Reading for the Weekend (February 21)

February 21, 2014

Sue Monk Kidd has a new book out that is intriguing to me, because it is a fictionalized account of the Grimke sisters, and I read about these South Carolina abolitionists when I was in college. So I decided to first check out  Kidd’s debut bestseller, The Secret Life of Bees, from the library. I kind of can’t believe I haven’t read it before now.

“My chest hurt from feeling things. I wondered if T. Ray was pacing the floors feeling as injured as I hoped he did. Maybe he was telling himself what a rotten excuse for a father he was for not treating me better, but I doubted it. Thinking up ways to kill me was more like it.”


What are you reading this weekend?
