Last week was Spring Break, and I took a break from my Sunday (Evening) Posts. I am pleased to report that during Spring Break and over this week end, I have been able to work in a good bit of reading. Here’s my “progress report.”
The Fortelling by Alice Hoffman (reviewed on this blog this past week)
Second Chance Grill by Christine Nolti, a light, escape-reading romance that will be reviewed soon
Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart, a delightful mystery which kept me turning pages and staying up too late Shout out to Aurora–Yes, I’ve finished it!
Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, a strange, depressing, but truly beautiful book, which counted for my “H” in The Alphabet Challenge
I Thought It Was Just Me (But It Wasn’t) by Brene Brown, a book I have had for a long while on my TBR shelf and which will count as the letter “I” in the challenge
Holes, by Louis Sacher, a YA novel recommended by the clerk at Half Price Books to place in my Little Free Library for males
Books I purchased and can’t wait to start:
McEvan’s The Children Act and John Irving’s Last Night in Twisted River, both books I have heard of or read ABOUT, but haven’t gotten around to reading. Now I have no excuse.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Mudbound, both excellent viewing
The week ahead promises to be full, but filled with a variety of activities: class, of course; a guest lecture for my grandson’s writing class; a haircut, needed very badly; and hopefully some shopping and eating out.
I hope your week coming up is as promising and that it brings on Esster weekend as a fresh start and good spirits for all.
