My sincere apologies to After’s Kristin Waterfield Duisberg. I had planned to read After, but was sidetracked by Philomena: A Mother, Her Son and a Fifty-Year Search by Martin Sixsmith (see June’s Book Review). And let me say, it was not a welcome sojourn, but rather a foray into a tangled mess.
Finally, I have started After and it is wonderfully written. I can’t wait to learn more about Nina, Martin, and Audrey, whose names are inscribed in my memory, as though they are acquaintances moving into my circle of friends. This is a book I will enjoy reviewing in July.
My other reading commitments this month include:
- Stephen King’s 11-22-63 (audible). After mentioning that King’s The Stand is one of my all-time favorite books, my book club members recommended 11-22-63. I have already started it and King has me enthralled.
- Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity (hardcover) is our book club book.
- My Princesses Learn to Be Brave, a children’s book by Stephanie Rische, one of my five Twitter Author books.
This month’s Twitter Authors (Valerie Poore, Jack Stone, Dan WEbster, Randy Gravitt, Marala Scott, Alyssa Curry and Stephanie Rische) provide an interesting assortment of books for summer reading. I hope you will consider selecting one of their titles to enjoy, and please let me know what you think. Although I plan to read each of the books someday, for this month, I decided to keep it simple and read the children’s book, My Princesses Learn to Be Brave, by Stephanie Rische.
