What Am I Reading?

Hi guys!
Sorry that I've been slacking a little bit lately when it comes to posting! It's taken me a little while to get back into the swing of things when it comes to my daily life. No matter, I recently started a book that I'm super excited about reading and I thought I would share it with you guys!


The Age of Miracles book cover“It still amazes me how little we really knew. . . . Maybe everything that happened to me and my family had nothing at all to do with the slowing. It’s possible, I guess. But I doubt it. I doubt it very much.”
On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life—the fissures in her parents’ marriage, the loss of old friends, the hopeful anguish of first love, the bizarre behavior of her grandfather who, convinced of a government conspiracy, spends his days obsessively cataloging his possessions. As Julia adjusts to the new normal, the slowing inexorably continues.


Now, I can't really say my thoughts on this book because I'm only on page 19. However, it did come highly recommended to me and the concept sounds fascinating. Well, to me at least.
Anyways, just thought I'd share! I'll be sure to do a book review when I'm finished to let you guys know how I like it! 
Have any book recommendations for me? Let me know!

Have a beautiful day! :)
