Heeeey, y’all, it’s the Weekly Review, back in the house! I finally found my reading groove again over the past week, and how sweet it has been! It was a slow week as far as homeschooling goes, which may explain why I was able to read more; I guess I’ll have to wait to see how things go now that we’re into November and things are fully in motion. We certainly make it to the library a lot more often these days, and (gasp!) I have even read TWO more printed books… It’s gone smoothly so far; I don’t know how things will go when there’s a random hair tucked in between two pages (or something worse). I hope it doesn’t cause a relapse! Anyway, enough about my boring OCD issues. Without further ado, folks, here are my reading adventures for the last week:
- Visitation Street by Ivy Pochoda
- Serena by Ron Rash
- Out of the Easy by Rita Sepetys
- Recalculating by Jennifer Weiner
- Disconnected by Jennifer Weiner
- Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Well, what can I say? Visitation Street blew me away – it was really, really great. Serena was quite intense but once again Ron Rash did a great job of drawing me in and then adding his own special brand of wry justce at the end. Out of the Easy was a wonderful tale; I always love reading about New Orleans (former Louisianian here). Recalculating and Disconnected are both short stories; Jennifer Weiner now apparently releases a new one each Halloween… I’m not sure when that began, but these were both entertaining; I felt a special connection to Disconnected for some reason. Ahhh, Burial Rites by Hanna Kent. Oh, my broken, broken heart. I just finished it last night (actually, more like 4:00 AM) and still have not recovered from the grief. It was a fabulous book. Read it, fo sho.
We have a busy week ahead of us here at the Pathologically Literate Household, so hopefully I’ll be able to fit my reading in. Hope all of y’alls’ week is bright and sunny – and not too cold! Happy Reading!
