The book I am reading at the moment isΒ Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler. Set primarily in small-town Wisconsin, it traces the stories of four people, Ronny, Lee, Kip and Henry, who grew up together and were boyhood friends. Now adults, their lives have diverged onto four very different paths but their shared past links them together, including old rivalries which threaten to reappear. I am only half-way through this novel and so far, it is an engaging read which is making me want to read on. The characters in this story seem very real and authentic and the author has a gift for portraying the nuances of friendship and loyalty.

    • If you right-click on the badge, a little box should pop up with options including “Save as….” You can save the badge onto your computer and then upload it as an image in your WordPress post (click “Add Media”, then select file)

      If it’s too much trouble, don’t worry about it. You don’t have to use the badge.

      Thanks. It’s a good read so far. πŸ™‚
