Hey friends! Here we go with another week! The past few days has had a lot of normal, with a fun touch of a chest cold for me, going to a birthday party for BG's buddy, and finally having Christmas with my husband's side of the family. If you need me, I will be trying to figure out where to put these new clothes and toys!
On the blog, I reviewed Bonhoeffer, talked about my experiences with the first few chapters of Alexander Hamilton, and wrote my giant "Best of 2015" post. David reviewed The Map to Everywhere and City of Thirst, which he really loved.
This week, I read When Women Were Birds and Twain's End. I know a lot of people adore the first book, but I didn't find myself in that camp. While I certainly appreciated some of Williams' insight and beautiful phrases, it was too angry and disjointed for me. Twain's End was good historical fiction. Samuel Clemens is one of my favorite writers, so it's fun to imagine a little bit (although I don't think Cullen portrays him in a very flattering light).
Next on my list is The Only Ones, in which Inez survives by being a test subject since she is immune to the disease that has decimated the world. After that, I'm going to give Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic a whirl.
What are you reading this week?
