Happy Sunday Salon to you. It was 55 degrees and sunny most of the day yesterday and I hear that it may stay warm and sunny for a few more days. The crocuses are out. I cleaned and planted some containers and dug up some old bulbs. Will we have frost again? Will we have lots of rain? El Nino is playing havoc with our winter weather but I won’t complain. Having sun instead of a blanket of gray clouds is wonderful!
I read a wonderful book this week. The Rock and the River by Kekla Magoon is a YA novel I heartily recommend to anyone who enjoys young adult books. My review is here, I hope my words do it justice.
I am working on several more reviews and have started the new Tracy Chevalier novel Remarkable Creatures. This is the first Chevalier book I have read, somehow I never got through all the hype to read Girl With A Pearl Earrings but if I enjoy the new one I will add that one to my list.
I am also revisiting one of my favorite science fiction authors and his amazing novel in four parts, The Book of the New Sun. I’ve been meaning to reread this for a while. I’m not sure how I will review it, if I review it. Have you read it? Have you read The Book of the Long Sun?
What are you reading today? Have a wonderful week, wherever you are!
