The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
CURRENTLY READING: Emily, Gone, by Bette Lee Crosby:
BOOKS FINISHED SINCE MY LAST POST:
I’ve been unplugged for most of May due to illness. Now I am eager to share the few books I read during the month:
Dreams of Falling, by Karen White
I Know Who You Are, by Alice Feeney
The Mother-in-Law, by Sally Hepworth
Those People, by Louise Candlisch
Mrs. Everything, by Jennifer Weiner
The Friends We Keep, by Jane Green: I just downloaded this book, and I’m eager to dive into it.
Synopsis: Evvie, Maggie, and Topher have known one another since college. Their friendship was something they swore would last forever. Now years have passed, the friends have drifted apart, and they never found the lives they wanted—the lives they dreamed of when they were young and everything seemed possible.
Evvie starved herself to become a supermodel but derailed her career by sleeping with a married man.
Maggie married Ben, the boy she fell in love with in college, never imagining the heartbreak his drinking would cause.
Topher became a successful actor, but the shame of a childhood secret shut him off from real intimacy.
By their thirtieth reunion, these old friends have lost touch with one another and with the people they dreamed of becoming. Together again, they have a second chance at happiness…until a dark secret is revealed that changes everything.
The Friends We Keep is about how despite disappointments we’ve had or mistakes we’ve made, it’s never too late to find a place to call home.
As I settle into my “new normal,” a senior living apartment, I am realizing that moving into a new way of being and finding new connections can enhance our experiences. This is my “spin” on the big changes in my life…and how I hope to carve out something positive.
Enjoy the week!
