There has been little knitting here this week, which shocks me! Silly me imagined that seaming my friend’s sweater would be something I would complete quickly! Reality was that it took much longer than I anticipated and there was no time left to bake anything on Monday!
However, Tuesday morning dawned grey and very rainy – just the thing to inspire a bit of time in the kitchen baking! My usual morning walk was put on pause until the rains stopped later in the day, but I managed nicely to fit both baking and walking into the daily agenda.
I have no knitting progress to show you although I did take Aisé to Tuesday night knitting – which was practically the only knitting I have done this week! I would have photos to show you my progress but the light was long gone by the time I got home so no photo of any knitting to share today!
However, I do have some spectacular books to update you all with!
I finished The Huntress. This book revolved around 3 main characters – I had a hard time getting into the story, but once I did, I really enjoyed it. There were twists and turns that I did not expect. After a slow start, it finished brilliantly – 4-stars and I very much recommend this book!
I listened to Dani Shapiro narrate Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love. I enjoyed it tremendously – with a word of warning – do not listen to this book while walking, because there were so many unexpected moments that made me cry. Which is not exactly the thing you want to do while walking! 4-stars and I highly recommend it!
After the Flood is the book that was the October “Libraries Transform Book Pick” I think it is curious that they selected this very curious story that takes place post global warming. Yes, another flood (or two) have covered most of the earth and this is post-flood and the earth is still mostly covered with water. I had originally given the book 3-stars, but I have since downgraded that review to 2-stars. So much of the story is barely believable and there are so many lose ends that never get settled. Sadly, I do not recommend.
Finally, I finished The Banker’s Wife – again, I am not sure where I saw this book and it started out so wonderfully! I could barely put it down and then it all sort of fell apart in the last 20% of the novel. The ending could have been so much better, but it was still a riveting novel. I really debated about how to rate this one and I started with 4-stars, but I have downgraded that to 3-stars.
I am *almost* done with Just Mercy and I am really looking forward to discussing this with Read With Us!
