Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

Thank goodness for road trips. The long, boring drive to and from Ames, Iowa afforded me hours of reading time. It is the only way I was able to finish three books this week.


Where the Light Falls by Allison Pataki, Owen Pataki Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward

The Pataki siblings’ novel is dense, almost too much so at times. The story has a tendency to plod, especially in the beginning. Eventually though, it picks up and becomes a decent story about the seedier side of the French Revolution. Interesting stuff.

Jesmyn Ward’s newest novel is a beautifully written story, but I am afraid I struggled to finish it. It took a turn into magical realism that had me scratching my head. The fault lies with me though. Until that point, I was thoroughly immersed in the story.




Fever by Deon Meyer


Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King

This does not appear to be one of Uncle Stevie’s horror novels, but it still makes for a difficult read at times given the blatant misogyny he intersperses throughout the story (for a reason, people, for a reason). It is a different type of horror, if you will.


Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land

So, what are you reading?
