Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend! I've pre-scheduled this post before my 50k to give myself a few extra days of rest, but I'll be sure to get you up-to-date on how my race went (along with a full recap) ASAP ; )
I FLEW through this book! I had never read anything in Historical Fiction genre before and honestly this one did NOT disappoint! I read this in a week and really felt like this could be my new favorite "guilty pleasure" reading genre. Anyone else ever read anything in Historical Fiction?!?
I immediately connected with the main character, Marty, and could not put this book down. McLain does an excellent job at making the reader feel like they are 'in the story' along with the characters. I felt myself feeling excited when something great happened in Marty's life and also resonating with her when things felt disheveled. I remember having trouble falling asleep at night because the book was just that good (or I felt like I was currently in the 1930's with the characters, which was also pretty fun).
I think that Paula did a great job on researching all the historical events going on throughout the world during this time and weaving the characters into the story. The Paris Wife is her bestselling book. so I've already put an order in to read this one next! Can't wait!
How'd your weekend go?
Last greatest book you read?
Historical fiction- yay or nay?
