I have been in what us avid readers call a book slump. Or maybe I have just been in a slump myself. Either way what has resulted is a lot of starting books and no follow-thru. So… I haven’t updated like I should because I haven’t been able to actually finish anything. But I am trying!
Currently I am reading In the Stillness by Andrea Randall. How do I classify this novel? Ummm… It’s chick lit in some ways, it definitely has a romance (I’m a sucker for romance, you will find this out about me). This book is Serious with a capital S. It has a soldier coming home from Afghanistan in it. It has a cutter in it. It has PTSD in it. It has a broken marriage in it. It has dreams, hopes, aspirations lost in it. And I am hoping that in the end we see great character changes. I want to see those lost dreams, hopes, and aspirations become reality. We shall see. This book is relatable to me because the main character is a stressed out stay at home mom. What can I say? Just because I like staying at home doesn’t mean I don’t get stressed out! This book was recommended to me with 6 out of 5 stars. So it is with high hopes that I continue reading. Even if it is slower than usual.
Read on, my friends! Read on!
