Well… It’s been a few good reads I got myself last week. Let’s say I want and need to keep myself busy these days. What else to do, anyways?
1. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
Alicia is a famous artist married and deeply in love with the hottest fashion photographer in London, yet on the hottest night of Summer she’s found in their house covered in blood with her husband laying on the floor, shoot in the head. If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers, as me, and didn’t manage to read it yet, this book needs to be moved to the top of your list, immediately.
2. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
The plots of two families with totally different economical backgrounds, lifestyle and values in their life come together to unveil deeply kept secrets and realisations. All of it connected by the friendship of teenagers, which brigs back the memories of your own. Although I found it not logical in few moments (I can’t explain as these will be big spoilers), I would highly recommend it to anyone!
3. Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez
It’s a must have read to any human being on this planet. You don’t have to be feminist, nor even a woman, actually you shouldn’t to grab this book! We all have mothers, sisters, partners and female friends in our life. Which, unfortunately, is not presented properly in most sectors of our lives including these most important – medical, political, social and technological to say at least. It may seem like raw facts and statistics book, but is backed up with the stories from the real life, which makes it more relateble, shocking and heart breaking.
4. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
A novel touching the subject of loneliness and like any others – Kya, known by locals as a Marsh Girl living in a small town in the South Carolina coast. With mother that left unexpectedly one day and father abuser, she’s one by one left by her older siblings. It’s yet another book that awoken the memories of childhood and teenage feels, leaving me way to emotional at the end.
