July, July by Tim O'Brien

What a great gossipy book! July, July is the first book I'd read of Tim O'Brien's. 

If you didn't know better you would think this was written by a woman! It's full of feelings and thoughts and gossip about a group of college friends who graduated together in 1969.

I liked how this book alternated between a July when one of them was severely injured in VietNam and the July thirty years later when they met for a reunion. The characters are all likable and annoying and real.

The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

Have you read Elizabeth Gilbert's new novel The Signature of All Things? No? Well, lucky you. You have it to look forward to!

This epic tale of Alma Whittaker, moss curator, is mostly set in the 1800s and follows Alma and her parents before her through their extraordinary lives.

Though this novel is nearly 500 pages long, I didn't want it to end.
