Couldn't get into the other two books of the Appleseed Creek Amish mystery series by Amanda Flower so now I'm reading Roanoke Vanishing (The Vanishing Series Book 1) by Auburn Seal and I am enjoying this historical mystery.

Well, The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing and All the Light we Cannot See are waiting for me at the library. I'm going to return The Casual Vacancy so I can start one of those. I may return to it one day as the writing was good, but it was a little on the boring side.

It will last, Dawn. This book is marvelous. Thank you, thank you.

I do love the Kellermans. Have you read any of Faye Kellerman's books? They are equally as good as Jonathan's, IMO.

I really enjoyed The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing. It is the author's first novel and I'm always amazed that their first can be that good. Then they often disappoint me with their next book, but that's a whole other story.

Re: Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante

You're welcome, you're welcome!

I'm reading it slowly, in part because it's choppy (and not in a bad way -- it's a good choppy) and in part because the subject is draining (as it's meant to be) so I put it down and do other things just to relax my brain. I'm truly enjoying it, though, even though it's such a tough subject for me -- I keep thinking about my grandmother, and what she must have gone through and felt.

I'm currently reading both "Anne of Windy Poplars" (paperback) and "Undead and Undermined" by MaryJanice Davidson (electronically). I don't typically read two books at once, but I forgot "Anne" on a day I had time to kill so I checked out "Undead."

The Most Dangerous Animal of All: Searching for My Father . . . and Finding the Zodiac Killer, by Gary L. Stewart.

Very compelling. I finished this on the second day.

I just took a one month reading hiatus for no good reason other than I got busy and didn't have a "real" book calling my name (I did have some Kindle books on my TBR list, but they just sit there passively and don't shout out to be read). Having completed my self-imposed hiatus, I picked up Serena at my daughter's request and slogged through about 100 pages before flipping chunks of 10 - 20 pages at a time so I could get to the end. Interesting premise (lumber company in North Carolina vs. the National Park movement) with some strong characters, but the writing was flat and monotonous so I quit.

I am now several pages into The Art of Hearing Heartbeats and so far, so good.
