It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
Hey Book Lovers! Last week in reading was comparatively good. I finished 2 books but instead of starting and finishing Mr. Confidence I read How to Walk Away by Katherine Center which was a great read and was quite refreshing. Another book I read and reviewed was Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall.
I needed a little change so I’m doing Appliqué work to make a quilt when I’m in no mood of reading. I don’t have machine so I’m taking hand stitches which is taking lot of time but it’s going great and I loved the part drawing and cutting.
Mr. Confidence by Rahiem Brooks
MR. CONFIDENCE WILL FORCE YOU TO TAKE FINANCIAL PRECAUTIONS
When a wrongly accused man (Don Juan Jackson) gets out of prison, he focuses his attention on becoming a good example for his six-year-old daughter, who at her tender age has been terribly influenced by her mother and her mother’s many paramours. He plans to get a job to be a family good father, but his plans are derailed soon after his release.
His life becomes packed with unbelievable excitement when he is drawn into a life of white-collar crime by his childhood pal, Lex. They commit several scams and schemes–and Secret Service agents are watching. But with the money abundantly flowing in, Don Juan takes explosive measures to get custody of his daughter and to avoid another trip to the penitentiary.
Pulse-pounding seconds pass as Don Juan risks his freedom and fatherhood for the score of a lifetime.
Next This week-
Full Circle by Regina Timothy
Eight years after the 9/11 attacks, Samia-Al-Sayyid an Iraqi immigrant is living a quiet life in New York City after she fled her home to avoid imminent death.
She works hard for her cold, heartless, high-strung boss, loves her seventeen-years-old-son, and cherishes the close friendship she has formed with her best friend Susan.
Nothing can go wrong, or so she thinks – until the estranged brother she left back in Iraqi shows up on her door step. Then she finds herself in a cab, on her way to the hospital to identify her son, a terror suspect who has blown the city, and with it her boss’ husband, and her best friend’s son. With everything lost, she is forced to flee to Iraq where she confronts her past. Will she make peace with her past? Can she get forgiveness for all the damage she has caused?
Full Circle is a contemporary fiction tale of friendship, family, and hope. It explores the devastation of loss, the great capacity to forgive and the lengths our loved ones will go to protect us.
