After reading Celeste Ng's Little First Everywhere earlier this year and loving it, I have been excited to read her first novel, Everything I Never Told You.

My Kindle read:
I abandoned the biography of Billy Graham. I guess I'd say it's preaching to a different choir, so I moved on. I finally settled on The Two-Family House which was on sale for Kindle this week. It's a keeper. I'm enjoying it very much.
Last week I abandoned:
I had to wander the library a bit to find a new audiobook that would fit the weird reading mood I'm in, and I settled on The Wildling Sisters. It's atmospheric, mysterious, moody. Very good so far.

Happy back to school week! I figured it out recently, and this is my 25th back to school at the university where I work (and earned my degree). That's a full one-quarter of its existence!

Last week I began:
A couple of days ago I had a strong desire to re-read Glennon Melton's Carry On, Warrior, so I decided to squeeze it in to my September reads.
I also started Tony Hoagland's new book of poems Priest Turned Therapist Treats Fear of God and Rose Kennedy's Family Album which I found in a used bookstore this summer.
I'm thinking that a magical realism plot will erupt any moment, and I'm actually looking forward to it!
