#currentlyreading – Mothers and Other Strangers by Gina Sorell

Happy Friday, everyone!

How was everyone’s week? We have ONE more week left of September – isn’t that just madness? I have an action-packed two weekends. Tomorrow is our 5th, yes FIFTH, anniversary. I’m not entirely sure what’s planned, but I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun πŸ™‚

Then next Saturday, I’m going to see STEPHEN KING!! If you know me, you’ll know how truly exciting that is for me (and I’m going with Leah ( @kingandcoffee ) so that’ll be even better).

So I’m cranking out this #currentread. (about halfway through right now)

MOTHERS AND OTHER STRANGERS by Gina Sorell (already released)

Here’s the synopsis:

“My father proposed to my mother at gunpoint when she was nineteen, and knowing that she was already pregnant with a dead man’s child, she accepted.”

Thus begins this riveting story of a woman’s quest to understand her recently deceased mother, a glamorous, cruel narcissist who left her only child, Elsie, an inheritance of debts and mysteries. While coping with threats that she suspects are coming from the cult-like spiritual program her mother belonged to, Elsie works to unravel the message her dying mother left for her, a quest that ultimately takes her to the South African family homestead she never knew existed.

 

And that delicious looking drink? The true “fall in a cup” coffee drink. I’m not a fan of PSL, I honestly don’t many that are, but this right here, the Campfire Mocha, is the BEST. It’s literally a s’more in a cup. Yes, those are mini marshmallows on top.

This is the perfect combination for reading πŸ™‚ what’s your “go-to” for fall?
