What I Read Wednesday

I only read one book this week. Partly because I'm so busy with baseball and school responsibilities that all crop up in May, but also because I'm still binge watching American Horror Story (2/3 of the way through Coven!).

Brother
A friend suggested this book and alluded to how dark it was. Although I am no stranger to reading the dark or the macabre, this book was very twisted. Michael Morrow lives in a cabin in the Appalachian woods with his family. So far removed from the rest of the world, no one hears the screams of the girls that echo through the woods, nor does anyone go looking when these girls turn up missing. Michael's parents, Claudia and Wade, have twisted tastes, as does Michael's brother Ray. Michael has no choice but to participate, but he doesn't enjoy it as the rest of the family does. As the book goes on, you learn more about Michael and why he doesn't quite fit in with the family. The ending was a bit abrupt and I wish the author would've told us more about Claudia and Wade, but overall, this one hooked me. Fair warning, though it is not supernatural, it does reveal to us that the real and worst monsters are human.

What are you reading?

I can't decide if I want to read Brother or not... maybe I'll wait until I'm in the right frame of mind.

This week I read Boston Girl and I really enjoyed it. Especially when the narrative "broke character" and you heard the grandma talking to her granddaughter in the middle of sharing her life story.

As soon as we finish up Breaking Bad, I hope we can start American Horror Story. Seems like a show a lot of people like.

You have me beat on books. I am at 0 for the week. I can't wait for beach weather to roll around. That's when I get my best reading hours in.
