I have seen this meme for so long and I finally decided to join in. It is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. Head over there and check it out!
This week I finished-
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
Farthing by Jo Walton
After You by Jojo Moyes
Still Listening to-
It by Stephen King
After Alice by Gregory Maguire
In this brilliant new work of fiction, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings — and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll’s enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice’s mentioned briefly in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend, but arrives a moment too late — and tumbles down the rabbit hole herself.
Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and see her safely home from this surreal world below the world. If Euridyce can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is After Alice.
I’m reading “The Kite Runner.” I started it a couple of months ago and somehow I never got to finishing it. Anyone else want to smack the protagonist, Amir? Rotten kid 😦
I hear Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is so good.
I have it in my queue. Looking forward to reading it.
Welcome the meme. I hope to see you each week.
My It’s Monday, What Are You Reading
It was really wonderful- review in 2 days
Hi! Just reading non-fiction books as research for book 3.
What did you think of After You? It’s on my TBR list.
I loved it- totally held up to the first one. Btw- meant to tell you I read Letting Go-I LOVED it!
I just started After Alice, too. I’m reading it along with my friend. I live in AR and she lives in NC. We read the same books and talk about them on the phone. I guess if I don’t get to see her this is the next best thing.
Sounds so cool! Hope you enjoy it.
I’ve been meaning to read Farthing for too long. Did you like it?
I really enjoyed it. Now I want to get the next 2 in the series.
Welcome into the meme. I loved After You, just started reading her books this year. I like the look of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend so just off to look it up on GR.
Thank you! Readers of Broken Wheel was very good- def recommend it. Also- if you enjoy Moyes- her book The Last Letter From Your Lover was great!
I’ll be interested to see what you think of Alice. As much as I love all things Alice, I hated this. I think I called it a Hot Mess in my review.
Oh no! I went through a little face a few years ago when I read all of his books and loved them, but I haven’t read anything by him in years.
