This morning I finished reading The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez and wow, it was wonderful. I’ll try to do a bit of a recap of it in another post but all I can say is that this will more than likely go on my favorites of the year. Loved it.
So currently I’ve got Felicity by Mary Oliver which is a delight to read. As I’ve mentioned before when I read poetry books I like to take my time and will only read a few poems a day. On the book flap the description of the poetry is that happiness abounds and of Mary Oliver as a delicate chronically of physical landscape. So true. I feel like I can hear the sounds of the crickets that she describes or see the rising sun over a river.
For something totally different I have The Secrets She Keeps by Michael Robotham on audiobook. This has been a good suspenseful story of Megan and Agatha. Both are eagerly expecting the birth of their babies but each woman holds a secret that must be kept hidden. The chapters are told in alternating viewpoints and just as I’m hearing from Meg, I want to know about Agatha and vice versa. I’ve only got about two hours left on this one and all sorts of things are coming out so it’ll be interesting to see what happens.
Finally, I did start a new book The Secret, Book & Scone Society by Ellery Adams. This cozy mystery is the first in a series set in a small town. The main character is a bibliotherapist… One who finds the right book for whatever ails you. I’ve read another book that had the same sort of premise and I didn’t enjoy that one very much but we’ll see how this one turns out. This is the February selection for my mystery book group.
That’s about it. Let me know if you’ve ready any of these and if you were able to catch up on your reading this weekend.
