I liked both of these books.

Next up is The Dutch House, which I've heard great things about!
I am about 1/3 of the way through The Dutch House by Ann Patchett and am liking it. I found it really slow in the beginning and kept falling asleep. Full disclosure: I attempted reading after long days of hiking during my vacation so I was really tired! I took advantage of the time without wifi on the trip home to really put some effort into reading it. I am looking forward to picking it up again after I catch up with post-vacation chores.

Thanks to Paine and DD546 for the Very Valentine mention -- I am listening to it as I commute and do chores and it's very fun. I'm taking a creative writing class and it's helping me notice all of the metaphors and similes this author uses. And I want to steal half of them.

I'm reading it for a book group. Based on what I've read so far, I think the discussion is going to be interesting!
