It's Monday, What Are You Reading?
It's been a while since I have participated in this meme! Lately my reading and review posting has been pretty spotty and I need some more organization and motivation to keep reading. I have a pile of fantastic books I want to get to, and this meme should definitely help me get back on track. Check out all of the other participants at Book Journey by Sheila.
Right now I'm reading two books:
The Uninvited Guests by Sadie Jones
Set in rural England just after the turn of the last century, Emerald is preparing to celebrate her 20th birthday when a train crash brings a crowd of mysterious travellers to her home for shelter. I just started this one this weekend, and it's a page turner!
Sarai by Jill Eileen Smith
This book tells the story of Sarah and Abraham from the Bible, from Sarah's perspective. I started this a while ago and put it down but am looking forward to finishing it. It's always interesting to read a Biblical story in fictional form.
The next two books in my pile are:
Wait No More by Kelly & John Rosati
This book is about the Rosati's family adoption journey, adopting four children from the American foster care system. I am really looking forward to this one as adoption is something that our family hopes to do one day. It's also a great time to read it as May is Foster Care Month. In Canada there are over 76,000 children in the foster care system and in the US, over 400,000 children.
Home by Toni Morrison
In Toni Morrison's latest novel, Frank Money is veteran of the Korean War who went through traumatic experiences and is now back home facing the trials of racist America. When he rescues his medically abused sister and takes her back to their childhood home he faces childhood memories and the horrors of war head on.
