What with covers and contests and all sorts of other things (ahem, Pink IX, ahem) this has been a relatively anemic reading week for me. Here’s my meager list:
— Boy Meets Girl, Meg Cabot
What I found so fascinating about this book– aside from Cabot’s signature lively writing style– was that the story was told entirely through different sorts of media: IMs, emails, scribbled notes on a menu…. A very neat concept and one that actually worked!
— The Crying Child, Barbara Michaels
I fell back on an old favorite for a rainy day. This ghost story, set on an isolated island off the cost of Maine, gave me chills back in sixth grade. It still makes me look nervously over my shoulder as I turn on extra lights.
— I’m a Stranger Here Myself, Bill Bryson
Short essays on the oddities of American life by a very, very funny man.
Now, despite the fact that I came home with whopping great piles of books from RWA, I’m off to the bookstore to buy myself the new Kristan Higgins and a mystery novel about a haunted guest house that popped up on Amazon recommendations.
Any other suggestions?
