Weekly Reading Roundup
March 12, 2012 10 Comments
Today, I’m not participating in It’s Monday! as I usually do, because it’s a meme and I don’t have the time to visit many other participating blogs today. But I love the meme and it’s a good way to keep track of what I’ve been reading.
Books I finished this week: 3
The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon. A beautiful story about a girl who runs away from an institution (and is caught again), her deaf boyfriend, and their baby, who finds a home with a widow teacher. 4.5 stars
