Welcome to my Friday Reading Journal-on Saturday! Reading Journal is for the books that I've read recently that I'm not planning on doing a formal review for and wanted to give a few thoughts/impressions on them.
Up first: Katherine by Anya Seton
Once I got past that bit I slowly warmed up to the relationship between John and Katherine. One other thing that bugged me about the book (even though I loved pretty much everything else): By the time John decides to make Katherine an honest woman it seems like a consolation prize at that point. They were only married for 3 years before he died! I really thought this book was going to be my first 5 star read of the year but those 2 things bothered me enough to give it a four. Wonderful read though and I'm glad I have Seton's Green Darkness, Avalon, Devil Water, and Winthrop Woman on my shelf because I really want to read more of her work soon!
Next up: State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
Next: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
And those are my rambling thoughts on my 3 most recent non-review reads. I picked up A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash and The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill so I should have a reading journal coming up on those in the near future.
