Anyhoo. I've done pretty well with my reading lately, just haven't managed to do much reviewing. Hoping to correct that, this week.
Last month, I read four books which is a good number for me. Of course, two of those were for young people (well, I'm young at heart, right?):
Elidor, by Alan Garner. This has been on my TBR list for several decades, and I'm really glad the Once Upon A Time challenge finally gave me a reason to get around to it.
Nightbird, by Alice Hoffman. Her first novel specifically aimed at young readers, and a wonderful read.
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, by Rita Mae Brown. Number nine in Brown's "Sister" Jane series.
The Book of Speculation, by Erika Swyler. A librarian who's just lost his job begins tracking down his mysterious family with the help of an antique book sent to him by a stranger.
So far, in April, I've finished two books:
The Witch of Painted Sorrows, by M.J. Rose. Mesmerizing gothic novel set in 19th Century Paris.
The Fifth Gospel, by Ian Caldwell. Disappointingly slow-moving thriller with an inside-the-Vatican setting.
Liking it, so far; but it concentrates a little more on Rutledge's personal saga and a little less on the actual crime-solving than I'd like.
OK, that's the lot. As I said, that's a pretty good showing for me. So far, my reading for this year has been coming along at a fairly nice pace. How's your reading life going? Are you meeting your goals? Are you lagging behind? Have you discovered any amazing new authors? I'd love to hear about it.
