These are the books I read for the week of September 5th-12th. I read a total of 12 books which brings my 2021 yearly total to 271 books read. The page total comes to 3,338 pages read. I did have one DNF. I will talk about that book first and then go in order of the books that I read.

Conflict is Not Abuse By: Sarah Schulman

This is the book that I DNF’D. It is a nonfiction book. It started out great but she kept repeating herself and it read slow. I got her point and wished she would move on.

I gave this book 4 stars. It had a slow beginning but picked up. This is the first book in a new cozy mystery series. This is the 25th class reunion for the main character. Her husband has passed away about 6 months before the reunion and she has gained some weight and she isn’t sure she wants to return back to her town. She does go back and things start happening.

I gave this book 5 stars. I love reading her books on history. She makes it come alive and simple for the young children. I have been to Galveston and seeing the area now and comparing it to the picture she draws is amazing. I recommend that you read this series.
