What (am I currently reading)?
I am currently reading the women’s fiction Pineapple Street by Jenny Jackson. This is being published by Penguin Random House around now – dates differ depending where in the world you are. My review will be up in a couple of weeks.
Book Blurb (taken from: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/ )
A deliciously funny, sharply observed debut of family, love, and class, this zeitgeisty novel follows three women in one wealthy Brooklyn clan
Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected old money Stockton family, followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood but giving up far too much in the process; Sasha, a middle-class New England girl, has married into the Brooklyn Heights family, and finds herself cast as the arriviste outsider; and Georgiana, the baby of the family, has fallen in love with someone she can’t have, and must decide what kind of person she wants to be.
Rife with the indulgent pleasures of life among New York’s one-percenters, Pineapple Street is a smart, escapist novel that sparkles with wit. Full of recognizable, loveable—if fallible—characters, it’s about the peculiar unknowability of someone else’s family, the miles between the haves and have-nots, and the insanity of first love—all wrapped in a story that is a sheer delight.
Why (have I chosen to read it)?
I wanted something light but interesting, and different to my usual genre of thrillers.
While (I am reading it)
Easter is fast approaching, and I am really enjoying all the decorations people are putting out. So much so that I have hung one out myself. Here are just a few I have spotted.
All the best, Emma of Emmabbooks.com
Love the Easter decorations, the first especially. The painting is so cheery too 🙂
