Even though I was complaining about not having enough time to do all I want to do, last week circumstances gave me a chance to do a LOT of readng. When I see books being reviewed in newspapers or magazines that I am interested in reading, I always make a request at our county library. We have a FANTASTIC library, I can do everything on-line except pick up my book!
First up, Laura Lippman. I read somewhere that she writes crime fiction, and being a fan of the genre I was surprised I hadn't read any of her books. I have now: "I'd Know You Anywhere" is a very interesting story of a woman who was abducted when she was 15, and held for several weeks. She was rescued, and her abductor is now on death row for the murder of another young girl. He contacts her prior to his planned execution, and disrupts the new life she has made for herself. Very interesting, and I will be looking for more of her books.
I came down with a nasty cold and resultant sinus infection, so snuggling in with a soft blanket and a hot cup of tea and this book was ideal. It really piqued my interest in vintage clothing, and I plan to find a store locally and have myself an adventure.
The books made it back to the library in time, and I was able to pick up my newest request: Gail Godwin's "Unfinished Desires". I am just on the first chapter, but it already seems like a winner. It is set in a small town in the mountains of North Carolina, at an all girls Catholic school.
