With a Nor’easter howling outside the window, it would be a perfect day to hunker down with a book or two (if only there weren’t, well, life to attend to– hello, umbrella and boots!).
This week, I finally read Kate Moretti’s The Blackbird Season, set in a dying Pennsylvania mill town and the scandal that explodes when a teacher is accused of sleeping with a student. But did he? And where is that student now?
Right now, I’m reading another Sarah Addison Allen book, The Girl Who Chased the Moon, in which a teenager goes back to her mother’s hometown and discovers all sorts of secrets (and also cake). Now that I’ve discovered these, I’m trying to pace myself and space them out, when what I really want to do is gobble them up one right after the other.
Weather permitting (cross fingers, knock on wood), I’ll be hopping on a plane at dawn tomorrow to join Beatriz Williams and Karen White in our latest bat cave to plot the third Three Ws book! So there will (hopefully) be lots of lovely airplane reading time. What should I load on my kindle, folks?
What have you been reading this week?
