It’s Monday! What are you reading?
Books I Completed This Week:
"How to (un)Cage a Girl” by Francesca Lia Block 119 pages – Francesca Lia Block has been one of my favorite writers since I was a teenager and first read Dangerous Angels. This particular book is a book of poetry, and the first non prose writing I’ve read by Block. Some of it I liked a great deal. Some didn’t really move me. Overall though, it was interesting to get some incite into the author, her life, and what makes her who she is.
"The Giver" by Lois Lowery 180 pages – I have had this on my to-be-read pile for a while. I like the meaning behind the book, but I think the author rushed through the ending of the book.
"The Immortal" by Christopher Pike 213 pages – Another reread from my teen years.
"The Te of Piglet" by Bejamin Hoff 257 pages – I wasn’t really impressed with this one, it seemed trite and very preachy to me – something that I don’t expect out of Taoism.
"Little Alters Everywhere" by Rebecca Wells 224 pages – This is the prequel to Divine Secrets of the Yaya Sisterhood. The stories were sometimes sad, sometimes funny. It gives a little incite into why Sidda is the way she is in Divine (though I haven’t read that book, only seen the movie).
