LOL yes, Dreamland was dark. So was Hillbilly Elegy for that matter. Maybe I've just been reading TOO MANY dark books lately! But Boy Kings is looking up.

I hate that I keep quoting myself but... yeah, I didn't give a [fig] about Not Giving a F*ck. That only took me three pages to discover. I needed something to wind me down from work, though, so I started The Second Mrs. Hockaday by Susan Rivers. I got to 10% before I was ready for sleep -- not because it was boring, not in the least; but because today needed an early start. (Hello, 6:00 a.m., how nice to see you!) I'll definitely see this book to its end. It's enjoyable reading.

Almost finished with The Woman in Cabin 10. As much as the main character bugs me, I can't put it down.

I started this yesterday and will finish it today. It is a wonderful mix of fairytale and mythology set in the Medieval Times in Russia.

I won her In A Dark, Dark Wood. Then there was a discussion with the author. Seems like a nice lady.

Thanks to you I bought The Shadow of the Wind. I can't wait for it to get here and put it at the top of the pile! When I looked at it after reading what you wrote, it looked like something I needed to interject at this point in time. Thanks for your post!

I hate to over-hype a book, but I truly love The Shadow of the Wind and will be sad when I finish it. Except I really want to know how it ends. Hope you enjoy it as well.

I have that book but I can't remember if I read it. I've had it for years.
