Monday Morning Check-In

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

So one thing that would be fun to do is to let you all know just what it is we are reading at the beginning of the work week! ( I still think of Sunday as the end of the week honestly ) Feel free to let us know what you are reading so far and what you are thinking of it!

Sarah: Currently I am reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Right now I am not even halfway through it. Thoughts so far would be that I kind of wish that I had more interaction with Celia and Marco. I feel like they are going to be lovers and something tragic will happen. Not sure if this is the case, but it is a feeling I get. I am not sure I am huge on how many times this skips around. I have a hard time remembering years and I find myself looking back at the previous chapter and going "Okay.... Am I in the past or the supposed future?" I assume it's more like a call out to the whole clock symbology, but it messes me up sometimes. Regardless it is still interesting and I am excited to learn more about it!

Ashley: Currently I am reading, Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima. I am almost to the end!! That's a good thing because Sarah is coming over tonight so we can talk about it. I'm down to the last twenty pages!! There are still many things that I need answers to. And Tim (someone I work with that is also reading this book) tells me I'm one page away from big things!!

Paige: I am reading 2 things. First I will do Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. So, this book had a whole lot of hype, which is why I picked it up. Sadly I am struggling just a hair, and am not very far. There are footnotes and that tends to draw away from the story for me, even if they are a form of world building that the author is using. I will push forward in hopes it drags me in more. My second one is The Things We Cannot Say. That one is historical fiction, based around WWII. I am enjoying it quite a bit because one of the POV actually centers on a modern day mom who struggles with a son on the severe end of the Autism Spectrum, and I am learning a bit more about how that works. The WWII POV is a relative of hers that I haven't quite figured out how they relate yet. Still have a bit to go.
