FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
The cover is gorgeous, and the story is just as remarkable. It only confirms my opinion that Douglas Kennedy is severely underrated as an author. The Alma Katsu novel was definitely not what I expected. I did enjoy it, but I found the whole thing tremendously sad. I am still not certain if that is what she wants readers to feel. This is the first book in a series, and I am not certain whether I will continue it as of right now.
What a pretty cover on All the Winters After! I love it!
I’m reading a book about the Fox sisters who did all that spiritualism stuff in upstate New York in the mid-1800s. It’s interesting and strange so far, and I anticipate it will continue interesting and strange. So, a good read for a winter Monday.
Which one are you reading? I am pretty sure I read a book about the Fox sisters; it was listed as fiction, so I did not realize at the time that the Fox sisters were very real. Spiritualism is definitely strange, and I hope the book stays interesting for you!
42 hours? Ouch. I thought 21.5 hours of audiobook was tough this past week but yours wins hands down.
This isn’t even the longest audiobook to which I have ever listened. That honor goes to Atlas Shrugged, and some of the Outlander series novels clock in at 50+ hours!
I loved Ms. Halverson’s first novel. I’m listening to The Goldfinch and truly enjoying it. Reading In Another Life by Julie Christine Johnson and it’s very interesting.
Yes, I was pitched this one specifically because of my favorable review from her other novel. So far, it is excellent.
The Taker is one I’ve had on my radar for a while. I find your reaction intriguing.
It really isn’t what I expected, but I honestly don’t know how I feel about it still. I was planning to write a review this week, but I think it still needs to marinate for a little bit longer.
Hmm. I haven’t heard of the Blue Hour – definitely will look it up. I just started the Valley of the Dolls and I’m loving it so far.
Oh, Douglas Kennedy is an automatic read for me. I have not read of book of his I didn’t like.
All the Winters After has a gorgeous cover….hope you enjoy all your books, and have a great week.
Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
It does, and so far the book lives up to that cover.
Have a good one!
I went back and forth on trying The Taker when it first released, but there were so many mixed reviews.
Hope you enjoy your book this week!
I can see why. It is not the easiest book to like. I find myself thinking about it though as I try to determine if I liked it or not.
I’ve now heard two really good reports about The Blue Hours…adding it to my TBR list!
I just love Douglas Kennedy. His books never disappoint!
