Time for reading

I have been on a little hiatus from reading, not because I'm tired of reading, but because reading has been difficult these past few weeks. Unfortunately, on top of bad morning sickness during pregnancy, I also get more frequent, more severe headaches. These headaches make reading  anything  very difficult. This pregnancy has been no different, thus the lack of posts.

My doctor tells me that the headaches should be gone by 20 weeks. That is still 5 weeks away! I'm hopeful that since my morning sickness seems to be getting better, that my headaches will improve sooner. I even managed to request a couple new books from the library. Here's hoping I feel up to reading when they are available. :)

The Messenger

The Messenger
by Lois Lowry

This is the third book in the Giver series. This was my least favorite of the three I've read but I still enjoyed the story. I was excited to see some familiar characters from the first book. It was nice to see how the stories are tied together. I thought the story was interesting and it didn't take me long to finish. But the whole concept was a little strange and so different from the first book. There was much more of a magically aspect to this book with people having special powers. There was a little bit of that in book two but this one felt more like a fantasy book then the first two. I'm definitely curious to see how the fourth book ends.
