FINISHED THIS PAST MONTH:
- Pocketful of Pinecones: Nature Study With the Gentle Art of Learning : A Story for Mother Culture ® by Karen Andreola - A sweet little diary set in the 1930s/ nature study encouragement. This was a slow moving story that went nicely with afternoon tea!
- Prep: A Novel by Curtis Sittenfeld - This book was in a box of books left at my home. It was a New York Times Bestseller although I have no recollection of it. It was interesting in the way it views the teen years from an adult perspective in a raw manner but also appalling in the worldly and shocking moments with no strong plot line carrying it along. I am not sure why I finished it and I hope deep in my heart that this is not the norm for high school students today. I would strongly not recommend it. There is too much in it that was not worth reading for anyone.
