Time flies when you are having fun but time really flies when you are busy. Since my last post, I had a family vacation in Disneyworld, got kids settled back in school after winter break, hosted two big events and have been researching how to take this blog and create a website out of it. Stay tuned on that…
I then launched into Roses by Leila Meacham. I liken it to The Thornbirds. Big family saga, lots of generations, etc. Are you ever disappointed after you go to a movie that everyone raves about? That’s how I felt about Roses. The reviews were so good that I felt the book didn’t live up to them. It was a good read but it wasn’t a great read. And, as you all know I am looking for a great read.
I think I’ve found that great read. I am in the middle of The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams. It is a novel set in a polygamist compound. 52% of the way through and it is really captivating. It is the story of a young woman who has been anointed to marry her elder uncle. She is now wondering about life outside the compound. As Big Love on HBO is one of my favorite TV shows right now, I am loving this book.
What are you reading and where are you going?
