The Past Week:
My reading week was definitely varied this week. The Shadow Hero was available to me through Netgalley and I loved it. He's a superhero from the past and I will review this excellent graphic novel closer to the July release date. Inheritance was a great sequel to Adaptation. I was happy to spend more time with Reese, Amber, and David. More Than This was a challenging book with so many questions and not a lot of answers. I don't know that there is any possible way to talk about the book without spoiling things. I am pretty amazed by Patrick Ness. The Wig in the Window was a fun middle grade mystery. Nightjohn was a powerful look at slavery through a child's eyes. Bitter Melon was a coming of age novel involving a Chinese American girl who is trying to respect her mother's wishes while figuring out what she wants for her life. I enjoyed the fable The Flight of the Hummingbird. It is a great inspiration for making a difference in the world. The other book I read was Tender at the Bone. I like to read books about food and memoirs with food are the best. I really enjoyed the beginning of the book. The last half was a little slow for me, but it was still a nice read.
The Coming Week:
I'm reading One Came Home, The Fifth Wave and Miles from Nowhere right now. I have Kindred on the shelf and will likely start that one next. It should be a great week. I hope yours is also.
