It's Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date that is guaranteed to grow your TBR list!
It's Memorial Day, the day when amidst backyard barbecues and bonfires Americans remember those soldiers who lost their lives in service to this country. When I was a kid though, my father would take me to a little cemetery every year, the same cemetery, where we would pause and reflect in front of a group of graves of soldiers from foreign lands who somehow ended up buried here. My father has moved farther away now, but I still make sure to visit those graves every year.
Read Last Week:
River Road by Carol Goodman: This was a tough read at first for me. I love Goodman, but this one lacked a little of the certain something that makes her books so special. Nevertheless, I did end up enjoying it, despite a rocky start.
The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum by Kristen Weiss; I picked this up at the library on a whim, and it wasn't that bad. Reviews on both coming soon.
Reading This Week:
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater: I am so so excited to read this!!
Watership Down by Richard Adams: My favorite book ever. I have been reading it a little bit at a time this season. I usually reread it every year all at once, this year I have been taking my time. It's always nice to revisit Hazel and the gang.
Game of Thrones which is cray cray this year, and just cleaning up the old DVR.
