Current Reads

These are my current reads. One of my "Birthday New Years Resolutions", is that I read more. Pleasure stuff. Just for me.

Bad Dog, by Doug & Kaori Brown is a charming little collection of stories from pet owners, (as spoken through the dog's point of view) and the mishaps they get themselves into. Funny short stories. Definitely a fun read. My Mom found this book and gave it to me for my birthday. It is adorable.

The Almost Moon, by Alice Sebold, is a profound novel of a woman who goes to the point of breaking. The first chapter tells us of how the lead character kills her mother. If you are familiar with Alice Sebold, you know how her stories are dark and hard to put down. She thrilled me with The Lovely Bones and Lucky. I heard she had a new novel in a recent magazine. I can't find it though. I did come across this one that I missed. I will read, then hopefully find this new novel. Something about mental illness. I have forgotten the title and hope I find the article, remember or find it somewhere. (Getting old, forgetful!)

Well, the hubby is looking for me. Best be going to see what he needs.

Grab a book and have a nice read this evening!
