"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?"is a meme hosted by Sheila from Book Journey where readers share what they are currently reading, recently read, or plan to read next.
Currently Reading:The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. I have previously read Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible and Prodigal Summer and am enjoying this one so far as well.
Recently Finished: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. This is a wonderful classic for all ages. You can read my review here!
Up Next:Gileadby Marilynne Robinson and Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery
About Gilead (from amazon.com): Twenty-four years after her first novel, Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations from the Civil War to the twentieth century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. Writing in the tradition of Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, Marilynne Robinson's beautiful, spare, and spiritual prose allows "even the faithless reader to feel the possibility of transcendent order" (Slate). In the luminous and unforgettable voice of Congregationalist minister John Ames, Gilead reveals the human condition and the often unbearable beauty of an ordinary life.
