What I'm Currently Reading

One of the books I'm currently reading (I always have more than one book going at a time) is taking me a little longer than I planned. Mainly because I'm halfway through the story and still haven't decided if I really like it.

I've been a fan of Chris Bohjalian's Burlington Free Press column for years. His daughter Grace was born shortly after my son. I remember spending countless Sunday mornings reading his column eagerly as I nodded and agreed with his take on parenting vs. mine. Our kids are now learning to drive at almost the same time, the only difference is while my son wasn't in a hurry to learn to drive, my 15-year-old daughter was begging to get her permit the same day she turned 15. Thank God it was Labor Day and offices were closed!

I admit I like The Night Strangers so far but I'm also struggling because I just don't get it. There are things going on that leave me baffled as to how some people can be so blind, but I don't want to stop reading either because I need to know that the characters in the book smarten up at some point. Maybe I'm just more protective of my kids because I work from home and they're rarely out of my sight...

The other book I'm reading grabbed me from the start and it's been a struggle to know which book to read. Bohjalian's book is on my Nook and far more convenient to take outside while enjoying the crisp autumn air. Sandra Brown's Lethal is definitely gripping though, it's just bulkier to carry around. Brown fans MUST buy this book though. I was hooked from the first sentence.
