So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Walls by Hollie Overton
Another wonderful reading week. I was able to read an old book from my TBR. Looking for Alaska by John Green has been on my shelf for a quite a while. Look out for my review tomorrow. My review of The Walls by Hollie Overton will be up next Monday.
The Lost History of Stars by Dave Boling
In turn-of-the-century South Africa, fourteen-year-old Lettie, her younger brother, and her mother are Dutch Afrikaner settlers who have been taken from their farm by British soldiers and are being held in a concentration camp. It is early in the Boer War, and Lettie’s father, grandfather, and brother are off fighting the British as thousands of Afrikaner women and children are detained. The camps are cramped and disease ridden; the threat of illness and starvation are ever present. Determined to dictate their own fate, Lettie and her family give each other strength and hope as they fight to survive amid increasingly dire conditions.
I am currently reading this historical fiction set in South Africa in 1900. It is good though a heartbreaking read so far but I wish I had read it sooner.
Hush Little Baby by Joanna Barnard has some really good reviews on goodreads. I hope that I will enjoy it.
Small Great Things by Jodi Piccoult is a book that I have always wanted to read. I will finally get to it this week.
I am really excited about reading older books from my TBR. In the coming weeks, you will be seeing more of these books on my WWWs. I will still be posting about ARCs because who am I kidding, I can’t stop getting new books. However, I hope that my reading for the rest of the year will be more balanced.
So, what are you reading? Let me know in the comments section.
