What did you recently (not) finish reading?

Bridge of Clay

The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. 

At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle. 

The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?

 

I got about 50 pages into the Bridge of Clay when I decided to stop reading. The novel will be perfect for a certain kind of reader, but sadly I am not that reader. I couldn’t get into the writing style of the novel and didn’t understand what was going on.

What are you currently reading?

Winter in Pardise

 Irene Steele’s idyllic life-house, husband, family-is shattered when she is woken up by a late-night phone call. Her beloved husband has been found dead, but before Irene can process this tragic news, she must confront the perplexing details of her husband’s death. He was found on St. John island, a tropical paradise far removed from their suburban life.

Leaving the cold winter behind, Irene flies down to the beautiful Caribbean beaches of St. John only to make another shocking discovery: her husband had a secret second family. As Irene investigates the mysterious circumstances of her husband’s death, she is plunged into a web of intrigue and deceit belied by the pristine white sand beaches of St. John’s. 

Another Elin Hilderbrand novel! I’m addicted! I love the change of scenery and how the novel is set in the beautiful island of St. John!

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Dream Daughter

When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970 and there seems to be little that can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that perhaps there is. Hunter appeared in their lives just a few years before—and his appearance was as mysterious as his past. With no family, no friends, and a background shrouded in secrets, Hunter embraced the Sears family and never looked back. 

Now, Hunter is telling her that something can be done about her baby’s heart. Something that will shatter every preconceived notion that Caroline has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage that Caroline never knew existed. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on Caroline’s part. And all for the love of her unborn child.

I’ve read some amazing reviews for this one! Can’t wait to start it!

  1. Sorry to hear that Bridge of Clay was not a good fit for you. I am glad that you are enjoying Winter In Paradise. The Dream Daughter is on my reading list too.

  2. Sorry to hear you didn’t get on with Bridge of Clay. Have you read The Book Thief? If so, was Bridge of Clay very different, perhaps not what you were expecting or written in a different style? I really loved The Book Thief and am drawn to Bridge of Clay but perhaps more on account of the experience of the first book.

    1. I’ve read The Book Thief and I loved it! I’m not sure what it is since it’s written similar. I think it could be the time jumping in Bridge of Clay. I was confused on what was happening and when it was taking place.

  3. So sorry to hear you couldn’t get into Bridge of Clay. I haven’t read anything by this author yet but I am curious about the books. Don’t know if I’ll ever get around to start reading them though, since they aren’t a priority haha.

    I’ve recently read Lord of the Fading Lands by CL Wilson, I’m currently reading Archangel’s Prophecy by Nalini Singh and I’m planning to do a re-read of Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare next

  4. I still have not finished The Handmaids Tale. It was my personal challenge to finish it this year after I DNF it last year. But I have reach the halfway mark so I’m making progress with it just very slowly.
