The Color of Water


If you haven’t read the book, you should know that it’s a memoir  – something written on the book’s cover but not a concept I took into account. James McBride does a great job on the narrative and goes into great storytelling mode when talking about his own life growing up with a white mother. The mother’s story is also interesting – but neither were interesting enough for me to finish. It’s a quick read; I got through half the book in a few hours. It just wasn’t holding my attention. So, it’s back to The Hobbit. This is my third read of the Tolkien classic and I’m enjoying it. I get to spot all of the liberties that Peter Jackson took in the movies. 

Hope you had a great weekend!
