I haven't read that book but saw the movie and it was a nail-biter.

I just started The Space Between Us by Thirty Umrigar. It is set in modern day India and shares the lives of two women of different classes and what their lives are like and how they are intertwined.

Started listening to Christopher Rice's "The Snow Garden" and made it as far as page 25 before the creep factor coupled with gay sex did me in. Plah!

Now I am back to listening the Ann Parker's "Silver Lies" where she seems to be doing a good job of working through a mystery in a silver town in northern Colorado in the 19th century. Lots to like there: western, historic fiction, mystery, romance.

I am really getting into Catherine Ryan Hyde. I have read most of her books back to back. I think I have only one or two left.

I have a couple of hers that I haven't read yet and a couple more on my wish list. Pretty sure I read Pay It Forward way back when and liked it.

I *love* that you felt like you were visiting. Next up: The real deal!
Now what would have made this even better is if you had said I read a big of last Night in Montreal last night in Montreal.

I was going to read part of Mahrie's book but I realized I was in the mood for historical fiction rather than modern fiction, so I decided to dive into Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon for a 2nd read. I only read a couple of short novellas since I read Outlander so this is weird for me to be so anxious to get into another book by an author I just read. But it sooooo good, how can I not???
