I have not been posting here this summer because I have been spending my vacation creating a blog that follows the remodeling of my kitchen.
However, I thought that it was time for me to list some of the books that I have been reading during the summer break. Reading is always a big part of my summertime plans.
For book group (comprised mostly of retired English teachers) I read Case Histories by Kate Atkinson.
After by Amy Efaw is a fairly new young adult novel about a teen who gets pregnant. She is in total denial about the pregnancy, and only comes to grips about what happened after she enters the juvenile detention center upon dumping the baby in the trash. The scenes about the birth are fairly disturbing and occur throughout the book as Devon begins to remember what happened. I almost put the book down a couple of times, but I am glad that I made it to the end.
