The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
This book has a tongue-twisting title, but the characters, the issues, and the settings are spot on. They May Not Mean To, But They Do, by Cathleen Schine, is a story about family. About vows, like “until death do you part,” and about the “sandwich” generation, and how they deal with ailing parents, while rearing the younger set.
The pages do not fly by, as each section and narrator bring out some heavy thoughts and show us some interactions that we must pause and consider. I hope to finish it today, though.
Girl on the Run, by Daryl Wood Gerber, was a fast-paced mystery that kept me turning pages. (Click title for my review).
I had read some of the author’s cozy mysteries, so I was eager to see her take on the thriller genre. She did not disappoint.
The Good Daughter, by Alexandra Burt, will not arrive until 2/7/17. I requested it from NetGalley, but haven’t heard anything yet.
I read and enjoyed another book by the author (Remember Mia), so I am eagerly anticipating this book.
Synopsis: From the author of Remember Mia comes the tale of a young woman in search of her past, and the mother who will do anything to keep it hidden…
What if you were the worst crime your mother ever committed?
Dahlia Waller’s childhood memories consist of stuffy cars, seedy motels, and a rootless existence traveling the country with her eccentric mother. Now grown, she desperately wants to distance herself from that life. Yet one thing is stopping her from moving forward: she has questions.
In order to understand her past, Dahlia must go back. Back to her mother in the stifling town of Aurora, Texas. Back into the past of a woman on the brink of madness. But after she discovers three grave-like mounds on a neighboring farm, she’ll learn that in her mother’s world of secrets, not all questions are meant to be answered…
So….that’s my reading week so far. What does yours look like?
