It's a new year to be filled with great reading in wonderful books!
You can check out my Reading Resolutions here: Reading Resolutions for 2013
These are the books I hope to pull down from the shelves and delve into in the coming months.
Currently Reading: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
This is the latest selection from the Oprah 2.0 book club. I am already half-way through this one and the writing is excellent. I am excited to try the process of online discussion and look forward to sharing my experience with fellow readers.
Recently Finished: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
I had read this book many years ago but it was book club's recent selection so I needed to reread it in order to discuss it at length. It was much more challenging than I recall it being the first time I read it. I had previously watched the recent Masterpiece Classics adaptation which helped with following the storyline. The language is often difficult to follow due to the dialect of the characters. Following two families for two generations, Bronte weaves an incredible story of love and loss in this book that has stood the test of time providing it the label of a classic novel.
Up Next: The Witness by Dee Henderson
This is my book club's latest selection.
Book Description (from amazon.com: Police Chief Luke Granger's witness to a murder, Amy Griffin, has been on the run for years. Her family thinks she was murdered eight years ago, but Amy chose to accept a life in the shadows in order to protect her sisters' lives. Now unveiled secrets about their father have thrust the sisters into the public spotlight. The man who wants Amy dead now sees her sisters as the way to locate her. Luke and two of his homicide detectives are determined to stand in the way. They are each falling in love with a different sister, and it's become a personal mission to keep them safe. But chances are that at least one of them will fail, and facing the future will take a faith deeper than any of them currently knows.
I hope everyone is enjoying their new reading selections for 2013!
