Again we had icy roads to deal with today so I stayed home rather than try to make it in to work (250+ car wrecks!). We are so not used to this weather. I guess it’s not really a free day as I’m using up my vacation time but well I’d rather avoid the icy streets and I can always use a day for more reading and bookbinding.
I’m making progress in some of my current reads so today I’ll just tell you about more books I’ve added to my reading list. Most of these books came via reviews from the Book Reporter newsletter and RT Magazine.
- A Walk In the Winter by Maeve Binchy. A story about a restful place by the sea. I’m sure this will be a good, comfort read.
- A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner. A story of two women who lived and loved in New York. The time frame is during September 1911 and September 2011.
- The Taste of Apple Seeds by Katherina Hagena. A young woman inherits her grandmother’s house in the countryside. Will she hang on to it and it’s memories?
- Where Monsters Dwell by Jørgen Brekke. A murder mystery with settings in Norway and the Edgar Allen Poe museum in Virginia. Two places I would love to visit.
- Thirty Girls by Susan Minot. I’ve read a couple of Minot’s books and have really enjoyed them but this sounds very different from her previous books.
- The Vanishing by Wendy Webb. From the author’s site: “A mysterious visitor with an intriguing offer, a centuries-old mansion in the middle of the wilderness, and a séance gone horribly wrong.” – oh yes, I want to read this.
- The Swiss Affair by Emylia Hall. I admit when I first saw the cover I thought it was chicklit (which I do read but not very often) but this actually sounds a bit more like a mystery.
Have you read any of these books or are you planning to?
