  What I'm currently reading: 

 
Blurb from Goodreads:
 
Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that are about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons. Told in Dinah's voice, this novel reveals the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of her mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past. Deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women's society.

-- One of the reasons I love working at library: The book recommendations! This was recommended to my by my boss (head librarian). I started it last night while my husband was studying and got sucked in. I can't wait to continue!


What Did you Recently Finish?

 
Blurb from Goodreads:
 
Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson's acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.

Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?

    1. I know! I can't wait for it either. Yes, I didn't know it was a movie until my boss recommended the book to me. She then told me she was so excited for the movie. I'll most likely finish the book tomorrow! Glad you like my blog name!

  3. I am curious about Ignite but I wasn't a huge fan of Defy, so I don't know.

    1. I wasn't a big fan of Defy but I won an ARC of Ignite from Goodreads. I was trying to force myself to start a series. So... I had to make myself read Ignite after not caring for Defy. I was surprised that it was better. Still not one of my favorites but an improvement!
