The Latest Reads...

Haunting Jasmine by Anjali Banerjee

This is just a gentle, read-it-in-a-Saturday-afternoon kind of book. Jasmine is called home to an island on Puget Sound to run her auntie's bookshop while she travels to India. But the bookshop mysteriously moves books around at night, speaks to Jasmine in a whisper, and conjures up visions of writers from the past...

This is a sweet love letter to literature, bookshops, romance and a touch of magic. I really enjoyed losing myself in it for just a few hours. :-)




Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

I've actually had this book on hold since last spring, but our library copy got lost, but I was first in line when we got a new one! My friend Eric recommended this series long ago, and with HBO making a series of it, I made it a priority! Great, great, great fantasy novel - I'll leave it at that since there are TONS of positive reviews out there. I'll be loading the second one on my Kindle...as soon as I buy a Kindle. ;-)






Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by Syrie James

I absolutely loved James' take on Jane Austen's life in her previous novel, and since I've been completely engrossed in all things Jane Eyre lately, I had this title ILLed straightaway! This novel supposes bits of Bronte's life that are unknown, and it's easy for the reader to find parallels in Charlotte's life to intimations in Jane Eyre...and to learning more of Charlotte's eventual husband, sisters, brother and father. A really interesting fictional take on Charlotte's life - recommended!





 Strategic Moves by Stuart Woods

No matter how absurd the plot, Woods ALWAYS makes it work in a Stone Barrington novel! Another fun read, another great narration by Tony Roberts!
