Sunday's Weekly Book Recap #51

This has been a cold, snowy week, with two storms that amounted to over a foot of white stuff on the ground and temperatures well below freezing.  Although I like the extra reading time that staying indoors provides, it feels like winter is dragging on to an uncomfortable extreme and I am ready for spring!

Here's my weekly recap, which I am sharing on the following blogs:
   Showcase Sunday banner2a
 Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted  by Sheila at Book Journey
Finished reading . . .
The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion   The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg
An engrossing read with a cast of unforgettable characters. This story, which illustrates that it is never too late to discover unknown talents and find one's true self, has snappy dialogue, many humorous and sad moments, and enough twists and turns to keep things interesting. Flagg includes a history lesson about the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots) in WWII as a bonus to this delightful novel.

What I'm Reading   This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
This is a poignant young adult novel that touches upon bullying, self identity and self esteem, friendship, and family relationships.  I highly recommend it to teens and those who have a teen in their life.

Currently reading . . .
Picking Lemons: A C.J. Whitmore Mystery   Picking Lemons by J.T. Toman
