to read." So I figured I would just call it another currently reading post since it totally fits into that category :)

A book I've read recently is "Everything, Everything!" by Nicola Yoon. It's about a girl who is basically allergic to the world, but then she falls in love and everything changes! It was a super fast read and a really cute story! I would probably give it a 3/5. It just didn't "wow" me but it was good!

"The Lilac Girls: A Novel" by Martha Hall Kelly is a book that I am currently reading. I'm in a book club of sorts and this is the first book we have read together. I'm a little behind, about 50% of the way through, but it's about different women's stories in World War II. Goodreads describes it by saying: "Inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this powerful debut novel reveals an incredible story of love, redemption, and terrible secrets that were hidden for decades." I'm loving this novel so far and can't wait to see how it ends! It's a little graphic at times but I think that's what makes it so compelling. You just have to know how the story turns out for these different women! I would highly recommend it.

"Big Little Lies" by Lianne Moriarty is a book that I have heard so much about and it's been on my radar for a while now. So many people have talked about this book and raved about it so it is up next on my to-read list. Have any of you read it? What did you think?
