Welcome to Friday! Here is what is in the book bag/on the nightstand/coffee table.
Asha is reading Heads You Lose by David Hayword and Lisa Lutz. Asha reports, “Lutz wrote the Spellman Files which I loved so I thought I should give her new book a chance. It's going well so far. Siblings Lacey and Paul find a headless body in their backyard, talk about awkward!”
Elizabeth read Bent Road by Lori Roy. “This book freaked me out in a major way and I loved every minute of it. You’ll be sleeping with the lights on but it’s worth it!”
Pat is enjoying The Paris Wife. “This is a fictional account of Hemingway's young life, married to his first wife, living a bohemian life in Paris and struggling with his writing career.”
I am reading The Foremost Good Fortune by Susan Conley. This beautifully written memoir recounts a young family’s time in two very foreign countries: China and the Land of Cancer. Conley’s writing is stark and lean without being cold.
Barbara M. just finished The Girl in the Song: The True Stories Behind 50 Rock Classics by Michael Heatley and Frank Hopkinson. It tells of the inspiration behind songs such as "Sweet Caroline", "Peggy Sue" and 48 others.
