Hi, all! Apologies for not being around much on the website recently. It’s been a bit of a crazy fall so far. But I’ll have more If You Likes and Teaser Tuesdays for you soon!
In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been reading this week:
— Florence King, Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady. I took a break between ghost stories to read an old favorite, Florence King’s tongue in cheek memoir of growing up in a rather eccentric family in D.C. in the 1940s. For me, it’s not so much what she writes as how she writes it; this is a woman who knows how to make the English language dance a jig for her.
— Jennifer Crusie, Maybe This Time. Speaking of tongue in cheek humor…. Jennifer Crusie is another one who always makes me laugh and read phrases out loud. This is her take on The Turn of the Screw, a ghost story set in an English castle transplanted to Ohio, with the usual screwball cast of characters. I’d read it again right away but for the fact that there are other Crusies on my shelf waiting for a re-read.
