It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
It has been forever since I’ve made time for this meme! I’m slowly getting my act more together the longer I’m at my new job, so I hope to get back in the groove and see what everyone is reading.
Bending Toward the Sun: A Mother and Daughter Memoir by Leslie Gilbert-Lurie–I am drawn to Holocaust stories, and I liked this one because it started with the Holocaust and followed Rita, the mother, as she dealt with the ramifications throughout her life and Leslie as she learned to deal with the fear and guilt she absorbed from her mom, and even gave a quick glance at the third generation’s feelings of anxiety.
Huck: The Remarkable True Story of How One Lost Puppy Taught a Family–and a Whole Town–About Hope and Happy Endings by Janet Elder–This was a touching little story about the kindness of strangers.
I, Coriander by Sally Gardner–A very good re-telling of Cinderella
Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull is my last review book! It’s off to an interesting start, but I haven’t gotten very far into it yet.
Since I’ve decided not to accept any more books for review, I am relishing the feeling of choosing whatever book I want based on my mood! I don’t know what’s up next, and it feels good! I will say that right now I’m thinking about some historical fiction.
So that’s it for me! What are you reading this week?
