I am so tired. Last week was unbelievably busy, and this weekend was a lost cause for reading.




The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova

I know that this is not going to be as good as The Historian, but I have a soft spot for Ms. Kostova because she wrote what is one of my all-time favorite books.


The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

If ever I needed to re-read this horrifying tale, now is that time.


Long Black Veil by Jennifer Finney Boylan

So, what are you reading?

    I just downloaded The Handmaid’s Tale over the weekend. The book I’m currently reading mentioned it, so I went out to Amazon and found out it was a free Prime book. It sounds like a really difficult read, but one I need to read.

      It is a wonderful book and a bit to prescient for comfort since it was written in the 1980s. Difficult, yes, but completely worth it.

    Is this your first time reading Handmaid or a re-read? I read it for the first time about 2 years ago and loved it…kept forgetting it was written so long ago as I was reading.

      This is a re-read. I felt it was time, and the newly updated audio was enticing.

        I just listened to the original Claire Danes audio and loved it. What was updated for the re-release?

          Margaret Atwood added an extra chapter, and there is an essay at the end. Plus, there is music between the sections that I don’t remember from the original audio version.
