Things have been hectic around here, but we still found time to enjoy our books this week:
- I finished Great House by Nicole Krauss last week and posted a review.
- I also finished my first audio book of the year, The Novice: A Story of True Love by Thich Nhat Hanh, which is a parable about living a life devoted to the teachings of Buddha. I don't know a lot about Buddhism, but I enjoyed this unique book.
- Now I have started a new audio book, The Power of Six by Pitticus Lore, which I've been looking forward to for months. It's good so far.
- Next I read Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, a sort of novelized prequel to her best-selling memoir, The Glass Castle. I loved this book about Walls' grandmother's life and can't wait to talk to my book group about it on Wednesday.
- Last night, I started Divergent by Veronica Roth - finally! It's an intriguing concept so far.
- My husband, Ken, is reading one of his Christmas gifts from me, In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson. I want to read it when he finishes!
- Jamie, 17, is reading The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness, Book Two in the Chaos Walking trilogy. He says it is even better than the first book.
- Craig, 14 (as of Friday!), is finishing Alibi Junior High by Greg Logsted today.
