Book of the Month


     Hi there! It's the beginning of the month, and that means a new book to read! I chose Brooklyn by Colm Toibin, mostly because the film they turned it into caught my attention. I've decided to read it before I see the movie though, which is usually what I do in a book/film adaptation situation. I usually try to not hold it against the movie though, if they change things from the book. Also, I wanted to do a novel this month, since we took a break with a cookbook last month. I was looking at self-help and organizational type books for this month, initially. My interests wouldn't stray from the novels though! I kept looking at them more, so I just decided to throw in the towel and settle on one. Brooklyn has rave reviews, and it's really giving off A Tree Grows in Brooklyn vibes, for obvious reasons. This book tells of actual immigrants though, as opposed to the children of immigrants, so that will be a new perspective. I can't wait to get started! Happy reading!
