August Books

1 09 2009

Well, after reading like crazy for most of this year, I ran into a little snag in August. VACATION plus Home renovation = Not much time to read. Both of these were read on my two week respite to Northwoods of Wisconsin and Michigan.

The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón – This is a prequel of sorts to Zafón’s Shadow of the Wind, taking place in Barcelona in the years preceding SOTW‘s events. A few of the minor characters cross over, but the story is all intrigue with the central character of David Martin, a writer, who is trapped in a house with a story all its own. Lots of sorted tales, the devil himself, and a most confusing ending. I enjoyed most of the story, but admit that it’s story format was similar to SOTW and left me with the same feelings as I was reading it.
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah – A total chick book that I absolutely despised. One of the main characters is a doormat, the other is the one to walk all over the doormat time and time again, always getting the grace and foregiveness of the doormat. Lots of eye rolling for me.

I’ve got a better start for September, with one book already read. Yeah. But we’re busy here with homeschool starting and more home projects.
