Good Morning everyone! Thank you so much for your comments on my Birth Control post, that was some great information!!
Now since I’m not working, and I’m somewhat of a workaholic, I am going a bit stir crazy. Thankfully, Chilliwack has one of the best libraries I have ever been to! There has been lots of reading going on here, so I thought I would recap some of my latest reads for you.
The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls
This was a re-read for me, and I would read it again. It is a touching memoir about life in an incredibly poor, transient family, and the struggles she faces as a successful adult dealing with her past and her parents. An amazing read that I would recommend to everyone! I don’t want to give anything away, so that’s about as much as I can say, I hope you are convinced anyways.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult
I love Jodi Picoult, I really really do. This book was about a teenager with Asberger’s an a deep fascination for forensic science. This gets him into trouble when he is a suspect in a murder case. I couldn’t put this book down (I read it in two days), and was a bit disappointed by the ending. It was fairly inconclusive, and some story line seemed to just not really go anywhere. That being said, if you are a Jodi Picoult fan, it’s still worth the read.
Beautiful Children by Charles Bock
This book was…..weird. It had a million story lines going on at once (most centered around street kids) and it was difficult to follow how they all tied in. Again, I found the ending inconclusive, and some of the language vulgar for no apparent reason. It was interesting enough for me to finish, but this is not a book I recommend or would read again.
So what am I reading now? A little Chick Lit of course…..
Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
I’m sure this will keep me entertained!
