Sunday Salon: Current Reads

Finished this week:

The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy, a memoir, May 14, 2017. Kindle edition.
My thoughts: 
The plight of the modern woman is outlined in this memoir: what happens or could happen when you want it all - all of life, together, at the same time, without necessarily making the sacrifices and trade-offs required for more predictable, stable outcomes. Revealing, honest.

Still reading: 

I Shot the Buddha by Colin Cotterill,
The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian
Death at Breakfast by Beth Gutcheon.

New book on the shelf:

Mangrove Lightning by Randy Wayne Wright, Doc Ford Mystery #24, March 21, 2017, Putnam Sons

...a young single mother discovers that the nature of friendship is never what it seems..

I've read a few books by Randy Wayne White and enjoyed them but it's been awhile. I'll have to add The Rules Do Not Apply and The Light in the Ruins to my TBR. Have a great week!

I like the looks of Mangrove Lightning. A mystery plus a Florida setting- sounds fun.
