Books I Finished This Week:
My week was consumed with reading some adult books I had been meaning to read lately. I have been balancing these books with others in the last couple weeks and just decided to focus on finishing them this week.
Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver is a beautiful story of a woman who is in the midst of realizing that the life she is living is not the one she wants. Woven into the story is a story about monarch butterflies and global warming. It was really interesting to learn about these beautiful creatures while also enjoying a well-written story. I like the way this book ended and my admiration for Kingsolver has continued to grow with this book.
Lisa Unger was one of the authors I heard speak at the Key West Literary Seminar. She is well-spoken and does a great job of sharing about her life as a writer. I was even more interested in reading her books after hearing her speak. Beautiful Lies was a really interesting mystery and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in the Ridley Jones series.
Books I am Currently Reading:
I am still listening to The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. I am absolutely enjoying this interesting fantasy book and the narration on the audiobook. I am also still reading The Notorious Benedict Arnold by Steve Sheinkin.
I am probably going to pick up Counting by 7's to read this week. I will play it by ear for what else I might decide to start.
What are you reading this week? Have a great reading week!
