I am not having a great summer of reading. I keep getting distracted, and I finally started watching “Mad Men” on Netflix, which has consumed my life. I’m only on season two, so don’t talk to me about it! No spoilers!
I know, I’m behind.
But I started “Turn of Mind” by Alice LaPlante recently.
It’s pretty good so far. It isn’t quite measuring up to “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova, another book about Alzheimer’s. But it’s good. And it’s a quick read.
I finally had to give up on “Say Her Name.” I just could not get into it. I rarely don’t finish a book, but this was just … endless. I need to find a spoiler where I can read about the author’s wife’s death, which I didn’t even get to in the book. Don’t worry, I didn’t just ruin the book for you. I think that’s all in like the first pages that his wife died.
So, here I am, another uplifting book about Alzheimer’s.
