February Challenge Check-in


It’s time for a challenge check! I made a good amount of progress toward my reading goals this month. Here is a summary of what I’ve accomplished in February. You can also check my 2015 Challenges page to see where I stand towards completing my goals!

2015 Bookish Resolutions

I accomplished only a fair amount this month.
  • Book Reviews: My goal is to review 90% of the books I read. Of the twelve books I’ve read this year, I have reviewed eight and have written and scheduled reviews two more. That leaves only two reviews to write. I have done only fair at keeping up with my cross-posting reviews to other sites. That is something I will work on next month.
  • I made slight progress towards finding new homes for my books. I created a Riffle shelf for my books that need new homes and shared with my book club. My plan is to give them a month to claim books and then drop off what is left at the library for the book fair. When that is done, I will add more books to the shelf. At least I have a plan!
  • I did not work any further on facilitating an online book discussion. I am still seeking another commenting system, so If you have a system you like and recommend, please let me know!
  • I made no progress towards making a decision about moving my blog to Wordpress
  • One bloggiesta done and another coming up late next month!

Book Blogger Organization Challenge

This is a very informal challenge with the goal of keeping our blogs organized and maintained. The goal in February was to focus on general maintenance; updating old reviews and contact info, cleaning up missing images and broken links, etc. I did nothing towards this, although I did do some minor cleanup in January when I attempted to add Disqus to my blog and ended up playing with the layout. I also managed to get my review index up to date.

2105 Goodreads Reading Challenge

I read six books in February.

2015 Mount TBR Challenge

I read only one book from my own shelf

2015 Historical Fiction Challenge

I read two historical fiction novels

2015 Goodreads Choice Awards

I read one book for this challenge

Review: Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night

Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night

Here is a synopsis of Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night from Goodreads

Almost everyone in town blames eight-year-old Violet Morgan for the death of her nine-year-old sister, Daisy. Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night opens on September 4, 1913, two months after the Fourth of July tragedy. Owen, the girls' father, "turns to drink" and abandons his family. Their mother Grace falls victim to the seductive powers of Grief, an imagined figure who has seduced her off-and-on since childhood. Violet forms an unlikely friendship with Stanley Adamski, a motherless outcast who works in the mines as a breaker boy.

During an unexpected blizzard, Grace goes into premature labor at home and is forced to rely on Violet, while Owen is "off being saved" at a Billy Sunday Revival.

Inspired by a haunting family story, Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night blends real life incidents with fiction to show how grace can be found in the midst of tragedy.

My Review

This one reminded me very much of Playing Saint Barbara by Marian Szczepanski. Both are stories a immigrant coal mining families set in Pennsylvania and the hard lives they leave, and I enjoyed both very much. One very big difference though is the fathers of the main characters. Fin, the father in Playing Saint Barbara, was a very unlikeable character who was abusive towards his family. Owen, the father in Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night, while flawed, is a very likeable character. While he is having personal issues coping with his grief, he never loses sight of his obligation to provide for his family.

Sing In The Morning, Cry At Night is a story of how this family copes with the aftermath of a tragic accident. The oldest child, Daisy, is killed on the day of her baptism and the entire town has an opinion on what happened and who is to blame. In addition to blame placed by the community, the family’s inability to communicate with one another about their grief makes coping even harder than it has to be.

Like all good historical fiction, I learned from this novel. It was interesting to see how hard life was for the common person back then and how dependent families were dependent on the coal mine owners for not only their livelihood, but also their housing. When a miner was killed or disabled, his family lost not only their loved one, but their home. For this reason, young boys were often sent to the mines at an early age as ‘replacement’ workers. I also got a glimpse into the evangelism of the early twentieth century. I had heard of Billy Sunday, but didn’t really know much about him, and I’m not even sure I realized he was a real person. Interestingly, the book I am reading now also talks of Billy Sunday.

This one will make a good book club selection with topics ranging from coal mining conditions past and present, as well as how people deal with grief. You can find a Reader’s guide on the author’s website here. There is a fascinating Pinterest board with photos and items related to the book here. You can also view a video of the author introducing her book below.

Waiting On Wednesday: Inside The O'Briens


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

Inside The O’Briens
by Lisa Genova
Expected Publication Date: April 7, 2015
Synopsis from Goodreads

From award-winning, New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova comes a powerful new novel that does for Huntington’s Disease what her debut Still Alice did for Alzheimer’s.

Joe O’Brien is a forty-four-year-old police officer from the Irish Catholic neighborhood of Charlestown, Massachusetts. A devoted husband, proud father of four children in their twenties, and respected officer, Joe begins experiencing bouts of disorganized thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and strange, involuntary movements. He initially attributes these episodes to the stress of his job, but as these symptoms worsen, he agrees to see a neurologist and is handed a diagnosis that will change his and his family’s lives forever: Huntington’s Disease.

Huntington’s is a lethal neurodegenerative disease with no treatment and no cure. Each of Joe’s four children has a 50 percent chance of inheriting their father’s disease, and a simple blood test can reveal their genetic fate. While watching her potential future in her father’s escalating symptoms, twenty-one-year-old daughter Katie struggles with the questions this test imposes on her young adult life. Does she want to know? What if she’s gene positive? Can she live with the constant anxiety of not knowing?

As Joe’s symptoms worsen and he’s eventually stripped of his badge and more, Joe struggles to maintain hope and a sense of purpose, while Katie and her siblings must find the courage to either live a life “at risk” or learn their fate.

Praised for writing that “explores the resilience of the human spirit” (The San Francisco Chronicle), Lisa Genova has once again delivered a novel as powerful and unforgettable as the human insights at its core

Why I am waiting....
I have read two other Lisa Genova novels, including Still Alice, and enjoyed them both.

Review: The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane
by Neil Gaiman

Why did you choose this book? This was a book club selection
When did you read this book? February 2015
Who should read this book? readers who enjoyed fantasy
Source: library ebook
Here is a synopsis of The Ocean At The End Of The Lane from Goodreads

Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie—magical, comforting, wise beyond her years—promised to protect him, no matter what.

A groundbreaking work from a master, The Ocean at the End of the Laneis told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out. It is a stirring, terrifying, and elegiac fable as delicate as a butterfly's wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark.

My Review

I like the cover on this book and had wanted to read it when it first came out. So I was very happy when my book club made it a selection for 2015! The book got quite a bit of hype when it came out, and gets very good ratings overall. It was even the winner in the ‘Fantasy’ category for the 2013 Goodreads Choice Awards. So I was a little surprised by how low this book rated with me.

I’m not sure what it is that I didn’t like about the book, but I just didn’t like it. I was never able to feel a connection to the main character, a nameless boy of about 7. I really couldn’t connect to any other character either, though I did like Lettie, the girl at the end of the lane who befriends nameless boy. I didn’t like the way her story was left hanging, though. Really, I’m not sure what I just read. At our book club, the point was made that this is supposed to be an elegiac fable, meaning it is a sorrowful tale with a moral, or lesson, to be learned. If that was the case, the lesson flew right over my head, along with Ursala Monkton (the evil being in the story), because I don’t feel like I learned anything from this!

I enjoy fantasy. Give me a fairy tale like Peter Pan or Cinderella and I’ll love it. I also love Harry Potter or Percy Jackson books! But there is a certain type fantasy I don’t enjoy, and while I’m not sure how to classify it, this book falls into that nameless category. Another book that falls into the same nameless category, which I also read for book club and did not enjoy, is Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ranson Riggs. But at least that one had some interesting pictures!

There are discussion questions at the end of the book, if your book club chooses to read this one. You can also see Neil Gaiman answer questions a book club might ask him in the video below

Review: The Long and Faraway Gone

The Long and Faraway Gone
by Lou Berney

Why did you choose this book? great cover and I like the synopsis
When did you read this book? Feb 2015
Who should read this book? readers who enjoy suspense
Source: TLC Book Tours
Here is a synopsis of The Long and Faraway Gone from TLC Book Tours

In the summer of 1986, two tragedies rocked Oklahoma City. Six movie-theater employees were brutally killed in an armed robbery. Then a teenage girl vanished from the annual state fair. Neither crime was ever solved.

Twenty-five years later, the reverberations of those unsolved cases continue to echo through the lives of those devastated by the crimes. Wyatt, the one teenage employee who inexplicably survived the movie-theater massacre, is now a private investigator in Las Vegas. A case unexpectedly brings him back to a hometown and a past he’s tried to escape—and drags him deeper into the harrowing mystery of the movie-house robbery that left six of his friends dead.

Like Wyatt, Julianna struggles with the past—specifically the day her beautiful older sister, Genevieve, disappeared at the fair. When Julianna discovers that one of the original suspects has resurfaced, she’ll stop at nothing to find answers.

As Wyatt’s case becomes more complicated and dangerous, and Julianna seeks answers from a ghost, their obsessive quests not only stir memories of youth and first love, but also begin to illuminate dark secrets of the past. Even if they find the truth, will it help them understand what happened and why they were left behind that long and faraway gone summer? Will it set them free—or ultimately destroy them?

My Review

I don’t normally read a lot of thrillers, but this seems to be my year for them, and this is a good one! The cover definitely pulled me into this book. There is something about that font….I like the faded paint look. The fact that the story is set in Oklahoma City also pulled me in. I’ve been through there a few times in the past two years, and while I can’t say I know the area well, I was able to picture different places mentioned in the story, for example, I could visualize drive from Oklahoma City to Norman.

The story is told from alternating points of view; Wyatt, now a private detective, is the sole survivor of a mass murder that occurred in the theater where he worked as a teen. Julianna, a nurse, is the surviving sister of a teen girl who vanished from the Oklahoma State Fair just weeks after the theater shooting. One thing that surprised me about the book is that these are parallel stories being told at the same time, but very little interaction occurs between the two main characters, and when it does, it is relatively insignificant!

Both characters are seeking resolution; they want answers to the questions they have about the crimes committed all those years ago. Their quests to solve these mysteries puts them in danger at times and leads to plenty of suspense! There are enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages. But this book is not really about the mysteries to be solved; it is about the people working to solve the mysteries and the effects those crimes have on them even years later.

I really liked the character of Wyatt and especially liked his relationship with his elderly Uncle Pete. Wyatt is smart, considerate, and charming. Julianna...not so much. She is a bit self-absorbed and got pretty annoying at times. She was also prone to making some very poor choices, the kind that just leaves you thinking ‘did you really just do that?!’ It made me glad that there was little interaction between Wyatt and Julianna.

I did like the way the story was resolved, even though it left a lot of things open for the two main characters. If you read my blog often, you know that I am a big fan of epilogues. But in this instance, I didn’t feel the need to know what happens years into the future. The book ends with thoughts from one of Wyatt’s murdered co-workers and from Julianna’s sister, but for me, these didn’t add anything to the story and could have been left omitted. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and think that if you enjoy mysteries and suspense, you will enjoy it, too!

Waiting On Wednesday: Throw Like A Woman

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

Throw Like A Woman
by Susan Petrone
Expected Publication Date: March 24, 2015
Synopsis from Goodreads

Forty years old, divorced, with two sons on the verge of adolescence and an ex-husband who considers visitation to be optional, Brenda Haversham isn't having a whole lot of fun. She's also no longer qualified for the work she loves, so she's working in a cubicle instead while trying to make ends meet.

Brenda is short on money, short on connection with her kids, and short on any kind of social life. The only thing Brenda has in abundance is her anger. And that turns out to be her greatest asset.

When she was a kid, Brenda's father taught her how to throw a good fastball. That wasn't of much use to a girl, but it is enough to astound onlookers at a "test your speed" pitching cage before a Cleveland Indians game. The more Brenda pictures her ex-husband's face on the other end, the harder she throws. And when someone tapes her performance and puts it up online, Brenda becomes an Internet sensation – and then more than that.

Soon, the Indians come calling and Brenda finds her life taking a turn in a new direction. She finds herself standing on the mound as the first woman player in Major League history – and dealing with everything that comes with it. The money is great and the endorsement deals are even better. The fury of "traditionalists," not so much. And the conflicting emotions of her teammates are even harder to manage.

Meanwhile, Brenda's home life is evolving faster than she can keep up, redefining her role as a mother, a friend, and even a lover.

As the season winds down Brenda will find out if she has what it takes to be a winner – at both baseball and life.

A funny, poignant, and endearing debut from a writer of rare warmth and humanity, FASTBALL is a 95-mile-an-hour heater of a novel.

Why I am waiting....
LOL! Do you have to ask? Ummm….baseball! What little girl hasn’t grown up dreaming of pitching in the majors???

Tuesday Memes: The Bishop's Wife

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where you can share the first paragraph, or a few, of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Today I am spotlighting The Bishop’s Wife by Mette Ivie Harrison

In the predominantly Mormon city of Draper, Utah, some seemingly perfect families have deadly secrets.

Linda Wallheim is a devout Mormon, the mother of five boys and the wife of a bishop. But Linda is increasingly troubled by her church’s structure and secrecy, especially as a disturbing situation takes shape in her ward. One cold winter night, a young wife and mother named Carrie Helm disappears, leaving behind everything she owns. Carrie’s husband, Jared, claims his wife has always been unstable and that she has abandoned the family, but Linda doesn’t trust him. As Linda snoops in the Helm family’s circumstances, she becomes convinced that Jared has murdered his wife and painted himself as a wronged husband.

Linda’s husband asks her not to get involved in the unfolding family saga. But Linda has become obsessed with Carrie’s fate, and with the well-being of her vulnerable young daughter. She cannot let the matter rest until she finds out the truth. Is she wrong to go against her husband, the bishop, when her inner convictions are so strong?

Inspired by a chilling true crime and written by a practicing Mormon, The Bishop’s Wife is both a fascinating look at the lives of modern Mormons as well as a grim and cunningly twisted mystery.

Opening

Mormon bishop’s wife isn’t an official calling. “Bishop’s wife” isn’t a position listed on ward documents; there’s no ceremonial laying-on of hands or pronounced blessings from on high. But if the bishop is the father of the ward, the bishop’s wife is the mother, and that meant there were five hundred people who were under my care. I was used to the phone calls in the middle of the night, to the doorbell ringing far too late and far too early. I was used to being looked past, because I was never the person that they were there to see.

This morning at the six thrity doorbell, I shook Kurt. “They be wanting the bishop”, I said. I was already out of bed and putting on my robe.

My Teaser

    It was while I was washing my hands that I saw Gwen Ferris step into the bathroom and slip into the first stall. She was red-faced and I could hear her breathing heavily through the stall door.

Review: The Kind Worth Killing

The Kind Worth Killing
by Peter Swanson

Why did you choose this book? I just read another by the same author
When did you read this book? February 2015
Who should read this book? readers who enjoy psychological suspense
Source: Publisher (Harper Collins)
Here is a synopsis of The Kind Worth Killing from Goodreads

A dark and devious literary suspense novel about a random encounter, sex, and a conversation that quickly turns to murder--a modern reimagining of Patricia Highsmith's classic Strangers on a Train--from the author of the acclaimed The Girl with a Clock for a Heart

On a late flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Over one too many martinis, the two strangers play a game, one in which they begin revealing more and more intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his wife, Miranda--how his marriage has gone stale, how a week ago he caught her in a serious betrayal. . . . Maybe they were a mismatch from the start, he the rich businessman, she the beautiful artist. But what begins as playful banter between Ted and Lily takes a swift turn when Ted claims, half-seriously, that he would like to kill his wife for what she's done. Then Lily surprises him by saying that she'd like to help. After all, everyone dies, what difference does it make if a few bad apples get pushed along a little sooner than life intended?

Back in Boston, Ted and Lily forge an unusual bond and talk about the ways Ted might get out of his marriage. But Lily has her own dark history she's not sharing with Ted, a legacy of murder that stems from childhood. And Ted is keeping something from Lily as well--so as they move their plan forward, his motivation becomes less about getting Miranda out of his life and more about getting Lily into it. But as Ted begins to fall in love with Lily, he grows anxious about any unseen holes in their scheme that could give them away. And suddenly the two are pulled into a very lethal game of cat and mouse, one in which there may be more than one loser and more than one of them left dead when it's all over.

My Review

WOW! If you enjoy psychological suspense, you NEED to pick this one up! This is not normally my first choice in genres, but I had just read and reviewed The Girl With A Clock For A Heart by the same author. So when I saw that Harper Collins was giving away a limited number of ecopies of this book, I grabbed it. I have to admit, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. It took me awhile to get interested in the earlier novel, and once I did I enjoyed it, but it didn’t stand out for me. But this one…..WOW! It hooked me from the beginning and after the first twenty-five pages or so, I could NOT put this one down. I admit, I stayed up late into the night reading.

The Kind Worth Killing was so good! I got pretty attached to a few of the characters, which can be a mistake in a novel like this! And there were so many twists and turns. I don’t want to spoil anything by saying more, but this will definitely keep you on your toes, as you try to understand the role everyone plays! There are murders and deaths and schemes and detectives…...

The only thing I did not like so much was the ending. Just when you think there is resolution, there is not. There is no neat tying up of the loose ends.There is an implied resolution, but it is not defined. As you probably know, I like my endings neat and tidy, with an epilogue and a ‘happily ever after’. Probably not a realistic expectation in a novel like this, though, so it won’t take away from your enjoyment of the book! If you enjoy suspense and thrillers, grab this one!

My Rating:  ★★★★1/2  4-1/2 Stars

Review: A Sister To Honor

A Sister To Honor
by Lucy Ferriss

Why did you choose this book? I’ve been reading a lot of ‘Muslim women’ stories
When did you read this book? January 2015
Who should read this book? readers who enjoy reading stories of other cultures
Source: Library
Here is a synopsis of A Sister To Honor from Goodreads

Afia Satar is studious, modest, and devout. The young daughter of a landholding family in northern Pakistan, Afia has enrolled in an American college with the dream of returning to her country as a doctor. But when a photo surfaces online of Afia holding hands with an American boy, she is suddenly no longer safe—even from the family that cherishes her.
Rising sports star Shahid Satar has been entrusted by his family to watch over Afia in this strange New England landscape. He has sworn to protect his beloved sister from the dangerous customs of America, from its loose morals and easy virtue. Shahid was the one who convinced their parents to allow her to come to the United States. He never imagined he’d be ordered to cleanse the stain of her shame...

My Review

I saw this one listed a couple of months ago and couldn’t wait for it’s release date! I have been reading a few books about Muslim women lately, so I put this one on reserve as soon as I could. It is always so much fun to be the FIRST to read a new library book!

This one was well worth the wait. I actually lost sleep over this one because I couldn’t put it down. The book was an emotional roller coaster, centered around Afia Satar, a pre-med student from Pakistan attending a small woman’s university in New England. Her brother Shahid is the star athlete for his squash team at a nearby university. A major theme in the book is honor, and how our understanding of honor shapes who we are. Many of the characters in this book act out of ‘honor’ but we learn that different people, and different cultures, have different interpretations of the word ‘honor’.. We also see how hard it is to understand a culture different than our own, as both Afia and her American friends struggle to understand and accept these different interpretations.

I really felt like I got to know these characters and I worried about their fate. Afia was so sweet and innocent, torn between her love for Gus, an American student and teammate of Shahid, and her duty to her family to return home untainted by American values. Shahid was smart with such a bright future, and he loved his sister very much. He was torn between his desire to protect her and his obligation to redeem the family honor. This led to some tense moments when I feared for each of them! And just when I thought the story was coming to an end...it didn’t! There was a lot more story to tell!

This was definitely a WOW! read for me and I’ll be talking about this one for awhile. I won’t be at all surprised this December when it shows up on my ‘best reads of 2015’ list! This will be a great book club selection with discussion ranging from the definition of honor to family obligation and beyond!
