Strange Things that happened in the books I read
All three strange things happened to women.  One is kept in a pressure cooker, the second is possessed by her witch ancestor, and a last turns psychic and loses her “sight”.

Favorite Book of April:
 The Witch of Painted Sorrows by M.J. Rose
 A very unique book with M.J. Rose quickly becoming a must read author

A Disappointing Read:
 Ghost of the Mary Celeste by Valerie Martin
 It wasn’t a bad book just not what I was expecting which was more background on the crew of the Mary Celeste

Most Surprising:
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I started assuming If I Stay would be your average teen read, but instead I got a high-powered emotional roller-coaster.
