This Week in Books is a weekly round-up hosted by Lipsyy Lost and Found. In this post I look back on a book I've finished, highlight one I am currently reading, and one I will read in the near future. What are you reading these days?
THEN: I finished A Ladder to the Sky by John Boyne, which was excellent! Boyne has such a talent for creating memorable characters and compelling stories. You can find my review here.
NOW: Currently I am reading King Leopold's Ghost by Adam Hochschild. It's fascinating and repulsive at once, and though it isn't new information exactly, it is still - as it should be - shocking when you read the details of this brutal king's machinations.
NEXT: I think I might read This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger next. I've read a lot of about this book - only good things - so I am intrigued and want to give it a try. I haven't read this author before, though I have owned a copy of Ordinary Grace for years! Have you read it? What did you think?
