When Ginny decided to stop doing the weekly Yarn Along, I was bummed.
I liked going every week to find good book recommendations and knit and crochet inspiration.
I am so happy that The Little Room of Rachell has decided to pick up the task of hosting!
This week I am listening to The Wonder by Emma Donoghue.
In Emma Donoghue’s latest masterpiece, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child’s life.Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O’Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale’s Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels–a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
Honestly, I’m not sure what to think about this book.
I am about half way through; I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either.
I wanted a light read, so that choice is A Slice of Murder (Pizza Lovers #1).
Not too much happens in the sleepy little town of Timber Ridge, North Carolina, which is fine with pizza-purveyor extraordinaire Eleanor Swift. The spunky owner of A Slice of Delight is trying to mend her broken heart and could use a little quiet time. But when a late night delivery customer turns up dead, she’s in for just the opposite in this delicious mystery series debut, featuring pizza as the prima character . . .
Sometimes, I just want a cozy, easy read.
This week I finished my BOOM! Shawl (yay! I’ve been knitting this forever).
I had one Caron Cake in Rainbow Sherbet.
I searched Ravelry to see what people had knitted with one cake and BOOM! Shawl came up quite often.
Plus, it is a free pattern!
I love it!
I love the colors and its is warm and snuggly.
Next up, Jennifer Ozes Carleton Cocoon Sweater (crochet).
I purchased this as a kit from Craftsy during a sale.
Chocolate brown yarn, not my preferred choice but it was one of the few kits left available .
As always, I am slowly adding to my Charlotte Square Afghan.
Have a good week!
