Another month, another off-topic bookish post. I’m lucky that even in the busiest of times, I usually manage to find time to read — some of that is thanks to the highly problem-plagued NYC subway system, where I might be stressed about getting late to appointments all the time, but do have plenty of time to read… because what else can I possibly do when my train has stalled for the umpteenth time?
That said, I haven’t had time to continue the Ron Chernow Alexander Hamilton biography much — it’s a nightstand book for me, and I wound up devoting some of that bedtime reading to the book devoted to “Hamilton” the play (pictured above) because I’m still thinking about it two months after seeing it. Oops. But I’m determined to complete the biography soon and I will get around to sharing my thoughts before summer’s over.
I had time for some other non-pictured books as well, so read on…
Three Wishes (by Liane Moriarty) – I put a bunch of Liane Moriarty books on my to-read list recently. After reading “Big Little Lies” last month, I got to this one via a Kindle library loan and I quite enjoyed it. So far I find that Moriarty’s books have a “beach read” quality, while touching on some important themes — this book generally felt like much lighter fare than “Big Little Lies” on some levels, but there were a few dark undercurrents as well. That said, I found myself laughing quite a bit and really enjoyed the triplets at the center of the story. I recommend it if you’re looking for a book you can breeze through….
