Books I Read This Week 2017 – 13

I started my week with Celine which I’d been really looking forward to as I’ve liked both of the two other Peter Heller books I’ve read mostly because his writing isn’t what I usually pick up and this was no exception. I loved the story. I loved Celine. I enjoyed this book.

I then decided to finish the three middle grade books we needed to read for the Lit Club I teach. I finished  The Menagerie well after Nathaniel read all three books in the series. This is a cute, lovely book. I was disappointed in Number the Stars because it stayed so much on the surface of what I thought was a tough tough story. And Fuzzy Mud was okay. Not amazing but not terrible either. Interesing premise. 

After those, I read Stretch which I was worried wouldn’t be great, but it was. I enjoyed every moment of it. Instead od moving to fiction I felt like reading Harriet Lerner’s Fear and Other Uninvited Guests which was absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait to read more of her.

And I finished my week with Innocents and Others. This book was on my to-read list last year but I never got around to it. It has mixed reviews and I kept wanting to stop when I started but I pushed myself to make it through and in the end I really liked how the stories came together. I enjoyed this one more than I thought.

I’m hoping for some more fiction this week. An especially good one if I get lucky.
