My current literary obsession:
The Twelve Tribes of Hattie
By: Ayana Mathis
This holiday provided not only some quality time with my friends and family, but also some much needed R&R with some good reads. Towards the end of last year I was definitely all business in the literary department.
This novel was a great start to my literary adventures in 2013. It reads a little like The Poisonwood Bible that I did a review on here. Each chapter looks at each of the descendants of Hattie. I like how the book shows how each descendant takes something different away from the same joys and hardships that the family endures. You get to know each character so well during their chapter and then it is so exciting to hear about them in subsequent chapters through other character’s eyes. By the end of the book I felt like I should start back at the beginning to read with new eyes because the story was so well woven in detail. I hope you find this as much of a page turner as I did!
