It’s been an eclectic reading week for me.
I started out with Wendy Webb’s The Tale of Halcyon Crane, which reminded me, atmospherically, a lot of one of my old favorites, Barbara Michaels’ The Crying Child, both set on isolated islands, both involving family mysteries, paranormal goings-on, and the ghost of a child.
From there, I went for something completely different and moved on to Jen Lancaster’s latest memoir, The Tao of Martha, about her attempts to channel Martha Stewart for a year (not in a ouija board way; more in a putting glitter on gourds way).
Right now, I’ve just started Lois McMaster Bujold’s Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance. I adore Bujold’s Chalion series, set in a semi-medieval fantasy universe (rather a la Game of Thrones), but I’d never read any of her sci fi before, since I tend to shy away from the futuristic. So far, however, I’m loving this one, futuristic landscape and all.
