Latest books.

I’ve read a few good books lately that are worthy of sharing.

Dancing on Broken Glass, by Ka Hancock, is a tear jerker.  Like maybe the last two hundred pages made me boo-hoo.  It is an incredibly sweet book about love, mental illness, accepting people for who they are, and sisterhood.  My sister would love this book because she loves books that make her weep.  I just get mad that I am readying a story–by choice–that seems to be ruining me.  But I did love it.  I just wouldn’t subject myself to it again.  Worth a read if you like to cry.

Loves God Likes Girls, by Sally Gary, was a really good, insightful read.  I provides a look into a woman’s life who struggles with homosexuality and her faith.  I appreciated her honesty and her willingness to tell her story.  I typically do not read about real life, but was glad I read this one.  I would recommend it to just about anyone.

Major-Pettigrews-Last-Stand

Mr. Pettigrew’s Last Stand, by Helen Simonson, was a delightful book.  I laughed out loud and loved taking my time to read it.  The first bit of the book was a little slow, but the story is worth discovering.  It is about an older British man, living in a small village, who decides to lives the “later” years of his life with boldness.  His observations about those younger than him are hilarious, and very true.  I would recommend it to men and women who like a good, charming story.

Next up for me: Wonder, by R. J. Palacio, Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, and The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls, by Anton Disclafani.
