The Atomic City Girls was a book for my book club in the month of June. I did not like it at all. It was boring and I skipped alot of the book. If there is one good thing I could say is that I learned something about our history that I never knew. During World War 2 there was a "secret" town built by the military. All of these young civilians came to work there (a lot of young women) but they weren't told what they were doing until it was done - they were helping to build the Atomic Bombs that were dropped. It's like a secret part of history. It makes me want to read more about this topic.
The Wood's Edge is a book that I started probably a year ago but then got distracted and put it away while I read lots of other books! I also put it away because it was a very hard book to follow due to Military and Indian names and words. BUT, ironically, when I picked it back up (with about 1/4 of the book left) I really like it because the last 1/4 of the book resolves everything. I was actually sad that it ended because I wanted to learn more about the main characters.
Whew! Seven books this month (and I have one that I'm half way through!). I've spent a few mornings sitting on the deck, eating breakfast and reading which has been great. I've also taken books to the Laundromat, the park, and to VBS (where I sat in the truck for 2 hours reading HA!). I truly enjoy reading and am glad that I've taken time to actually read some of the books in my "pile".
