What Are You Reading?
Here are some books I've been reading
Prayers For Sale, this takes place during the Depression, a time period I find fascinating, those people had some balls and smarts to get through that. It's about an old woman and a young woman who become friends over their love for quilting. Great story telling.
The Guernsey Lieray and Potato Peel Pie Society, Emily and I discovered this at the same and she loaned me her copy. I want to buy my own at some point so I can reread it. I was hesitant to read it because it's written in letter form and I was afraid it would be difficult to become attached to the charactors that way, I was wrong.
Blindsighted, I am reluctant to include this book in a list of recommendations, but here it is. This book is about the search for a violent serial rapist, there are details of the violence, it's gut wrenching. The charactors are flawed and fascinating. This is the first in a series, I haven't geared myself up to read the next one, but I'm still thinking about the people and that's good writing to me.
Outlander, a repeat reading of the series before the next one comes out in September. Time travel, sex, romance, violence, rape, history, love, pissing matches, it's got it all.
How about you?
