So, I’ve been meaning to be better about posting reviews, but alas, it doesn’t ever seem to happen, so I’m going to try something different. I like the idea of Sunday Salon, but am going to adapt it a bit. Once a week, I’m going to try to post what I’m listening to, what I’m reading, and what I’ve finished. So, here it goes–
What I’m listening to: Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman–I love Gaiman. He’s got great voice and style and imagination, and this book is no different. I’m about half done, and I’m enjoying the characters and the trouble they get into.
What I gave up on: Kiss by Ted Dekker–It may have been the audio, but I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t ever sympathize with the main character, and it was downhill from there.
What I’m reading: A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah–I’m reading this with one of my tutor students. It makes me really sad to read all that these child soldiers lived through, and I think the contrast makes the beautiful writing even more spectacular.
What I’m reading: Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver–I’m liking this. It’s beautifully written and has much interesting wisdom and is especially interesting with my religious background.
What I finished: Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind–I found the TV series based on this book last summer and loved it, so I knew I wanted to read the book. Then, one of my students started reading the series this spring and gave me the first book at the end of the year. I LOVED it! It’s different from the TV show, but so good! I’m excited to read the next one!
