What a week! The toilet didn’t fall through the floor, and I am happy about that.
I finished the contemporary fantasy I began last week, Solstice Wood, and I enjoyed it much. I need to pay more attention to this genre. It was a good story, and Patricia A. McKillip writes so well. I understand why she’s won awards.
Now I’m reading The Writing Life by Ellen Gilchrist. Her essays are wonderful and are just the dose of non-fiction I needed. I found it at the used bookstore I frequent.
I’m well into Ines of My Soul, the audio book I’m listening to. A good historical fiction novel, and the reader is excellent.
In the used bookstore, I picked up a hard copy of Thirteen Senses by Victor Villasenor. Reviewers suggest reading Rain of Gold first, but I won’t. If I like Thirteen Senses, I’ll go backward and read the others. I also found a hard copy of City of the Beasts, a YA book that I considered for my friend Susan’s daughter. But the reviews are so mixed on this one, so I’m not sure.
Happy reading to all!
