It is a rainy and thunderstormy day in New England today. The perfect reading weather! I am smack in the middle of Stealing Athena by Karen Essex, a historical novel about the Elgin marbles of the British Museum. I was already a fan of this author, so I'm really enjoying reading it. Look for my review mid week.
New books this week are:
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale. This is a true crime story about a Victorian murder case and it looks great!
Mr. Fooster Traveling on a Whim by Tom Corwin, illustrated by Craig Frazier. A very interesting little book with fantastic illustrations that I received courtesy of Rachel at Doubleday.
The Crystal Skull by Manda Scott. Sent on to me by a fellow Library Thinger...Thank you, Thank you! I loved this author's Boudica series, so I'm looking forward to trying this one.
Mrs. Lieutenant by Phyllis Zimbler Miller. A novel about four young army wives in the 1970s. Courtesy of the author, thank you!!!
I'm so admiring of Marie at The Boston Bibliophile , who says she reads three books simultaneously. I have to read one at a time and I have a hard time stopping in the middle even if the book is horrible. Somehow I feel like I need to finish it, no matter what. I'm never without a book, though. If I'm travelling I always have both my current book and the next one on my TBR list with me. I would be lost if I didn't have reading material!
