Last week was a good one in books. I finished How to be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman, which was enjoyable, but not quite as good as I hoped it would be. I also finished The Ocean at the End of the Lane and that was a very amazing read. I'm looking forward to reading more of Gaiman's books - I can now see his appeal.
I spent a day not reading at all but mostly catching up on some chores, doing some shopping, catching up on Supernatural. I'm still not sure what my next read will be but this past week, I've been listening to The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. It has a whopping 19 discs, which is more than my max disc count so far of 12. I know I'm curious to see how this one will go. So far, content-wise, it is very informative. I don't quite like it when the author gets a bit preachy, but that can be forgiven considering the subject she has written about.
Next in the list
I am waiting on two good books from the library. One of them is Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park. I loved her Attachments, which I read only after Eleanor and Park started popping up everywhere. Some have liked Eleanor and Park better so I'm hoping to have a rollicking time with this book. The other one, I requested only because of its very strange looking cover - Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish by David Rakoff. Strange title too, huh?
