Wow. It has now been at least nine hours of pretty straight reading. I have finished two books now. Hooray! A full review of Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets will be up this week. I loved it. I gave it four stars on good reads. I normally don’t read books where the character is a male (not because I’m sexist, I just don’t find I connect with them as much) but I connected deeply with James and his struggles. I really felt for him and his struggles for his sister. The ending was great. Very hopeful and delightful. I would of course recommend it, but there is a caveat. There is descriptive self-mutilation in the form of cutting that takes place in the novel. So, if that is a major trigger for you, STAY AWAY! It’s a little tough at times, but it isn’t done in an insensitive manner. It’s actually done and handled well. There is only one instance that made me unhappy, but I won’t go into that.

 

I did not participate in any new challenges as I got to wrapped up in finishing my book. No complaints here, though. I am happy with two books finished in one day.

 

Thanks for stopping by. Happy reading!!!
