Sleepless nights aren’t usually a good thing but they do allow me to read more than I normally do.
FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
The latest novel by Adriana Mather is another fun story with a fascinating connection to Ms. Mather’s ancestry. There is nothing remotely serious about the story, but it is still a blast to read. Ghosts, witches, magic, Salem, and the Titanic. What’s not to like?
Alice Hoffman’s newest novel was a bit of a disappointment. It has her hallmark writing style and beautiful prose, but the story was a bit dry for my taste. I didn’t connect with the characters as much as I wanted. I had plans to read Practical Magic after finishing this, but I think I am going to stick with the movie version. I like the characters in the movie much better.
The Alison McGhee novel is a beautiful novel about dealing with Alzheimer’s and the realization that we never really know our parents. Not the lightest of reads, but it helped me understand what my husband was feeling when he was losing his father.
DID NOT FINISH:
Still going strong.
Less than three hours left and I’m still not finding it very scary. I wonder what is wrong with me.
So, what are you reading?
