Good grief! I haven’t posted any reading updates since my SRT Wrap-up in June. Guess it’s time to do a little catching up on my summer reading.
First book finished was The Swan House by Elizabeth Musser, about a young girl coming of age after her mother’s death in a plane crash. She learns much about herself and her mother, racial tensions and faith. I think I’d like to try another book by this author. This counted as book #9 in the 2011 E-Book Challenge.
I needed something a little lighter after that so when Life’s a Beach by Claire Cook came out as a free Kindle download, I couldn’t resist. This is a quirky story about a 40-something woman, living above her parents’ garage, trying to figure out herself and her relationships. I already have another of Cook’s books waiting on the shelf. This was book #10 in the E-book Challenge. I’ve met my goal of 6 e-books and am well on my way to meeting the next level. The Kindle just seems to make reading so easy. 🙂
And I just finished The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry, an excellent, complex mystery. And even though it’s finished, I’ve decided to use it for today’s teaser.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
“My name is Towner Whitney. No, that’s not exactly true. My real first name is Sophya. never believe me. I lie all the time. I am a crazy woman. . . . That last part is true.”
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry, page 3.
You can read other Teaser Tuesdays by visiting MizB at Should Be Reading. I find lots of books to add to my list there. 🙂 Next up for me is Knitting by Anne Bartlett. Happy Reading!
