Even though I’ve been busy helping my parents, I’ve stayed on track with my reading. Look! I’m well on my way for my 2014 reading goal:
Here’s what I’ve been reading lately:
This is an amazing book. It takes place both in the present time, and in 1942, in Seattle Washington. It’s about a Chinese boy, and his Japanese friend, during the time that the Japanese were being placed in internment camps around the US. A fascinating subject, and the book is very well written.
This is a short story that introduces the reader to Kate O’Hare, and the con-man she is tracking, Nick Fox. I loved The Heist, and am so glad I read this short story to get me better acquainted. Now I’m REALLY looking forward to The Chase, which comes out February 25th!
I listened to this book when I was driving to and from Minnesota last week. It’s the story of a wedding, one planned in a notebook by a mother dying of cancer. I really enjoyed how Elin Hilderbrand captured how complex a family really is, especially in modern times of divorce and remarriage. An excellent book- one that makes you think, laugh and cry, all at the same time.
And I’m currently reading:
This book was on my list of “books that you need to read before they’re made into movies.” I’m almost done with it, and it is AWESOME. It’s got a very Bonnie and Clyde feel to it, and I can hardly put it down to go to sleep at night.
What are you reading right now?
