Quick Lit May 2015

This month I finished a very long book (An Echo in the Bone), some more fiction as well as a couple of thought-provoking non-fiction books. As always I’m linking up with Modern Mrs Darcy.

an echo in the bone - diana gabaldonAn Echo in the Bone (Outlander) by Diana Gabaldon: The 7th Outlander novel is charming as always, although the series is starting to get a little stale. If you’ve loved the rest, you need to read this one too!

Happier at Home - Gretchen RubinHappier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon Self-Control, and My Other Experiments in Everyday Life by Gretchen Rubin: I loved The Happiness Project
and Happier at Home is full of even more great suggestions and thought-provoking questions to help you think about what would make you happier at home.

Girl With a Pearl Earring - Tracy ChevalierGirl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier: A charming recount of what could be the story of the famous painting – and the book behind the movie.

Apartment-Gardening-eBook-Cover-2nd-Edition-Single-CoverApartment Gardening: A Practical Guide to Growing Vegetables in Small Spaces by Jami Balmet: A very basic introduction to apartment gardening, but does give an okay overview from choosing the right kind of plants for your area, planting the seeds, growing and harvesting to what to do with the harvest.

how_to_live_on_purpose_coverHow to Live Your Life on Purpose: 18 Insights from Women Who Know by Danielle Dowling: Inspirational collection of essays from 18 fantastic women, sharing thought-provoking insights into their lives and businesses.

The Midwife's Confession - Diane ChamberlainThe Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain: I absolutely love Jodi Picoult, and Chamberlain has a very similar style. The Midwife’s Confession is about a huge mistake – and how it affects the lives of so many even years later. Couldn’t put it down.

What have you been reading lately?
As always I invite you to find me and connect with me on Goodreads.


  1. I have Outlander #2 in my stack. I can’t get to it yet! The first book was pretty amazing; I *was* wondering how she could keep that up for so many books. I thought Happier at Home was almost better than the first book, but I loved them both. Have you read Better Than Before yet? The Dowling book sounds like it would be inspiring, and I also enjoyed Pearl Earring when I read it. Thanks for sharing!
