Weekend Book Report #15

Wow I can't believe that it's been two weeks since I stopped and chatted with you guys. I can tell that mid-winter has set in. Not much to look forward to here, no long weekends, no real holidays for a couple of months. And here in Minnesota it cold and gray. Well we did have a warm up a couple weeks ago, but truthfully I think it just made it grayer, damp and foggy. On other news Squirms is working on popping some teeth in. We had about a week of little good sleep.

In the mean time I did get a couple of books read.

Envy (Luxe, #3)

The first one I read was Envy by Anna Godbersen. This is a young adult fiction book. It is also the third in the Luxe series. It's about a group of young adults(of age at the time) in high society at the turn of the century that live in New York City. It's not a bad read, actual they read quit fast. Three out of five stars.

A Reliable Wife

The other book I read was A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick. This is an adult fiction novel. Again this novel it set at the turn of the century. For the main part of the story is set in a small town in Wisconsin. And is about a man who place a personal add for a wife and the woman who answers. There are several twists and turns in this story. I loved it. Four and a half stars.

Well that's all that I have finished. I'm currently trying to read The Scarlet Letter. But I'm struggling. I find I have to really concentrate on the words and what they are saying. Something I normal don't have a problem with. Anybody out there that has read this book and came across the same problem? Anybody really like this book, hate it? Please let me know. I'm interested in your thoughts.
