I finished one book this week, look for a review tomorrow.  Dollbaby is a debut novel by Laura Lane McNeal.  Trust me if you love stories of the civil rights movement or coming of age tales this is one for you!

Dollbaby

I’m still reading Grand Central and All I Love and Know.  Still listening to Bittersweet on audio, soon to finish.

What’s up next?  Well here are the next few for me :).

    Thanks for highlighting your book picks! I would enjoy Dollbaby and have heard good things about it. I lived through the civil rights movement, albeit as a very young child, so I have an interest in the ’60s in all ways considered. Have a great week.

    My book club chose “The Kitchen House.” It’s over 300 pages and I’m only on page 66, so I don’t know how I will feel at the end. It’s about the life of an orphaned, female indentured servant from Ireland and a slave who is the daughter of the master. Books like this one are very important, as they give readers a glimpse of the foundation of today’s issues. Personally (and as a black female), I’ve read many, so I hope the book will provide new insight; especially about the life of the indentured servant during that time period – knowledge that I’m lacking.

    I’m also trying Anna Karenina again. The first go round, a couple years ago, ended 20 pages into the book. It’s totally different this time. It seems I have the makings of a good soap opera here and I’m only on page 77 out of over 700. What makes it a classic will surely emerge, too.
