Infinite Country: A Novel | Patricia Engel

Decided to take Reese‘s suggestion and start reading this book. Only a few pages in but so far I‘m liking it.

I finished this book last week. I really enjoyed it. The only thing that bothered me was that some of the stories/essays were out of chronological order. Other then that, AMAZING book!

This is the third book in the Asylum series by Madeleine Roux. Dan and his friends head to New Orleans to settle Jordan into his uncles house. While there, Dan learns more about his parents and why they died. All in all, it was a god book. I didn‘t live out like I did the first two in the series. There is a fourth book, a prequel.

I finished The Deep Dark Descending by Allen Eskens! This is not a book I would have picked up, but my youngest asked me to read it... A burnt out, middle age cop is trying to solve the murder of his wife and a prostitute. The whole book takes place in a three day period. It moved very quickly.

Somehow, neither of my children are readers! :( Both my ex-husband and I are avid readers so I don't understand why my children aren't. So, when my youngest asked me to read this book because she had read it and liked it, I was like, Of Course I Will Read This Book! :) I'm not that far in, but it's pretty good so far. It's not something I would have picked up and read, but when my daughter asks me to, of course I'm going to read it.

Octoberwoman My girls were both avid readers up until high school. Now they don‘t read much at all. But if they tell me about a book I should read, even if it doesn‘t sound the least bit appealing to me, I read it. And if they tell me about a book they heard about and want to read, I‘ll buy it for them, even if it cost more than I would spend on myself! 2y
jnichole @Octoberwoman I hear you! Both of my girls like Manga, so I guess it's a form of reading. If they ask, I will buy them a new Manga; even if I don't understand what the appeal is. 2y

MaleficentBookDragon What did you think of it? 2y
jnichole @MaleficentBookDragon I really liked it. It was a good follow-up to the first book. Once I finish my current book I'll start the third and final book. The first two have been pretty fast paced.

MaleficentBookDragon @jnichole let me know when you start the third one. Maybe I‘ll start it then too. 2y

I listened to House of Futures by Madeleine Roux a few weeks ago, it was amazing. So even I saw this sitting on my fathers daughters bookshelf, I had to borrow it. It‘s just as good as His off Furirs.

This has been on my TBR list since it came out. Because I have a parent that suffers from Huntington's this book could be a wrong choice. Fingers crossed I can get through it.

Very well written. He doesn't have answers, he's trying to figure out out like the rest of us. He's honest and willingly bars his mistakes for all to see.

I'm all about empowerment this year! This is really a great book. It's about becoming the person you were meant to be, but not doing it in a way that is harmful to others.

It was a cute book. The only reason I'm saying So-So is because there were placed, I felt, dragged to much; there were things that could have been left out. Otherwise it's a light, fun read.

I was not overly impressed with this book. I tried to figure out why it was considered a children's classic the entire time I was reading it. I won't be reading the rest of the books.
