I’m happy to say that I’ve had a really good reading week and have been able to do get some writing in, too. The “big” wind storm that was supposed to hit the Northwest on Saturday was a huge help. It never actually materialized, but the weather reports had me and everyone else convinced they we needed to hunker down at home…batten the hatches. All that! I did, and so accomplished much on Saturday. A most fortunate turn of events for me.
Last Week’s Reads:
I know I shouldn’t say this for fear of jinxing myself, but feel like I am on a really good roll with reading. News of the World by Paulette Jiles and The Mothers by Brit Bennett are two very different books, but I thoroughly enjoyed both. News of the World is a finalist for the National Book Award and The Mothers is perhaps the most talked about book of the fall. Reviews for each will be up this week on Novel Visits.
I hadn’t actually planned to read The Red Car by Marcy Dermansky. Having read a little bit about the novel here and there, I was a curious, so I though I’d take a quick look at its sample on Kindle. The sample was short, but more than enough to hook me. I’m also enjoying this very quick kooky story.
Likely to Read Next:
I have loved so many of Alice Hoffman’s novels and am very much looking forward to diving into her latest, Faithful. I always like the magical element to her stories. This book is definitely my next read!
Have a Great Week of Reading!
