I’m already picking up and reading things off my list because I unfortunately left my Kindle Stella in Las Vegas when I was visiting my son week before last. We had a great visit…and I got to see my darling little grandson, Jack, who is about 2 1/2 yrs. old.
Anyway, without my Kindle and the latest downloads of books, I was forced to forage among my own unread books and came up with these:
“Blackbird” by Jennifer Lauck
This memoir was even more striking and absolutely absorbing than any I had ever read. The horrors of Jennifer’s childhood are startling and so astonishing, one wonders how she had the inner strength to endure and survive. I loved this book and highly recommend it to all of my bookish friends. It’s a book that will stay with you a very long time. I’m trying to find her sequel now, which Barnes & Noble didn’t have last night…. On a quest… !
“Glass Castles,” by Jeanette Walls
I’ve just started this memoir again. I think I had read the beginning of it some time ago and put it down. Anyway, it’s the continuation of “Half Broke Horses,” and it’s another relentlessly good page-turner. I can hardly put it down to go to bed at night! Even if you haven’t read, “Half Broke…,” do yourself a favor and get this book in paperback. You can always read to prequel later…. It’s sooo good.
I’m continuing my reading on, “..Swans.” Another wonderful book. For those of my friends who listen to audible books while you stitch, this can only be great that way, too. But, readers, you’ll really love curling up with this one. Right now I’m on a section where the psychiatrist visits the home of our psychotic artist to interview his exwife…. very interesting!!! I’m telling you..this is a gooood book!
When shopping at Barnes & Noble and Books a Million: I wasn’t planning on new books, but there was a big sale….
3 of these and 1 free–someone I haven’t read and thought was interesting in our vampire hunting genre: Kim Harrison, a new author for me. We’ll have to see how these go….
“White Witch, Black Curse” “A Fistful of Charms” “The Outlaw Demon Wails” “For A Few Demons More”
And a few more Laurell K. Hamilton: “Blood Noir” “Harlequin” and “Narcissus in Chains”
