Goodreads Monday #1

So whilst flicking through the reader I have come across a nifty little meme to get involved with. Goodreads Monday and it is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

The book I’d love to get around to reading soon is. . .

(Drum roll please!)

Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste NG

This book has been on my Goodreads TBR list for the longest as I popped it on my list on my first ever time using Goodreads. God only knows how I didn’t discover it until January 2018 but that’s another story and I couldn’t live without it now!

Book Blurb

From Amazon: Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned the house down. 

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is meticulously planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colours of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother- who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenage daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than just tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past, and a disregard for the rules that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town – and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at an unexpected and devastating cost…

Have you read this book already? What did you think? Is it one that I must, just must, move to the top of my list?

I look forward to hearing your opinions.

Happy reading -ox
