And now on to Sunday morning plans 😊
Oh this book started so so amazing and so drama filled and way messed up, I loved every minute of it but ..... the second half was just a mess so many things left unanswered and just the ending was just horrible. The second half felt very rushed to me and just lost interest.
The first installment is my favorite, definitely. I don't remember loving the second. This third installment might be slightly better than the second. This installment includes Don and Rosie's 11-year-old son, Hudson. I liked the friendships/relationships (both Don's and Hudson's) developed in this book, as well as Hudson's development (despite *and* because of the guidance of his parents).
You‘d be forgiven for picking The Happiest Refugee thinking you‘re going to get a light-hearted life story from one of Australia‘s most cheerful comedians. Indeed, there are plenty of chuckles to be had, but Anh Do‘s life hasn‘t all been smooth sailing. It‘s hardly a literary coup (he‘s a comedian, not a creative writing grad), but it‘s a cracking yarn nonetheless. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/the-happiest-refugee-anh-do/
Bookmail! Very much anticipating this one.
The youngest and I are off on a little holiday tomorrow. Here is my holiday reading stack. Four nights, four books. Seems likely 😆📚📚📚.
