New Series: Read This!

For those of you who know me well, you know that I read a lot. For those of you who are just getting to know me, you’ll soon learn that “a lot” is an understatement. A big one. I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, my mom would take me to the library often and as a grew older, I quickly amassed a large collection of books. Even today, as my life gets busier by the minute, I always find time to read - whether its on the T, while eating my lunch, or even just waiting in line somewhere - and I am almost always carrying a book with me. So, in an effort to bring my love of reading to this blog, I give to you, my wonderful blog readers, a new monthly series:

Each month I will pick a new book, let you know what it is prior to the start of the month so that you may read along with me if you choose to and then, by the end of the month, I will write a review. In each review, I will include not only mine, but also a few others so that you can get a wider grasp of what the book may be like. Please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments or send me an e-mail - I’d love to hear what you’re reading and I am always on the lookout for new reading material. 

The READ THIS! book for the month of November is:

From Alice Hoffman, The Dovekeepers is described by as follows: “Yael was born of a dead mother and father who knows how to become invisible. Revka learned silence when her grandsons lost their voices after witnessing their mother’s brutal murder. Aziza became a boy to protect herself, and hates being forced to turn back into a woman. And Shirah will do anything to protect those she loves from the horrors of the world. The power and violence of these women is evident in every word of The Dovekeepers. Hoffman’s prose is vivid and unforgettable, scorching like the desert heat, and will stay with you long after you finish the last page. A story of sacrifice, endurance, and above all, survival, The Dovekeepers is homage to anyone who’s ever held fast to their beliefs in the face of nearly insurmountable adversity.”
I’m looking forward to reading this book and I’d love if you joined me by reading along. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and that you’ll check back later for an afternoon treat-filled post (dog treats, that is)!
