What I finished reading:
Counted with the Stars: an EXCELLENT biblical fiction story from the viewpoint of an Egyptian slave during the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt. It was beautifully written, and thought provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed it.’ Book Review here:
Surrendered Hearts: A contemporary Christian romance. I also thoroughly enjoyed this book; well written, with likeable, yet flawed, characters.
Tangled Tales: I DNFED THIS ONE! I’m sorry, I have issues with blatant political undercurrents in YA fiction. It might offend people that I say that, but I don’t apologize. When the story itself revolves around mermaids who literally survive by smoking “C-Weed” and will die if they can’t harvest and smoke the stuff from a “sacred” ground, which is under threat from an otherwordly force… uh, the political message is loud and clear and frankly, extremely annoying.
What I am currently reading:
Let the water hold me down: Written by my former college English Professor. Signed by him and given to me as a birthday gift. I need to ask him if this is based on his life or not….the first few chapters are slow, but it’s picking up. Interesting story.
What I plan to read next:
I have picked up the equivalent of at least one free book a day in the last two weeks, so I’ve been sorting through them to peruse which ones are worth my time. I literally can’t resist free books.
I also picked up this beauty from this little free library at a local park.
(I wish I had taken a picture of the library – it’s one of those tiny ones that looks like a little house with a roof and a wooden/plexi-glass door, with 2 shelves. I was visiting in-laws out of town and forgot to snap a shot of this one at their local park.
Anyway, I have heard great reviews of this story so I’m going to dive in to this one next.
Your turn friends!
