Swing Conversation...


They look like they are having a serious conversation.
Maybe about how much candy they will eat today.

Chasing Wishes...


Amazon Description

"I wish I didn't have to go home. I wish I was someone else—someone with a future..." 

For sixteen-year-old Nina Torres, it feels as if life is nothing but a dead end. Despised by her rich classmates and afraid that she'll become just like her drug-addicted mother, Nina's future seems to get dimmer every day. 

There is one bright spot in her life though... 

Sitting beside her one night, the only person in the world who cares about her makes a promise. No matter what happens—no matter how much Isaac's wealthy family disapproves—he and his girlfriend Nina will be together forever. 

Fate plays a cruel trick on Nina, though, and a visit from Child Protective Services the next morning turns Nina Torres into Irene Hartley, a woman with a future but who will never see her beloved Isaac again. 

Nine years later, a blind and incredibly handsome young entrepreneur hires Irene to be his personal assistant. Terrence Radcliffe reminds her so much of Isaac that she can hardly believe her eyes, and she's falling for him fast. Irene knows that fairy tales don't come true, but she allows herself one last wish. She wishes that she could finally say goodbye to Isaac and let herself take a chance on Terrence. 

What she doesn't know is that Terrence is also searching for someone: a shooting star who streaked through his life nine years ago, and he won't give up until he finds her... 

My Thoughts

It only took me 12 days to read this one.
If I had more reading time I would have finished it sooner. 
It was one you could read all the way through in one sitting if time allowed.
Kept me interested all the way to the end.
Would I pick up another book by this author?
Yes

Goldfinch...

Wow I haven't been by here in a while.
Here is the latest book I just finished reading.


AMAZON DESCRIPTION

"The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind....Donna Tartt has delivered an extraordinary work of fiction."--Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review

Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love-and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.

THE GOLDFINCH is a mesmerizing, tell-all-your-friends triumph, hailed by Stephen King as "a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind." (New York Times Book Review)

MY THOUGHTS

It started out pretty good, but about half way through I lost interest.
It seemed like ever time I sat down to read it, it went no where in the time I had to read.
I kept hoping it would pick up.
I always tend to read it to the end even if I hate it. 
I paid for it so I have to get my money worth out of it.
All in all I'm glad I've finished it and can move on to something new.
Would I pick up another book by this author?
Probably not.
