I’ll be heading back into the writing cave in a moment (send good writing vibes, all!), but it’s been a banner reading week, beginning with Deanne Gist’s Tiffany Girl, which reminds me, in the best possible way, of the young adult historical fiction I used to read back when: a coming of age story and a very detailed depiction of New York life for a middle class girl in the 1890s as she navigates parental issues, boarding house life, a controversial choice to take a job, and, of course, romance.
I also hit the mystery novel jackpot with not one but two Josephine Tey novels for Mother’s Day: her final Alan Grant mystery, The Singing Sands, and a stand alone, Brat Farrar. I’ve saved Brat Farrar for last, although it makes me a little sad to think that once I’ve finished this, there will be no new Josephine Teys in the world for me….
What have you been reading this week?
