This is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. To join in, click on the image above, and answer these three questions:
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Candle in the Darkness, which is the first book in the Refiner’s Fire series. I really like Caroline’s character from what I’ve seen of her so far. She has a bit of spirit and a kind heart. I enjoyed seeing her reactions to her father selling a young slave boy (age eight!), and the ensuing interactions she had with the slaves after that moment.
The daughter of a wealthy slave-holding family from Richmond, Virginia, Caroline Fletcher is raised in a culture that believes slavery is God-ordained and biblically acceptable. But upon awakening to the cruelty and injustice it encompasses, Caroline’s eyes are opened for the first time to the men and women who have cared tirelessly for her. Her journey of maturity and faith will draw her into the abolitionist movement, where she is confronted with the risks and sacrifices her beliefs entail.
What did you just finish reading?
I finished the ARC copy of Meet Your Baker I received for the tour, which is currently running. You can see all the tour stops – with some tasty recipes – here on the tour schedule.
I have already reviewed Meet Your Baker – complete with a handful of quotes! You can read my review here.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I’m going to squeeze in All for a Story next before moving on to some of my tour review books!
