Good Morning Everyone – How’s your Sunday so far?
I’ve been enjoying a weekend with some very good books so I thought I’d share some snippets on those.
I finally started Coraline by Neil Gaiman. I know, I’m the last person to read this right? What can I say, this book has all the elements of a very creepy tale… A mysterious locked door, sinister corridors and big, black buttons. I know I could easily finish this story in one sitting but I am savoring it and taking my time. Plus, I don’t think I want to read this at night. ha. This book counts as one of my R.I.P. III Challenge reads.
My other read is perhaps not as scary but it’s very dark, Out by Natsuo Kirino. This is actually my second attempt at this novel and I think this time I’ll stick with it. Fantastic character development is keeping me intrigued about these four Japanese women embroiled in a violent crime and their way out. This book counts as one of Japanese Literature Challenge reads.
I’m almost done with Blue Sky July by Nia Wyn. A moving memoir of a mother who goes against everything the doctors say in order to heal her son after he suffers a brain injury and is diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy.
And, I’m also nearing the end of Brief Gaudy Hour by Margaret Campbell Barnes. This is another fictional account of Anne Boleyn. I wonder how many books there must be about Anne? Either way, I don’t care because she is fascinating and this story manages to keep me on the edge of my seat even if I already know how it ends.
So, what are you reading this Sunday?
