Coffee & Currently Reading is a meme that shares both reading and reflection. I was inspired by my search through bookstagram. In addition to blogging, I adore browsing through bookstagram! I enjoy viewing snapshots of current and past reads from the community!
How has everyone’s Monday been? It’s weird getting back into the work routine after the holiday break! My husband and I spent the week at home…we wanted to be as safe as possible. I have one more day at home before returning to the classroom tomorrow. We have a half day all week, so I’m hoping for minimal stress!
Coffee & Currently Reading
Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich. I’m reading this book through the B2Weird book club. Every month they feature exciting SFF reads. Along with this story, members are reading The Fires of Vengence by Even Winter. While I chose not to read FOV, I loved The Rage of Dragons, Book 1 in the series. I never get tired of the selections given!
Louise Erdrich paints a startling portrait of a young woman fighting for her life and her unborn child against oppressive forces that manifest in the wake of a cataclysmic event in this dystopian novel. Twenty-six-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of a pair of Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed and uncertain as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant.
Though she wants to tell the adoptive parents who raised her from infancy, Cedar first feels compelled to find her birth mother, Mary Potts, an Ojibwe to understand both her and her baby’s origins. As Cedar goes back to her own biological beginnings, society around her begins to disintegrate, fueled by a swelling panic about the end of humanity.
