I only finished one book this past week. I also began a second book. So, here are some brief recaps of what I read!
I started reading Hollow City, by Ransom Riggs. This is the second book in the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series. I am struggling to get into it for sure. I loved the first one. However, this installment is taking a long time to delve into the action of the story. I ended up setting it aside around page 80. At least set aside for now. I find that I need something a bit more right now in my reading life. Hopefully, I will pick it up again in a week or so.
I started and finished Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson in about 24 hours. This book follows Kate through a very challenging time in her senior year. A house fire, surprising revelations, and the internal crumbling of Kate’s world all mix together to form a compelling read. You know you’ve found a good book when you cry through half of it, but still keep reading. If you haven’t read a Laurie Halse Anderson book, I highly recommend Catalyst. It really hit home for me.
