My copy of Shadow of Night came today! :yay Also in the box were The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty, Juliet in August by Dianne Warren and May We Be Forgiven by A.M. Homes. Such a fun surprise! Now I just have to find the time to read them!
I've had a terrible water leak in my house that ruined a big patch of carpet, so I now am faced with packing up and removing all of my books and bookcases this weekend so that new carpet can be installed. I'm happy about the carpet, but not so happy about the prospect of moving all of those books. I keep thinking this will be an opportunity to get rid of some books, but I doubt it will make much of a difference. I'm buying more shelves instead! :lol
The thing about going through every book you own is that you find all sort of books that you bought and really wanted to read, but then forgot you owned. ARGH! The "must read NOW" pile is getting bigger!
I finally finished "Heft" and while the ending wasn't 100% satisfactory, I'm okay with it, unlike a lot of things I've read or seen lately. Tonight I started "Floating Souls" by the local forensic anthropologist, Mary Manhein, from LSU. So far, it seems like a Kathy Reiches copy-cat, but since I know she's done a lot for the community, I hope it gets better.
I finished 11/23/63. I didn't want it to end! What a story!
Also finished How I Got This Way by Regis Philbin, which was a remarkable story of his life in tv and how each person chosen for a chapter influenced him and impacted his life. Reading it, you could hear Regis talking! It was written like he talks. He certainly wasnt an overnight success and worried about how his life was going with the same indecision and muddle that all of us do!
Dear God, the books are multiplying. I keep moving and packing them into boxes and there just seem to be MORE of them. Once again, I did not manage my time well!
I started Shadow of Night last night, but haven't gotten very far. I wish I'd given A Discovery of Witches a little skim before I started this one. I read it about a year and a half ago and I've forgotten so much. If only I knew where ADOW actually IS.....
Just finished Seed by Ania Ahlborn - really, really enjoyed it. Sort of The Exorcist meets The Omen in the swamps of Louisiana. I shouldn't have read it at night, it sort of creeped me out. And I'm hard to creep out. :lol
This author has a new book coming out in a few months, and I'll be getting that one for sure. I like her writing style!
I'm really getting into Shadow of Night now and am really enjoying it. It took me a while to remember the first book, but it's all coming back to me
I read Pure that was recommended here while I was on a quick vacation to see my sister in Chicago. Didn't like it at first, but got hooked once I was into it.
