So, as you can see I haven't book blogged in 4 months. My reading mojo has flown the coup and been replaced by my creative mojo which you can investigate on my other blog Mia Sogni Dolci right there on the side bar. I have been reading, I belong to a book club, but I haven't finished several books because they just weren't cutting it (sadly a couple were netgallies) and I refuse to ever waste time on crummy books ever again.
Right now I'm reading and excellant netgalley, The Weight Of Blood by Laura McHugh. This is a really good mystery. I just finished The Orphan Train by Kristina Baker Kline for book club's January choice and it was a wonderful but sad story. It's all about immigrant children from the 20's who were orphaned and taken by train to families in the mid-west and for the most part but for the very lucky few, used as indentured servants. December's choice was The Old Man and The Sea by Hemingway, I didn't even bother. I don't like him and wasn't gonna waste my time reading about a stupid fish.
Some other books read for book club -
Looking For Salvation at The Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore, loved it
The Magic Of Ordinary Days by Ann Howard Creel, very good
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, excellent
Dreams Of Joy by Lisa See, ok
Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner, liked it
Hemingway's Girl by Erika Robuck, meh
Truth be told, I'm still searching for that one book that makes my breath catch in my chest and never want it to end. Does it exsist? I don't know, for now I'll read at my own pace, stress free not keeping a talley and putting it down if it stinks :D
