Book club pick week 42

What to read next? The never ending question, that I’ve been having troubles answering lately. So I keep looking to bookclubs, reviews and bookstagrams for inspiration that will draw me to my next read.

I happened to come across a review of “A mother’s reckoning: Living in the aftermath of tragedy” by Sue Klebold, that really sparked my interest.

Sue Klebold is the mother of Dylan Klebold, one of the Columbine high school shooters. This is a heartbreaking situation that I’ve been thinking of a lot lately in the wake of all the recent tragedies. Being the next of kin to the perpetrators of any crime. It must be more difficult that we could ever imagine.

“Rudderless” is one of my favorite movies of all time, and it addresses this issue and tore my heart to bits, so I figured I’d let this book do the same. I’m confident it will. And let’s be honest, when tragedy hits, we’re always curious and want an answer to the question “why”, we want to make sense of it. And even if we might never get the answers we seek, we won’t stop looking for sense in the senseless.

I also saw this disclaimer, and found it honorable.

“All author profits from the book will be donated to research and to charitable organizations focusing on mental health issues.”

I can’t wait to read this one.

A mothers reckoning
