Quick Lit April 2015
Time for the monthly collection of quick reviews of what I’ve been reading lately. As always linking up with Modern Mrs Darcy.
The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve: A story in three parts- told in reverse order, of first love, separation, hope and redemption. The Last Time They Met also turned out to be much more serious than I’d first expected, and the ending took me by surprise (won’t give it away though).
Yorkshire Terriers (Everything You Need to Know About. . .) by Cheryl Smith: Excellent overview of the Yorkshire Terrier from the history of the breed, choosing the right puppy, training, grooming etc.
A Day in the Life of a Minimalist by Joshua Fields Millburn (currently $1.45 on Kindle): Delightful collection of essays on minimalism and what it means to lead a meaningful life.
The Perfect Puppy : How to Raise a Well-Behaved Dog by Gwen Bailey: Great overview on how to properly house train, socialize and bring up a puppy.
Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh (currently $5.84 on Kindle): Fascinating insights into the history of Zappos and the creation of a very unique company culture. What happens when you empower your employees and make it your mission to delight your customers?
The Other Side of the Story by Marian Keyes: The stories of three different women intertwine in charming, humorous ways. Enjoyable, but not Keyes best (I’d start with This Charming Man, or the Walsh’ Family Series (can be read on their own), my favourite being Anybody Out There?).
What have you been reading lately?
As always I invite you to find me and connect with me on Goodreads.
