Anyway, I'm currently reading the Paris Wife, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think it does capture the feeling of writers and artists in the '20s, but it is also depressing and a bit frustrating. I love reading a book that leaves you racing to the end, but at the time sad when you reach it, because then the book is over. I'm always thrilled when I find a book like that, but usually read it too quickly. Sometimes, when I find a book I'm pretty sure I'll love (like a new book by a favorite author), I'll leave it on the shelf for a bit, just savoring the time until I get to read it. My husband thinks this is crazy, and usually takes it to mean that I'm not interested in the book after all. (But really it's the opposite.) I can usually cheer myself up with a book, but sometimes, it can take a while to feel happy again after reading something overly depressing or dark. Still, I don't think I'll ever get over that feeling of walking into a room full of books and being excited by the possibilities.
What are you reading? Any good book recommendations?
