Weekend Reading – Spooky Brit Lit and Pawpaw Trees

by Tiffany in Book Reviews

for-the-love-of-readingHere is a run down of what this book lover has been reading…

I recently finished two new audio books…

Lost Among the Living – This is a spooky British novel or at least that is the setting. It was only a couple bucks via Audible’s deal of the day and I took a chance. I ended up liking it quite a bit. Essentially it is about a woman widowed in world war two. To make ends meet she becomes a paid companion for her former husband’s wealthy aunt and after some European travel they settle into the family’s estate in the Sussex countryside. That is when she learns more about some mysterious deaths that occurred there only a few years previous and she begins to suspect foul play. She also learns she hadn’t known her beloved husband very well at all. It was pretty suspenseful and kept me listening right to the end!

Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ – I read a hard copy of this book about a year ago and loved it. I loved the audio version even more. Yes, a book about your bowels can be completely fascinating and educational. If you ever wanted to hear the complete case for why your gut is the entire backbone of your immune system, this is it.

Paper books I recently read are as follows:

Pawpaw: In Search of America’s Forgotten Fruit – I heard an interview with this author on one of my favorite podcasts and immediately checked out the book at the library. I have always been curious about pawpaw trees and their fruit that supposedly tastes very tropical (banana crossed with mango). The curious part is that they grow in the upper midwest and eastern part of the US. My state even hosts an annual pawpaw festival. I loved the book and I special ordered two pawpaw trees!

Love the Home You Have: Simple Ways to…Embrace Your Style *Get Organized *Delight in Where You Are – This is a wonderful book written by an author and  home decor blogger who bought quite a few different homes (including a castle with a ballroom) always searching for that perfect home only to find it was a mindset thing.

Now I am on to read Spark Joy the follow up book to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (which I loved).
