2015 Required Reading: April

Required Reading 2015

 

Last month I lamented over the fact that I was on a blogging rut but I am glad that presently I am making progress in remedying the situation. Sometimes emotional chorva can leave you weak and unhappy and your momentum is disrupted but the good thing with emotions is that they come and go and life goes on again.

Anyway, here’s my reading update for March:

  • Not By Sight by Jon Bloom. 5/5 stars. Held a book discussion on this with friends last March 29. Delightful and profound re-tellings of familiar Bible stories.
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. 3/5 stars. I cry at the injustice of it all.
  • Perdido Street Station by China Mieville. 4/5 stars. He wanted wings to fly; he ended as a man. Will write my thoughts on this fantastic book soon.

And now for April! (What, it’s almost the first quarter of the year?)

April 2015 Required Reading

  • When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro. My first Ishiguro was one of my best reads two years ago and I want to relive that heart-breaking experience. Reading this book with some TFG mommies (Monique, Louize, and Maria).
  • High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. The TFG book for the month. Will I start stating my top 5s in everything now?

Happy summer season, friends!

  1. Started on When We Were Orphans only yesterday (trying to abide by the reading plan, hehe!) and before I knew it, I was done with the assigned reading for the week! It’s so easy to read. I’m glad I’m reading this with you mommies. 🙂
