This week I read Night Driving, which details Addie Zierman's cross-country trip with her two young sons as she runs toward the sun and tries to find God again. Then I read Maisie Dobbs, the first book in a mystery series. I managed to fit in The Snow Child during a weekend where it was supposed to snow. It's really ok with me - I prefer for the snow to stay inside my book instead of waiting to be shoveled!
On the blog, I reviewed The Hours Count and joined up with Top Ten Tuesday to talk about all of the books I hope to read this spring.
Next up for me? I'm going to read The Edge of Lost for She Reads Book Club and then grab Drama High, which I picked up at a library book sale.
What are you reading this week?
I'm not religious or go to church, but my mum does and has heaps of services on this week. She's coming here on Good Friday evening and I had to plan that around the church services she's attending that day. I'm then going to her place on Sunday (she lives in a nearby town) but AFTER church.ReplyDelete
It's nice that she lives close by and you can celebrate Easter together! :)Delete
The Edge of Lost looks intriguing. I hope you enjoy reading this week!ReplyDelete
My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.
Thank you, Majanka! Same to you!!Delete
in my part of the world Easter is very much a religious festival and also a very family oriented Sunday celebrationReplyDelete
That sounds wonderful!Delete
I never grew up celebrating Easter - my family is not religious and my grandparents were Buddhists. And it's not a big thing in Singapore. So to find out how huge it is in the US, was quite something. And what's with all the candy??ReplyDelete
The preschool has an Easter egg hunt on Friday and the kids are excited. Luckily the eggs are only supposed to contain stickers.
I have to confess I have no idea where the candy came from, but my kids sure are not complaining!Delete
I hope your boys have fun at the Easter egg hunt!
The Edge of lost looks like a good read. Hope you enjoy it. Have a great day.ReplyDelete
Thanks Stacey! I hope your week is going well.Delete
So many good ones here! I've been meaning to read Snow Child and start the Maisie Dobbs series for a long time. Can't wait for your review!ReplyDelete
Thanks Evie. Now I just have to find time to write some reviews... :)Delete
Oooo, I remember hearing great things about Drama High when it first came out, but had forgotten about it. Can't wait to see what you think!ReplyDelete
It's an interesting read so far. I'm curious about where it is going to go, because it is such a personal story about this writer's connection to a specific teacher.Delete
I have a copy of Snow Child somewhere. I will eventually get around to reading it. I'm with you on the snow though, especially by March. It needs to stay inside a book.ReplyDelete
Good luck and enjoy Holy Week!
It was a lovely read. I'm glad I finally got to it!Delete
I hope you have a good Holy Week too!
The Snow Child sounds amazing. I just added it to my list. What did you think of it, besides being glad that the snow was there and not in your driveway?ReplyDelete
I liked it quite a bit. It took me a little while to really get hooked, but the author did a wonderful job of melding the starkness of the Alaskan wilderness with the whimsy and magic of fairy tales.Delete
The Edge of Lost looks good. I enjoyed the haunting story of The Snow Child a few years back.ReplyDelete
The Holy Week is very special. Beyond the sorrow, I hope you enjoy the ultimate rejoicing as I will.
Thank you, Martha. I really look forward to this week each year. Happy Easter to you!Delete
Ah The Snow Child! I've always wanted to read that one!ReplyDelete
There was a time a while back when everyone seemed to be reading it. It's kind of nice to read it sans the buzz!Delete
The Snow Child and The Edge of Lost caught my eye - they both seem like my kind of reads. Enjoy your books!ReplyDelete
Thanks Myra! I hope you get the chance to read both books soon.Delete
I am so jealous of Edge of Lost.ReplyDelete
Have a great reading week.
