My favorite month has arrived (birthday month) and I decided to get a head’s start on our library book club selection, The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. The book group day always seems to sneak up on me so I am proud to be proactive this time. Again, I’m half listening to it and half reading it and with this type of rich storytelling, it has helped tremendously. And with this blizzard and endless shoveling I am doing, I look forward to curling up and escaping to this magical/mythical place.
The other book I am reading is a middle grade book titled, The Secret Hum of a Daisy by Tracy Holczer. It’s another “meatier” middle grade book but so beautifully written and the character development is outstanding. So many emotions and layers, it’s a good read despite the tone.
