What I am Reading

The Glass Castle -- Half Broke Horses -- The Silver Star
by Jeannette Walls

Half Broke Horses is a 2009 novel by Jeannette Walls detailing the life of her grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. I love her writing style and the stories are phenomenal. I wish I had a pile of more books of hers to read. I look forward to her future novels.

The Silver Star (2013) is a heartbreaking and redemptive novel about a young girl who challenges the injustice of the adult world. 

The Glass Castle is her 2005 memoir. The book recounts Walls' and her siblings' unconventional, poverty-stricken upbringing at the hands of their deeply dysfunctional parents.

Relax... Respect... Enjoy... Keep reading... Dorri
