Well it took me the better part of a week to settle on another book to read after my Voyager foray. The final verdict? The Red Garden, by Alice Hoffman. I read the better part of its 270 pages yesterday afternoon in a single sitting, and I could not have found a better book to get me into the swing of things again.
I won't say too much, since I want to properly review this little gem, but if you've had any inclination, you should try it. Great book.
What's next for me??? Still trying to starve myself of Gabaldon for a little longer before I tackle Drums of Autumn. Of all the books on my shelves the two calling loudest right now are Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire and Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier.
If I choose Son of a Witch, I expect this to go one of the following two ways:
1. I'll love going back to Maguire's world and will eat it up.
2. I'll decide I don't give a crap about any of the characters besides Elphaba and give up.
On the other hand, Remarkable Creatures is a historical fiction novel, one of the many I've read lately, so we'll see if that craving holds up. I've already read a few pages of this one, and despite the long run of historical fiction reading, it is holding my attention so far.
Keep in mind, I could be reading something completely unrelated to both of these tomorrow.
Me = book tart. Moody, moody book tart.
Happy Sunday! I hope you're all overdosing on good books.
