Happy Chinese New Year everyone! I am joining The Book Date’s Blog Hop: It’s Monday What Are You Reading? The book I am currently reading is most appropriate for today.
Red Eggs and Good Luck by Angela Lam is a memoir about growing up in a multicultural family. I am only a few chapters in and I can’t stand her Chinese father. It has nothing to do with his nationality, he is just a jerk and a thief. He has his young daughter beg a relative for money for braces then he uses it for his own interests like gambling. I get agitated reading it because I don’t like innocent children to be treated badly which is why it is taking me so long to finish. She is an excellent writer, I just am not fond of the material.
I also just finished When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. I was fortunate to win a copy on Goodreads. The author had trained for 10 years to become a neurosurgeon only to get a stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis. Instead of letting that stop him, he kept living and accomplished so much more than most do in a lifetime. This was a sad book, but it was interesting to see him change from Doctor to patient. I think this should be required reading for all medical students. I can see why this is on the best seller list.
If you want to know what else I am reading , here is my Goodreads Link. I have a Goodreads link on the sidebar, but whenever I put in my ID number it says error.
Penny was wondering if you could go visit her boyfriend Toby and wish him a Happy Birthday. His party was yesterday, but I think it is still going on. click here

Hi everyone, as you know I like to hop so I am joining The Book Date’s, It’s Monday What Are You Reading?
Back in November, I reviewed some of Jeanne Foguth‘s books, click here for those reviews. Her Sea Purrtector Files are fiction about cats. This book is not about cats, but there is one big cat named Kazza and that was good enough for me to want to read it( plus the fact that I like her writing and she is a wonderful person).
Star Bridge is a Science Fiction/Fantasy about a young girl named Nimri who becomes “The Keeper of the Peace” of Chaterres after her grandfather passes away. Chaterre is a primitive world that is divided into the Chosen and the Lost people. Kazza is the large cat that is Nimri’s pet and travels with her.
Colonel Larwin and his android crash lands on Chaterre. Larwin wants to take over these people, but starts to feel differently as he learns about them and befriends Nimri. Kazza also endears himself to Larwin. I won’t tell you anymore, but this is book one of The Chaterre Trilogy so you will have a lot of entertainment. This was the perfect read for me last week to keep my mind off of the loss of Stinky.
The e-book is $2.99 at Smashwords , but Jeanne Foguth has given us a coupon code so you can get your copy for only 99 cents. The code is: Star Bridge / 99 = TB54M .
