I am listening to the new Diane Mott Davidson culinary mystery, The Whole Enchilada, in the car as I travel to and from work. (Of course, now that I live in Huntsville, my drive is very short; I may never get to the end of this mystery!) I love these mysteries and have been reading them for over 20 years after my dear friend, Luanne, introduced them to me during my first year of teaching.
I am reading Stardust Summer by Lauren Clark on my Nook app on the iPad. I just finished another book by her called Dancing Naked in Dixie that was hilarious and had lots of Auburn football references which I thought were funny.
I just finished another book that I highly recommend—The Little Way of Ruthie Leming: A Southern Girl, a Small Town, and the Secret of a Good Life by her brother Rod Dreher. It is about the blessings of living in and being a part of a small town. Even when the tragedy of cancer strikes Ruthie, her spirit and love for her family, friends, and community shines through. This is a great book about sibling rivalry, growing up, chasing dreams, and learning about love and community. Warning—it is a tear-jerker!What great new books are you reading this week? Have a happy reading week!
