    Summer Reading

    Greetings earthlings. Not much to report, so I thought I'd talk about books I've been reading. Most recently, I finished "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. Excellent book I must say. It's about a 13 year old girl who sues her parents for "medical emancipation", because she was born to be a perfect genetic donor for her older sister who is dying of Leukemia. After years of donation everything from chord-blood to bone marrow, she finally draws the line right before she is about to be made to donate her kidney. It's soo good with a great twist at the end. Totally recommend it.

    Second, is the final Harry Potter book. I loved this book sooo much. JK Rowling did an excellent job of tying up nearly all of the loose ends. ******total spoiler so don't read this if you don't want to know**********I knew H was a horcrux!!!! I think his scar should've disappeared though after V was gone...that would've been a cool touch! And I'm glad about Snape... I knew that too, but not quite to that extent!**********************






    Anyway, so the next book I'm just
    starting is called "A Complicated Kindness", by Miriam Toews. Jessi gave this one to me for my b-day. Here's a quote about it, "A 16-year-old rebels against the conventions of her strict Mennonite community and tries to come to terms with the collapse of her family in this insightful, irreverent coming-of-age novel" So that sounds pretty good! Would love to hear about other good books people are reading..I'm on a good streak so far this summer!

      The Kite Runner and A Thousdand Splendid Suns are awesome books. I can't wait for his next book to come out. Jamie, I have A Thousand Splendid Suns if you want to borrow it sometime.
