Week three, we are reading:
The Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I think I ought to add that I have read a book in the last three weeks (well three actually, but my sons will review the Hunger Games series that I was literally attached to during the New Year and cajoled T into spending his book token on Mockingjay so I could continue reading it...erk...bad parent alert!)
My book, for any adult reading who wants to find new reading material, was 'The Eve Tree' by Rachel Devenish Ford.
It's a story set in rural California spanning three generations of ranch owners. They are currently under threat from a bush fire that is spreading rapidly. This book astutely looks at relationships and depression. I have enjoyed reading Rachel's blog for a few years now and thought I would give her book a go. I wasn't disappointed, there was a lot of what I've come to know as Rachel's personality and philosophies underlying it which I could relate to alongside the subjects of depression, family values and forgiveness.
Anyway, reviews later!
