A BOOKISH WEEK…

Today I’m participating in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words Here’s how it works:

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?

CURRENTLY READING:

Nomadland, by Jessica Bruder

“People who thought the 2008 financial collapse was over a long time ago need to meet the people Jessica Bruder got to know in this scorching, beautifully written, vivid, disturbing (and occasionally wryly funny) book.” —Rebecca Solnit

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I discovered the newest Sally Hepworth book this week, and now can’t wait to read it:  The Good Sister, with a release date of 4/13/21.  Yes, a long wait!

 

Synopsis:  Sally Hepworth, the author of The Mother-In-Law, delivers a knock-out of a novel about the lies that bind two sisters.

From the outside, everyone might think Fern and Rose are as close as twin sisters can be: Rose is the responsible one, with a home and a husband and a fierce desire to become a mother. Fern is the quirky one, the free spirit, the librarian who avoids social interaction and whom the world might just describe as truly odd. But the sisters are devoted to one another and Rose has always been Fern’s protector from the time they were small.

Fern needed protecting because their mother was a true sociopath who hid her true nature from the world, and only Rose could see it. Fern always saw the good in everyone. Years ago, Fern did something very, very bad. And Rose has never told a soul. When Fern decides to help her sister achieve her heart’s desire of having a baby, Rose realizes with growing horror that Fern might make choices that can only have a terrible outcome. What Rose doesn’t realize is that Fern is growing more and more aware of the secrets Rose, herself, is keeping. And that their mother might have the last word after all.

Spine tingling, creepy, utterly compelling and unpredictable, The Good Sister is about the ties that bind sisters together…and about the madness that lurks where you least expect it.

    • Thanks, Elizabeth, I was stunned at how long we have to wait for The Good Sister, but then again, her books are always worth waiting for.

      I am still blocked from linking Rainy Days and Mondays posts on Facebook! Outrageous! I asked for an explanation from FB, but have heard nothing…of course.

      I am glad I have other blogs that I can link, but I like being able to link this one. Sigh.

      • That is very odd about still being blocked.

        Very good you have other blogs you can use.

        I have been asking to have a problem fixed along with hundreds of others that causes a notification to go to the top of the feed instead of going to the post that has been replied to, but they never reply or fix it or they say go here and nothing is done. It is on my iPad that it happens.

        Take care.
