"Book Talk" is one of my favorite things to do.
I've discussed books while my daughter was having adenoid surgery.
I've discussed books with strangers on a plane/in airports.
I've discussed books with every teacher I've met.
Today I am linking up with Narci on her Grace and Love blog and sharing my pick for a good read!
I have struggled lately to find a book that keeps my attention long enough to finish it. This has never been a problem for me...ever! Maybe it's the to-do list in the back of my brain but it's been a genuine challenge! That's why I was SO happy to finish this book last night! To prove to myself there are books out there that I still love to read!
You may have read or heard of the book (now movie) Still Alice. Having read that book and really connecting with it, I was excited to see that Genova had another book out called Inside the O'Briens. This book follows a family who is coping with a Huntington's Disease diagnosis. Just as Still Alice follows the thoughts and feelings of various family members dealing with Alzheimer's, this book follows this family through Huntington's.
Is it an easy-breezy beach read? No. But it was well worth the time spent reading it and I had a desire to get to the end to see what happened. A first for me for a while!
If you read it, I would love to know what you think of the book overall! Feel free to leave a comment. I still love reading them, even if I am struggling with the perfect book! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
