Wait! I forgot! There are just three more things I need to add…
The next week or two, I will enjoy my family, enjoy the weather, enjoy Michigan beautiful, and of course READ! This is what is on my list–and why.
But yet! I am AHEAD of the times because I have my hands on Twin Cities by Jose Pimienta and it is a gorgeous book. Flipping the pages, I note realistic urban landscapes of Calexico–a border town–and a boy-girl twin dynamic as each twin decides whether to attend school in Mexico or in the U.S.--and contends with changes in their relationship as they grow.
And The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson will be my perfect beach read. After all, it takes place in the summer, celebrates friendship, and keeps us in suspense with its thrilling murder mystery. I’m ready for it!
So–what is on your “resting” reading list? Whatever is in your TBR pile, happy reading!
