Thanks Shiela at Book Journey for getting me on the Blogger Monday Reader Bandwagon. I am a bit of a voyeur and love seeing what others have on their virtual shelf for the week. As for me, I have an eclectic mix of paper and electronic feed to keep me reading this week.
Fallen: Out of the Sex Industry & Into the Arms of the Savior by Annie Lobert
From the Publisher
Annie Lobert was not so different from most girls, growing up in a small town and experiencing common struggles with friends, school, and boys. But her home was filled with turmoil, and at nine years old she was sexually abused by an older girl and as a teenager was assaulted numerous times by boys who said they loved her just to get what they wanted. Feeling unloved, used, and abused, she struggled to find self-worth.
Lured by the almighty dollar, and with a skewed fairytale view of love, she was drawn toward the seductive whispers and open arms of the sex industry. Greed consumed her, the money an easy remedy to numb her brokenness, so she began a new life with a new name–Fallen. Settling under the lights of glamorous Las Vegas, she became one of the most sought-after high-class escorts, fielding calls from celebrities, musicians, politicians, and other men with endless supplies of cash.
Heard of Hookers for Jesus? Then you may know how the rest of the story goes. This should be a strong story of spirit and survival.
Letter to a Future Lover by Ander Monson
LOVE this cover! And the essays after any bibliophiles heart should be just as stimulating.
And I always need some fiction relief…but my stack falleth over. Anne Tyler’s newest? The much acclaimed Wolf Winter? Vanessa and Her Sister? Or catch up with Karin Slaughter in Coptown? I never know what each day will bring. What are you reading?
