This is it, my twinkly reading stars, the last week before we move into our house. Whether it will be finished or not remains to be seen so you can just imagine all the noise inside my head as I try and remember everything that needs to happen in the next week. I have to pack up a rental house, make decisions about the remodel, and figure out where to put everything in a house that isn’t finished. I’m still trying to find time for books but it’s a little tough so tell me: what are YOU reading?
If I can find the time here are the books I’m using for escape this week:
The Star Side of Bird Hill is a debut novel, which always piques my interest. While the cover is not my favorite the story of two sisters moving from Brooklyn to Barbados and trying to navigate life with their grandmother sounds like it might be just right. Generational and cultural conflict always makes for interesting reading.
Candace Bushnell is back (she’s the author of Sex and the City in case you forgot) with Killing Monica. By and large I like everything she writes, mostly because she doesn’t stray too far from a formula that works- frothy satire that exploits the worst of American excess and pop culture. If I can laugh and roll my eyes at the same time it’s a win-win.
