Each week readers share what they are reading for the week. I joined because there is no way I can review every book I read. Up this week:
Awakening Iran by Shrin Ebadi
Last Night I Sang To The Monster by Benjamin Alire Saenz. See review at La Bloga. The male point of view requires a mental adjustment for me. No exception here but once I fell into step with Zach's train of thought and language I was hooked.
Tortilla Sun by Jennifer Cervantes. I like magic so I'm looking forward to this.
When twelve-year-old Izzy discovers a beat-up baseball marked with the words 'Because magic' while unpacking in yet another new apartment, she is determined to figure out what it means.
Taneesha: Never Disparaging by M. LaVora Perry. LaVora is a warm and kind person, and her book is turning out to be a real treat. Taneesha and her family are Buddhist. I know nothing about the religion. Learning about it through the eyes of a child is really fun. I wish I had finished this last month for Social Justice: Religion. I hope I'll be able to add the link anyway.
Underlife by January O'Neil. Last week I shared I need poetry in my life. Can't go wrong with January. If you're intimidated by poetry, try to let go of the days in class. Pick up this collection and discover how easy it is to relate to life when shared by a woman whose own life has been filled with love, loss and the chaos called parenthood. Great review at Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene.
