What are you currently reading?
Without Borders is an interesting book! It’s set in Nicaragua and features adopted Nicaraguan brother and sister working with their mother to provide medical care in their country. They have a volunteer guide and accept volunteer doctors to take on their excursions. There is a dating show reality star dentist and their American friend hoping for a recommendation to Brown along for the most recent expedition. I’m sitting right at the halfway point in the book. Lately, it’s started to drag a little. I’m trying to figure out where the rest of the plot is going to go. So far there has been a robbery at gunpoint in the jungle, a jaunt to eat starfruit, and a freak out over a lost vagina model for sex ed.
I didn’t do a lot of audiobook listening this past week, so I haven’t made much progress with The Hiding Place. I will be setting up my classroom tomorrow so I hope to get a little listening in. Since I have a lot of furniture to move and will be moving around the room so much, it might not be a long listen.
What did you just finish reading?
I finished On Lone Star Trail. There were TWO love triangles! One was very obvious and destined to fail and work out all right in the end, and the other one had me on the fence. Both guys were very nice, kind of, but I was really rooting for high school teacher TJ.
This was a sweet read and I loved the Texas Hill Country setting. Of course, I’m partial to it, but I did find it odd and unlikely that a Biblical-themed resort would flourish in the Texas Hill Country.
I also finished April’s Glow. This was the fourth book in the Tarrin Bay series, and I’d already read the fifth book (Memories of May), but they really are standalones. This was a different read. It delved into a few topics a little deeper than most quick-read contemporaries. I loved that Zac named his cat Juliet in response to April’s cat being named Romeo, and I loved their budding friendship.
What do you think you’ll read next?
With my two reviews written from last week’s reads, my NetGalley inched up to 9%! Slow as a sloth, but it’s progress. I’m making small strides! I hope to finish two more of these books this month and the other two next month and move on to my fall list. That will round out my Alphabet Soup challenge.
How about you? What are you reading this week?
