We've been enjoying some good books here, as always:
- I finished The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion, the sequel to The Rosie Project, which I read and loved during New Year's week. The second book was just as good as the first, though different. There were still plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, but the story also brought me close to tears at one point.
- I just started The Two-Family House by Lynda Cohen Loigman, due out March 8. This is my next review book for Publisher's Weekly.
- I am still listening to The Cage by Megan Shepherd, a teen/YA novel which has been called "The Maze Runner meets Scott Westerfeld," about humans being held in zoo-like places by an alien race. It's been really engrossing and unique, and the audio is well-done with different actors.
- My husband, Ken, is reading a Christmas gift from me, The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling), the first of her Cormoran Strike series. He's enjoying it so far, and he and I are having fun trying to translate the Britishisms (a fun game I like to play with my British Facebook friends!)
- Jamie, 21, is reading Trysmoon Book One: Ascension by Brian Fuller, a Medieval fantasy (his favorite kind of book!), and enjoying it - he's actually home sick with us today.
- Craig, 18, is reading Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel for his World Lit class. As you can imagine, he's not too thrilled with this choice! He's on chapter 4 and not loving it so far.
