Finishing Up This Census-Taker & Starting My Name Is Lucy Barton

I thought that This Census-Taker was kind of an odd book. But, I did enjoy it. It was way different than what I was expecting.

What did you think about This Census-Taker?

Was it what you were expecting?
Our next book is My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout. We will be starting it Wednesday June 1st and ending on Wednesday June 15th.

Synopsis From Goodreads: Lucy Barton is recovering slowly from what should have been a simple operation. Her mother, to whom she hasn’t spoken for many years, comes to see her. Gentle gossip about people from Lucy’s childhood in Amgash, Illinois, seems to reconnect them, but just below the surface lie the tension and longing that have informed every aspect of Lucy’s life: her escape from her troubled family, her desire to become a writer, her marriage, her love for her two daughters. Knitting this powerful narrative together is the brilliant storytelling voice of Lucy herself: keenly observant, deeply human, and truly unforgettable.
