What a good weekend! I usually get up well past noon but somehow found myself up at 9am on Saturday AND Sunday! This truly NEVER happens!! I can go usually go to bed at 10pm and STILL sleep until noon.
Getting up that early allowed me to have hours and hours of uninterrupted reading time and still get a lot done. I finished my second Canada Reads novel, Ann-Marie MacDonald's Fall on Your Knees. Wow. I definitely didn't remember anything about this book, however the general "feeling" I get with her work was there. She's a fantastic writer but her books always leave me feeling completely unsettled. I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Or maybe both.
So, what to say about Fall on Your Knees. It's about family, endurance, discovery, and is wonderful and yet desperately heartbreaking at the same time. It's an interesting look into the heart and souls of some incredibly complex characters. I might spend some time this week taking a look at the reading group guide to see if it spurs any further thoughts.
I enjoyed Fall on Your Knees but I think I liked Generation X better-as far as Canada Reads goes. Now on to book #3....I think it will be Marina Endicott's Good to a Fault.
