A Spool of Blue ThreadA Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler was the story of the Whitshank family. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I would give this book a solid 4 out of 5 starts. It has strong characters and relationships. The story begins when Abby and Red start facing the challenges of aging and their children start pushing for them to get some help or to move to a retirement community. Determine to keep their independence and stay in the house, many family members move in to the house to help. Sibling rivalry begins to show in the close quarters of the old family home. We flip through time to learn the back sorties of this family. The book weaves together the story of the family dynamic, the love stories that brought it together and the secrets that it hold.

Lisey's StoryLisey’s Story by Stephen King

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lisey’s Story by Stephan King was pretty good, it was hard at first to get into as the character’s have their own made up words you must learn as you read. It was odd but creative.

Lisey is haunted by memories of Scott her late husband, a famous author. She finally takes on the task of sorting through his belongs when she finds he has left her a treasure hunt, her sister has a break down and a psychopath appears making demands about her husbands papers. Only by entering Scott’s secret world can see save her sister, escape from the psycho and find the treasure.
