This week, I went on a Later Books by Jennifer Crusie kick, reading Wild Ride (which I would describe as a paranormal swashbuckler, for lack of a better genre tag) and re-reading Maybe This Time, Crusie’s take on Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw, haunted governess and all. The latter was absolutely perfect for this week’s weather in New York. There’s nothing quite like a ghost story on a rainy day.
Just as I was fretting about what to read next, the cavalry arrived in the form of a box bearing my long-awaited copy of Susanna Kearsley’s The Firebird (a modern/historical hybrid, going back and forth between the present day and the tumultuous factional struggles of the early 18th century). So that’s what I’m reading now.
What have you been reading this week?
