Infinite Country by Patricia Engel | Thoughts

   Published : 2021   ||    Format : print   ||    Location : Colombia ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆   What was it about the country that kept everyone hostage to its fantasy? The previous month, on its own soil, an American man went to his job at a plant and gunned down fourteen coworkers, and last spring alone there were four different school shootings. A nation at war with itself, yet people still spoke of it as some kind of paradise.. Thoughts : Infinite Country follows two characters - young Talia, who at the beginning of this book, escapes a girl’s reform school in North Colombia so that she can make her previously booked flight to the US. Before she can do that, she needs to travel many miles to reach her father and get her ticket to the rest of her family. As we follow Talia’s treacherous journey south, we learn about how she ended up in the reform school in the first place and why half her family resides in the US. Infinite Country tells the story of her family through the other protagonist, El

Books on my nightstand
I am reading one book on my nook in addition to a print book, and I'm enamored by both of them. I'm not exactly sure of what I'll read next, but I like to plan my week anyways!

Moloka'i by Alan Brennert: I have just a hundred pages left in this one. So far this book is really beautiful! I'm kind of surprised that it is a fast read as well as written beautifully. I rarely see both together in books. I'm also surprised that it took me so long to pick this one, because I'm totally riveted!
Cooking for Geeks by Jeff Porter: Believe it or not, this is my first cookbook ever! I had never been into cooking until recently. I hate reading recipes - I never quite understood them. This book however has more science in it, as in not physics or chemistry theorems, but the science of what happens when we do this or mix that. I am enjoying this book because I can actually understand why we do something and not just do it blindly as I always did.
Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch by Richard Hine: Now that I'm back into a corporate life, this book will make for interesting reading. I kind of like the cover, plus I have the habit of leaving notes at my desk too, when I go somewhere - say to the lab or outside at a non-lunch hour (As if I expect a VIP to walk in and ask for me).

Looks like you had a good week. Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch looks like it might be a funny book. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank goodness, someone else who read only one book this week! We seem to be on the same trend. SO looking forward to the Dewey Read-a-thon this weekend to get some more reading done
