Weekly Book Recap #57

This weekend is bringing a nice taste of spring, with 50 degree temperatures and turning the clock ahead an hour.  While I'm hoping these are definite signs that spring is just around the corner, there is talk of more snow in the coming week.

That said, here are the books I've finished reading, am currently reading, and bought or picked up from the library this week, along with what I plan to read next. I'm sharing my reading updates on the following blogs:

Book Club Reading    The Wife, the Maid, and the Mistress: A Novel
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd; The Wife, The Maid, and The Mistress by Ariel Lawhon

These two books, which are well-researched, fascinating and imaginative accounts of historical figures and times, are great reads for individuals and book clubs.  Kidd's book is inspired by the life of Sarah Grimke, an ardent abolitionist from Charleston, South Carolina; Lawhon's novel is based on the life of Judge Joseph Crater, who disappeared from New York City in August 1930, and was never seen again.
