My goal of reading a new book a month has been going very well. I have now read eight total books. The most recent one that I just finished was The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. This book is about three sisters who come home when their mother is diagnosed with breast cancer. The oldest one is Rose and she is the one that actually never left their home town. She is bossy and controlling and feels that the family would fall apart if she weren't around. The next sister is Bianca, known as Bean. She is the starlet of the group. She left their hometown as fast as she could for the big city and glamorous life. The baby is Cordelia, known as Cordy. She is the gypsy of the family, roaming around the country working just long enough to earn money to move on. These girls are the daughters of Dr. Andreas, who is the foremost expert on Shakespeare and teaches literature at the local college.
I don't want to say too much more for anyone who may want to read it. But, I really enjoyed it. It was real and I like stories like that. I have also just finished the sixth book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events. I am enjoying these series greatly. They are quick and easy reads and I'm almost finished with the seventh one.
Next up on my reading list is Steig Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I have read up to chapter six and have liked it so far. I am also going to start reading Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah.
I know it seems silly to have so many books on my currently reading shelf, but there are times you want to read something light and easy instead of heavy. That's why I have so many books currently in the reading process.
