Blech…I’m going to ignore how upset it makes me that my headline isn’t grammatically correct, and remind myself that I’m going for a “feeling” with it.
I have pretty much fallen of of the reading track since moving home. I purchased The Secret Scripture in the airport for the flight back to the states, which I forced myself to finish after returning (and I liked, though I’d suggest you wait until it’s out in paperback in the states; it was originally released in the UK, so I got a paperback copy for GBP 4). But other than that, I haven’t read anything.
So yesterday I realized how much I miss book club and the reading and discussion that goes along with it, so I ordered a couple of books off of amazon. The biography of Henry the VIII by Alison Weir (which I’ve been dying to read for the three years I was overseas–Philippa Gregory uses her a lot for her historical fiction) and then just something that had a decent description online (Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosney).
In the meantime, I’m grabbing Marcus’ copy of The Shack when he’s not looking, because it looks like it is right up my alley. I’ve only read the first chapter so far, but my initial thoughts are that it’s a good choice for me (and it has some similarities to my own novel…yeah…that novel thing…well, that’s another post).
So, whatcha readin? I need suggestions (and a book club, so if you have one in the Annapolis area, let me know!).
