FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
Colleen Oakley’s second novel is just lovely. Not only is it incredibly poignant and well-told, the main character is an avid reader and finds ways to relate certain portions of her life to things she learned in books. I love it!
The latest Greer Macallister novel is just a fun read. It starts out slowly with no discernible plot. However, as Kate gets more involved in the detective agency, the story takes off. I stayed up way too late one night last week because I could not stop reading.
A retelling of the story of Medea as told by David Vann? Yes, please!
A winner of the Best Horror Novel at the British Fantasy Awards 2016 is all I need to know.
So, what are you reading?
I am so glad to see you loved the new Colleen Oakley!! I loved that one, too. SO good.
It was just a very beautiful story. I wasn’t expecting that much from it, and maybe that helped me. I was just really impressed.
I broke and got the Bardo audiobook! but I won’t start it for a week or two.
I hope you love it!!
I can’t wait to read Colleen Oakley’s new book, and she is coming to Orlando so I’ll get to meet her!! I think I’ll try Lincoln In The Bardo on audio, but I want to take a look at it in print first. Unsure.
Have a great week.
I was successfully avoiding Bardo, but I’m starting to break down now. Too many rave reviews even though the premise does not sound like my cup of tea.
It is such a good book, but I do know someone who could not get into the audio version. I’m not certain whether she will try it in print. The great thing is that you will know very quickly whether the story is for you or not. I suggest checking out the sneak preview on B&N or Amazon and seeing what you think!
THE GIRL FROM RAWBLOOD (seriously? Rawblood?) looks interesting. I’ll watch for what you think of it.
Doesn’t it sound wonderfully creepy?!? I can’t wait!
I need to check out Greer Macallister.
Her debut novel was VERY popular; I never got around to reading it. She isn’t the most elegant of writers. Her sentences are a bit clunky, and her descriptions about certain things leave a lot to be desired. Yet, the story pulled me along once I got into it. I definitely want to go back and read her first novel to see if the writing style is just her or if she changed it for the novel.
