2016 Book Reports (Issue #4)

This is my view, most mornings, from the kitchen table, where I like to sit with my coffee and my laptop and do this fun thing we call writing. When it's warm enough I open the windows a crack and enjoy the birdsong (and occasionally the dogbark). I have a study, but right now the place is in desperate need of some general housekeeping, i.e., there is stuff everywhere that needs to be sorted, organized, and either put or thrown away. One of these days I may get up the gumption to do just that. For now, I'm sitting at the kitchen table, enjoying the view, and posting my 2016 "A list".

I'm currently reading The Book of Life, the third and final book of the All Souls Trilogy, and loving it just as much as the first two. As you can see, I definitely loved the Blackmoore Sisters stories--as a matter of fact, I binge-read them on Kindle in something like three days. Entertaining stuff.

The Genevieve Lenard mysteries were unique and well-written, and the Spinster series was just as cute as can be. Still in my Kindle library are books #2 and #3 in the Best Girls series, a nice bunch of romances featuring a nice bunch of colorful characters.

Unlike my otherwise HP-loving offspring, I enjoyed reading The Cursed Child, not because it was Harry Potter but because it was so different and yet so much like the original series. JK Rowling is an amazing writer, no question.

Next post I'll share the four absolute best books I read last year. In the meantime, read a book. It's good for you.
