What I've been reading

The Song Remains the Same by Allison Winn Scotch - I've read all 4 of Allison's novels, and this one is my favorite. It's about a woman (late 20s) who survives a plane crash with no memory of her past life. Her husband, sister and mother try to help her remember, though selectively. They all have their own secrets and things to hide from her.

You Know When the Men are Gone by Siobhan Fallon. This was my contribution to Memorial Day. Fallon is a soldier's wife, and she writes short stories about the men fighting for the U.S., and the families they leave behind. It's a great look into the lives of the men and women of the military - their struggles, their hopes and fears, their daily lives.

The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I read all three and loved them. Still haven't seen the first movie, but I'll get to it. I convinced my 11 year old daughter to read them as well, and she's loving them. She doesn't understand everything in there, so there's some explaining to do, but I was glad to find a series that interests her and has a strong female character. Like most, I enjoyed the first two books more, but the third was interesting as well.
