I have very eclectic taste in literature...I usually prefer fiction to non-fiction, but I do like biographies and some fiction about historical issues. I like fantasy, scifi, historical fiction, human interest, mysteries, the classics, poetry...the list goes on!
Recently I have read the following:
- The Leopard by Jo Nesbo...the almost good replacement author for Stieg Larson of "The Girl Who...." fame. A good Nordic/Scandinavian author whose work I highly recommend.*****
- The Third Floor by Judi Loren Grace....a book that I read from my Kindle Fire (which I really love, not just for reading but for every thing else) This book took me back to a period of time I could relate with....a story about a young girl who becomes pregnant in the late '50's/early'60's (not sure which) and goes to an "unwed" mothers' home to deliver and give the baby up for adoption...I am not sure if it is based on a true story, but it does read very realistically! *****
- Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.....a book I had picked up at my church's book trade table....a theme of great interest to me...the Holocaust. Again, I highly recommend it!!*****
- And I am now reading Stephen King's 11/22/63...Yes, I am a Stephen King fan! I have read almost all of his books...he is, as you know, a very prolific writer!! I am in awe of his ability to take common, everyday events and "twist" them into tales of intrigue!! This "little" novel is 845 pages long and I am on page 246 so I will have to report back on it in a few days! The scariest thing about King's books, to me. is that they are physically dangerous! I read in bed at night and usually get very sleepy before I am through. I have been known to drop off and have the book fall on my face! With books the size of his, that is a danger!!!!!
