I'm a 32 year old mom of two who loves to read (obviously)! I'll read just about anything - if it sounds interesting, it makes it's way to my to-read pile!

Currently reading

How My Summer Went Up in Flames
Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
The Cuckoo's Calling
Robert Galbraith
Shanghai Girls - Lisa See This was a pretty good story...it definitely gave me an understanding of what Chinese immigrants went through during the war, and also how a new immigrant might feel even today.

Through most of the book I didn't like May, but I thought that Pearl was too hard on her at times, not considering how May would feel about Joy being raised by her. Towards the end of the book, though, I started to feel sorry for May because she was obviously unhappy.

I wish that the book had ended with a bit more of a closing instead of a completely open ending.
