Greetings you all! It’s Tuesday and that means that it should actually be time for Top Ten Tuesday, one of our favorite weekly features. But my Mommy did a Ten Feline Book Titles that made me laugh out loud post a couple of weeks back and it is quite similar to this week’s prompt of Funny Book Titles. Don’t worry, we will go and visit all your funny titles later today!
I have been nudging my Mommy to start a feature where I can simply quince my curiosity. I’m a cat and therefore, I am very inquisitive. Not to such a degree that it might kill me, but one never knows. I always have lots of questions and things that I wonder about and it normally starts with The Sunday Post. But by the next Sunday, we’ve forgotten all about it. Sometimes I am curious about a book that we see featured everywhere, sometimes about a movie or a show and sometimes just about random things that pop up in everyone’s discussions.
We don’t normally have time for all those lovely, long discussion posts, but maybe on this Curious Tuesday feature, we can also lay an egg or two every once in a while. We’ll talk about Easter Eggs and the Easter Bunny next week. Mommy says I need to start this feature with something that is still mostly related to books. That is what we blog about after all. So for today, I am curious about the books that are the most popular at the moment according to you guys here on the blogosphere and social media apps.
In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.
A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.
Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?
In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig’s enchanting new novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.
3. The Push by Ashley Audrain – Blythe Connor is determined that she will be the warm, comforting mother to her new baby Violet that she herself never had.
But in the thick of motherhood’s exhausting early days, Blythe becomes convinced that something is wrong with her daughter–she doesn’t behave like most children do.
Or is it all in Blythe’s head? Her husband, Fox, says she’s imagining things. The more Fox dismisses her fears, the more Blythe begins to question her own sanity, and the more we begin to question what Blythe is telling us about her life as well.
Then their son Sam is born–and with him, Blythe has the blissful connection she’d always imagined with her child. Even Violet seems to love her little brother. But when life as they know it is changed in an instant, the devastating fall-out forces Blythe to face the truth.
The Push is a tour de force you will read in a sitting, an utterly immersive novel that will challenge everything you think you know about motherhood, about what we owe our children, and what it feels like when women are not believed.
