November 2015 Reads

Mt Hood Portland

November absolutely flew by. Somehow I managed to sneak these two books in. Great reads this month.

1. Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
I'm go out on a limb here and say that this is the best book I've read all year. Maybe it was just the timing of it, but Brown brought up a lot of things about fear, vulnerability and shame that I needed to hear right now. This would make a great Christmas gift for friends and family.

2. The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure
Oh look — I read another historical fiction novel about WWII. Surprise, surprise right? This one has been on my list for awhile and I happened to find it a few dollars off on my Kindle one day so I decided to check it out. I hadn't heard much about it so I wasn't expecting much, but I really enjoyed it. It's about an architect in Paris during the German occupation who simultaneously gets design work from the German army and a wealthy benefactor with Jewish friends. I didn't love the ending, but the entire novel, I was glued to the page and found I couldn't read it before bed because it was too suspenseful. Great read.
