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.
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.
