READING
1. The Last Victim by Jason Moss KTM 2/6/16 [288 pages] -- what would make a teen want to study and get into the head of serial killers?

2. The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See -- I usually love Lisa See. This took me a little to get into this book, but now I am loving it.

3. I Am Potential by Patrick Henry Hughes 10/16/10 NF [227 pages] -- story of overcoming. Going to give to BabyPooh when I finish reading it


ALL YEAR: Streams in the Desert by Mrs. Charles Cowman

Greetings from a not-so-chilly, but only briefly I believe, North Yorkshire!
What are you reading? And what do you want to tell us about it?
Thanks!

 

so it's time to choose a couple more :-)
For my paperback at home, I've picked up Altered Land by Jules Hardy because it's the oldest unread novel currently in my possession. I kept overlooking it, so it's well past time I gave it a go!
And my next Kindle novel will be one that fits plum's January reading theme, Last Train to Istanbul by Ayse Kulin.

And I'm so pleased I didn't leave it any longer, an amazing tale, very impressive, leaving me with a lot to think about . . . .

Something much lighter next, Death Comes to Lynchester Close by David Dickinson, one of his Lord Francis Powerscourt mysteries.

Good weather for staying indoors and reading! (It's going to warm up today, with rainstorms on top of the frozen ground and piles of snow. Pretty sloppy, in fact. Even better reason to stay indoors {wry grin}.)

Latest reads include some that I've been saving for the next round of the MaryZee memorial Biographies of Things bookbox, which is open for signup now ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/549286 ):

Tupperware: The Promise of Plastic in 1950's America ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14747321/ )

Life's Matrix: A Biography of Water ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14813449/ )

And for the Wine+Food challenge next month:

Meet Paris Oyster: A Love Affair with the Perfect Food ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14759700/ ), mixing info about oysters with a memoir of the author's favorite Paris oyster bar. (Mmmm, oysters!)

My current audiobook is The White Road ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14582473/ ), a nicely creepy tale of adventure-seekers in peril.

 

This is a pretty good look at love in several variations...

 

About the Vietnam war. So far a good book but I am only on page 54.

 

I'm reading "Zami" by Audre Lorde and "My Brilliant Friend" by Elena Ferrante. Both are for upcoming book group discussions and neither one has been registered yet.

 

Irena's Children by Tilar J. Mazzeo
The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin
Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich

 

The stranger - Harlan Coben (my american thriller favorite author)
Tenebra Roma - Donato Carrisi
Both are thrillers : I read the first in English, the second in french

Two staring at 8
Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty
And
Pudding Up Murder by Julia Buckley

Both are calling me to start them.

 

Far Side Of The World by Patrick O'Brian

and

The First Tube : the story of the Northern Line ( London Underground) by Mike Horne and Bob Bayman

 

It's All Relative ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14813451/ ), a nice mix of humor, information, and memoir. I enjoy his style, and the recent boom in "test your DNA" companies makes it timely. (I've reached a chapter about such testing, and it explains a lot about the advantages - and the limitations - of the technology.)

 

My first time reading this author. About 50 pages in and fairly standard Harlequin fare.
