Queen of Water by Laura Resau...I am making slow progress on this YA novel about a young Ecuadorian girl who is practically a slave, sold by her parents. It is well-written but with the new school year my energy to read at night is low.
I'm listening to:
Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell..."Malcolm Gladwell looks at why major changes in our society so often happen suddenly and unexpectedly. Ideas, behavior, messages, and products, he argues, often spread like outbreaks of infectious disease."-Goodreads
I just finished:
The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder by Rebecca Wells...I half listened to/half read this delightful (and a bit sappy) novel set in Louisiana. I loved the narrator's voice on the audiobook but I had to quit listening because there were too many sad bits and I don't think it is a good idea to drive and cry at the same time. I've been "living" this book for the past few days. I love it when that happens.
What's up next:
Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol (a graphic novel)..."Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century." -Goodreads. I'm thinking about my Mock Printz workshop. Will this graphic novel make it onto our list this year?
What are you reading this week? Anything good?
