Last Year I Was Reading is a weekly meme created by Maria over at Reading Maria. This is my first time participating and I’m excited to see what comes up with these posts!
How does one particpate? You take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to? Be sure to link it back to my blog so I can see them!
This year I’m reading…
I actually just finished A Good Marriage and I really enjoyed it! I liked the plot, the pacing, and the twists and turns. It’s a quick read that really kept me turning the pages!
Last year I was reading…
I LOVED this book! It started off as a slow burn, but once I was immersed in the story, I was hooked. It’s one of those books that everyone should read and I think it should be added to high school and college curriculums. It’s a masterpiece and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend that you do!
I can’t really think of a single comparison between these two besides both stories are set in New York. A Good Marriage is a murder mystery/legal thriller and Americanah is literary fiction.
If I were to chose which one is my favorite, there’s no question that it is Americanah! It’s a book that will live on my favorite shelves forever, and as I mentioned above, I think it’s one of those books that everyone should read!
