Good morning, and welcome to another day of Rainy Day Reading. It is the morning after a restless reading night. Perhaps I could sense the rain coming…or maybe it was the weather man’s prediction that tipped me off. LOL.
In any case, I was flipping between books, having trouble settling on any one book. I had been reading Gloria Steinem’s Life on the Road yesterday…and I’m halfway through it. I’m enjoying it, but sometimes I need to break up my nonfiction with a little make-believe.
So I found a little book on Pippa that seemed very different from the memoir: Lucky Us, by Amy Bloom. I’ve never read Amy, but I’ve heard good things. Well, it’s not that I didn’t like the book, but I was only a couple chapters in when I set it aside…for later.
Then…I grabbed Secret Sisters, which I had been planning to read next anyway…and soon I was lost in the pages. It will definitely be my “other” book for the rest of the week.
From the very first page, I felt myself sucked into the world of the characters: a frightening opener, a mystery, and a secret that has lasted for decades…and now it is coming out!
To sum up my feeling for the day: my daughter sent this image to me, and I think it says a lot about me. What do you think?
