What I’ve Been Reading : The Home For Unwanted Girls and My Absolute Darling

I’ve been reading books very quickly lately.  My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent was a page turner for me. I was drawn into this strange world and even stranger circumstances and hoped for a happy ending. I read this book in just a few days and I recommend it if you’re up for reading through uncomfortable and unimaginable situations. Curious?

The Home for Unwanted Girls by Joanna Goodman was read in 3 days, thanks to my new reading chair. This historical fiction had me in its grasp almost immediately. The story is interesting enough but the whole part about the Quebec orphanages turning into mental institutions, and its orphans into patients, in the 50s was fascinating and sad. It’s a book I highly recommend if you can stomach a heart-wrenching story of abandonment and greed.

Reading anything good? I’m on a roll!
