I’m so sorry, bup.
I’ve finished several books recently. First was “The Fate of Mercy Alban” by Wendy Webb. I was so excited about this one because it’s written by a Minnesota author and set on Lake Superior. It had “Glensheen Mansion” written all over it. Unfortunately, it was really disappointing. It wasn’t terribly well written, and the way that it was written made me suspect it was an unreliable narrator type of thing, which it wasn’t. There were several parts in the book where the narrator had the opportunity to find out the answer to the big secret and then was like, “But then I went and did something else.” Totally annoying. That said, I probably will pick up another book by this author, in the hopes that the next one will be better, because I love her ideas and the settings she uses.
I also finished “Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement” by Kathryn Joyce, and “Bossypants” by Tina Fey. The former was very informative and a little scary at times. The latter was by far the best comedy book I’ve ever read. I generally steer clear of them because I usually come away feeling like I wasted my time. “Bossypants” was pretty great.
