Last Week's Reading and Reviews
- Fetch; Jorey Hurley - 5/5 (library) (March) (pre school)
- Findng Spring; Carin Berger 3.5/5 (library) (March) (preschool)
- Us, David Nicholls 4/5 (eGalley) (March)
- The Invention of Wings; Sue Monk Kidd 4.5/5 (eGalley) (March)
- Last Night I finally finished A Little Life; Hanya Yanagihara - I took this 700 page book very very slow. It's a wonderful, extremely well-written, but heart breaking story. It will be hard to review without giving spoilers, but I'll try to write one this week. PLEASE - take the time to read this book - it is unlike anything that I have ever read in the past. I LOVED it so much, I just began the audio version of the author's debut novel, The People in the Trees.
New Books - The last (2) weeks many new books arrived by mail [grin]. So many of these seem like real winners.
