This week, I wrote two book reviews: An American Beauty, by Shana Abe and The Ferryman, by Justin Cronin (forthcoming). An American Beauty was a decent historical fiction read, although the MC felt really distant. And The Ferryman….well, I’ve decided that Justin Cronin’s writing just isn’t for me. The first 2/3rds of this book felt very “done” to me, like I’d read something similar a few times before. The last third just felt like confusing chaos. So, yeah, I’ll probably be skipping his stuff in the future.
I also wrote a post over on A Little Bit Greener: garden greenery and blooms.
My family is in town, so I haven’t been doing much reading. Hopefully I’ll make up for that in the next day or two.
