Despite being interested and engaged for the first 1/3 of Interview With A Vampire by Anne Rice, I became bored with it and stopped reading it to try the next book 'The Vampire: Lestat'.I liked Louis in the first book and hated Lestat who ridiculed Louis for doing something so human as reading books. Then in the Lestat book it mentions several books he has read, plus he is a 'rock star', puhlease! So I put it in my book bag to return to the library, unfinished!

Then I started ~Crawlspace by Herbert Lieberman 4-stars
Enjoyed this one a lot. Nice and creepy, and definitely kept me engaged.

Now I am starting ~Saving Ceecee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman

Steel Magnolias meets The Help in Beth Hoffman’s New York Times bestselling Southern debut novel, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

I gave up on Fourth of July Creek because I needed something more light-hearted. I went to a library book sale and got a copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because it's been recommended on here so many times. I've resisted it for years because I thought the title was too cute and I thought it would be full of larger-than-life quirky characters with weird names which is a device I think authors use when they can't deliver the goods. Anyway, it isn't any of those things and I'm enjoying it thoroughly.

I Loved Guernsey….I hope you enjoy it.



Now I am reading I am reading The Kind Worth Killing which is about a man who meets a woman at the airport and they plot to kill his wife together. The book goes back and forth between her(the new woman's) point of view and the man who is married. It is interesting so far and has some twists. I am about to come up to one. I have my theory…now I will see if I am right, lol.

Ooh one of the twists just blew me away

Last night I finished "The Center of Everything" by Laura Moriarty, and didn't review it right away because it left me with so many things to consider. There is a lot of punch packed into this pint-sized novel. Finally, I think the whirling thoughts have settled enough for me to say this:

I think this was her first published novel and the writing was seamless. Her characters were true to life -- sometimes depressingly so, but not so depressing to force me to turn away from them. Each faced their life's deck of cards and played them bravely -- even those that cut and ran.

I think there is something to be learned herein for each of us. Ms Moriarty brings life's issues to bear in a manner that refutes "pat answers" -- letting them be seen through the "eyes of babes" and question our adult "truths." She shores us up with the knowledge that whatever we face, we are not alone but face with the help of our friends and family, no matter how weak or strong they might be.

I like that in a book and am looking forward to seeing how she grows through her successive works.
