Musing Mondays (June 16)

June 16, 2014

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing:

I’m currently desperate to get my hands on a copy of “This Is How I’d Love You” by Hazel Woods. Here’s the description:

WoodsHazel_ThisIsHowIdLoveYouAs the Great War rages, an independent young woman struggles to sustain love—and life—through the power of words.
 
It’s 1917 and America is on the brink of World War I. After Hensley Dench’s father is forced to resign from the New York Times for his anti-war writings, she finds herself expelled from the life she loves and the future she thought she would have. Instead, Hensley is transplanted to New Mexico, where her father has taken a job overseeing a gold mine. Driven by loneliness, Hensley hijacks her father’s correspondence with Charles Reid, a young American medic with whom her father plays chess via post. Hensley secretly begins her own exchange with Charles, but looming tragedy threatens them both, and—when everything turns against them—will their words be enough to beat the odds?

Sounds soooo good!

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your answer in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

    I had to add that to my wishlist!! Speaking of wishlists, that’s what my musing is about: http://www.kwizgiver.com/2014/06/musing-mondays_16.html

  3. My reading habits are obsessive…I have to read to stay alive.
    I recently bought The Great War by Jeremy Paxman, for my husband for Fathers Day; and for my
    self Katie Fforde The perfect match. because I love her writing, and she is going to be a speaker at the New Books readers day. I currently want to get my hands on Santa Montefiore’s The secret s of the lighthouse..
    My bookish rant is about the cuts they are making to public libraries, and school libraries. I am a retired librarian, who worked with children, and older people, and know how vital the service is; my husband works in a learning resource centre, at a six form defence college, and feels equally strongly. Rant over!

  4. My Monday Musing is about my school library renovation/demolition!
    Jenni’s Musing!

  5. Sounds like a tear jerker, and I couldn’t help but think of Pearl Harbor the movie! >_<
