What Are You Reading?

I just started Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue and, while I'm only three chapters in, I'm hooked. 

I've read a handful of books in the last few months, finishing some and giving up on others, but something about the writing style in Mbue's debut novel caught me on page one. 

I don't know much about the story, aside from the online description, but it was enough to pique my interest:

A compulsively readable debut novel about marriage, immigration, class, race, and the trapdoors in the American Dream--the unforgettable story of a young Cameroonian couple making a new life in New York just as the Great Recession upends the economy. 

I can't wait.

What are you reading these days? Have you read this book? What did you think?

  1. Just finished NEW YORK and just started PARIS--both by Edmund Rutherford. Historical Fiction. I think you'd LOVE NEW YORK as it truly tells the history and talks of streets and restaurants and events in our favorite city!
