My Reading Stack - July 11, 2017

I am in a bit of a quandary regarding my reading stack for the week. I am still reading "Hourglass" by Dani Shapiro. I either finished or passed on the rest of the books from last week. 

Since it is already Wednesday now, I decided to post my possible reads for the week. All three of the books are new releases -- one came out in June and two will be out in August. So while I continue with "Hourglass," I will try a few new ones. I will let you know next week how I fared.
I pulled out my old Sudoku puzzle book a couple of days ago and quickly became addicted to it again. It has distracted me from reading.
I am back to my favorite tea cup -- the Gustav Klimt "Jardin de ferme" with Tazo chai in it -- hard to beat that!!
What is in your stack this week?

"milk and honey" by rupi kaur

Sometimes the words flowed so beautifully and other times the words were so disturbing.  But I felt as though I had to go on reading.  For some reason, I could not leave the book unfinished.

My Reading Stack - July 4, 2017

My reading selections this week are all over the place. I finally received "milk and honey" by rupi kaur (yep, all lower case -- hard for me to even type it that way), a very diverse collection of poetry. I am still trying to get into "The... Ministry of Utmost Happiness," and "The Dress Shop of Dreams is a pleasant read. "Still Life with Tornado" caught my attention by its cover -- we shall see how it reads.

I finished reading "Anything is Possible" by Elizabeth Strout. It is a collection of stories about people in a small town rather than being a novel. It took me a few chapters before I put that together -- I was a little slow. Strout's writing is wonderful and she does a great job of linking the stories together. It is a quick read and definitely worth the short amount of time it takes to read it.

Oh yes, the coffee mug this week is a gift I received from a friend of mine in Canada (tku Rhonda Schellenberg). It commemorates the marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton in April 2011.

The background is a beautiful PURPLE tote bag I received from another friend (tku Sharon Smith).
Okay, back to my books. Let me know what you are reading this week.
