Man, I really like Clarke's stuff. Not real flashy, but emotionally detailed.
I wasn't ready to leave the world of Evergreen yet, so I'm following my emotions and diving right into the next book,The Golden Cup. Making this my fiction book for the week ahead.
My nonfiction will be Rewire - Change Your Brain to Break Bad Habits , Overcome Addictions, Conquer Self Destructive Behavior. I love reading about how to change- I believe strongly in our ability to and that it's an ongoing process in our lives, from a personal and spiritual standpoint. I enjoy reading the science behind it.
This is what I will be reading this weekend. My other plans? The weather is going to be meh. So I will be cooking vegetarian burgers with my boyfriend and family Saturday night, watching Rebels (cuz it's the Maul and Obiwan showdown!!! Round 2!!) and we might visit a local museum after our religious meeting on Sunday.
Enjoy your weekend!

When two very different men fall in love with her, Anna is destined to be forever torn in love and loyalty.
****One of the best books I've ever read.*****
This is the book I've been looking for. Following one character through their entire lives, 705 pages, and the story never dragging. Secondary characters so powerful in their own right, they feel like people you know. History woven effortlessly into the fiction. This book hit all the right notes.
I'm sorry it's over.
It is the first in a series though and I own the next book, so that tempers my book hangover.
If you're even slightly interested in a book like this, go read it. You won't be disappointed.
This book is why I am so glad I resolved to read books on my shelf.
It's just so good, like a warm blanket- I can lose myself in the story. And I am so emotional over these characters! Historical fiction at its best. It's 700+ pages and I'm not antsy reading it which is unusual for me with long books.
I have the series - just missing the last one.
Love it when you discover a new author - and to discover that she's written 20+ books is even better! :)

What a read! This story will definitely have you emotionally all over the place with every page having something that will simply blow you mind. I found all of the characters [Georgia, Carson, Savannah, Delta] to name a few giving the reader a little bit of it all from 'drama, concern, approval, confused, support to even some growth' in this Parrish family. What a family that may 'go hard' but in the end will be their for each other. The reader will be kept in the state of what dark secrets will be dropping next. But will this family survive with this latest acknowledgement from that Ms. Monica? To find out you will have to get this author's next novel to see what all will be happening next ....as this drama continues in this Parrish family!
