Weekly Book Recap #102

As the saying goes, beware the ides of March.  Good advice for Julius Caesar, but around here the middle of March has brought a warming trend.  Most of the accumulated snow has disappeared, and I've put my mittens away for good.  While I haven't let down my weather guard completely, things are looking and feeling much better.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone.  Hope you enjoy the week ahead.

On to my latest book activity . . .

Saving Grace  

Saving Grace by Jane Green

Behind their seemingly perfect life, trouble is brewing in the Chapman marriage and household.  This totally engrossing read filled with interesting characters and hurtful secrets had me racing through the pages to its satisfying conclusion.

We Are Water

We Are Water by Wally Lamb

Although I have read and enjoyed several other novels by Wally Lamb, the subject matter, numerous tragic events, and dysfunctional characters in We Are Water made it a difficult (and not so enjoyable) read for me.  My book club shared the same sentiments when we discussed the book on Friday night.
