What I’ve been Reading Lately: February 2018
This book had a very A Wrinkle In Time feel for me. Kids and unexplained magic. Bizarrely creepy, but not over-the-line scary (for my sensitive soul) as only Neil Gaiman can be. I wanted to finish the book to see how everything turned out, but it was certainly not my favorite. My favorites of his, that I’ve read so far, would be Stardust and Neverwhere.
This was the first book I’ve read by Joshilyn Jackson. I loved it! It was perfect airplane reading for our recent trip to Egypt. Light enough to keep me interested with a lot going on around me, but it delves into some deeper topics (racism, parenting, love) as well. Warning: very strong language at times.
I have been meaning to read this book for years, and I’m so glad I finally got to it. It was more interesting and engaging than I was expecting. Such a fascinating look at how we can improve our lives and ourselves by better understanding our habits and the triggers than lead us to poor decisions.
