Wheee! I'm reading 'The Wind Through The Keyhole', by Stephen King. I've never read any of the books of his, so I read it as a standalone novel. The onion layer storytelling was AMAZING! There was a story inside a story inside a story, which just felt. . . nice?

As in, 'The Wind Through The Keyhole', is actually the name of a fable being told in the story. Like, the character in the story tells it.

"Berenice" By Edgar Allan Poe. It's quite maddening, I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I am currently reading The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews. The story was a little slow to start; however as with many good books, it’s become more interesting and thought provoking as I’ve delved into the book. It’s wonderfully written and easy to follow. I quite enjoy the way the book alternates back and forth between current time and the history of how the High Tide Club came to be. This book touches on almost every human emotion and addresses many issues of humanity from years ago as well as today. From the friendship of three white girls and a black girl, whom they took under their wing, even though the times would have called for them to disassociate with her due to her race. The High Tide Club didn’t care about that. They cared about their friendship, not what color skin they had or their differences. The book also gets into abuse and sexual assault. This is hugely impactful during this time of the “Me Too” movement. The girls find out one of their own in the High Tide Club has been assaulted and they stand by her, protect her and tell her she’s never going back to the man who did this to her. The book also shows us a lot about being a single mother and how hard but rewarding that can be. I can’t wait to finish this book and get into all the different layers that I know are ahead.

Just finished 'The Great Gatsby' for fun, and 'The Little Book Of Thrift' to learn from.

Both were under $20 and both were fab reads.
. I read The Great Gatsby in high school and later on after college. Funny how I liked the book more as I got older.

im just reading the sun paper right now, im not much of a book reader but i would like to get into it as i need to increase my vocab :twisted:

I just finished reading. Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle . It is a non stop thriller and I wasn’t able to put it down. If you like these kind of books, I thought it was phenomenal

I am currently reading Stonebark Hill. It takes place in Australia in the 1950’s . A very diffferent book

I'm currently reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Unfortunately, some time back, I read a review, which completely spoiled the end. Thankfully, I haven't had much trouble enjoying the book in spite of that, which really says something about its quality.
