Mailbox Monday and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? for Feb 8
So two weeks ago I announced that we got a puppy, and boy...has it been quite the journey so far. I now have another kid in the house! People take one look at my face and say, "Hang in there! It will get easier..." So it's starting to get easier and Rocky is getting used to our schedule and family life. :-) Mamma mia...
One new book in my mailbox this week! This one sounds so good. Just what I need...
A Year in the Company of Freaks by Teresa Neumann
It's 1972 and a seismic clash-of-cultures is rattling northern California. In the redneck town of Trinity Springs, rumors of hippies migrating up from San Francisco have residents bracing for an invasion. When Italian-American hometown boy and Berkeley graduate Sid Jackson is busted for growing pot on his deceased parents' farm, locals suspect the assault has begun. Will a crazy deferral program devised by the sheriff keep Sid out of prison? Or will a house full of eccentric strangers, a passionate love interest, and demons from his past be his undoing? A "disarmingly appealing" tale of discrimination, transformation and restoration, Freaks is bursting with intrigue, drama, comic relief and romance. Reviewers agree this five-star, coming-of-age classic "very much reflects the attitude and mood of the times."
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. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. 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.
