THANK YOU for the book reviews! I love that y'all like Cora's Heart as much as you do. The reviews and the emails are amazing and when I get one, I do a little spin in my chair. My chair is almost spun out, I'm telling you. Might need a new chair.
Randomly drawn winner of $50 book certificate: Anna, who's been reading me for ages and is always the first person to ask me "When is it coming out in the UK?" (I love it when long-time readers win things. Don't forget to sign up for my mailing list to be on the random win list! Sometimes I just send a book I like to a random winner! I'll probably do that again next week!)
What I've Been Reading:
Amazon links for convenience but check your local shop
The Husband's Secret – Liane Moriarty – I'm about 70% done with this, and I love it. It hits all my buttons — a slow, intent look at family life, a secret that blows up, and female characters fully explored and realized… I'm reading slowly to make this Australian gem last.
Love on Main Street – A bunch of people I know – It's possible that I and my friends made up a fictional mountain town called Snow Creek and wrote a whack of interconnected stories set at the holidays. It's also quite possible I chose to write about the yarn store owner. As I do. It turned out even more darling than I thought it would, and I had high hopes. I have talented friends, yo.
Human Remains – Elizabeth Haynes – You know that when I talk about books, I like to present a wide variety. This is nothing like anything above dark, and it's incredibly gory (I even had to skip over a section when I was eating a gyro, and I'm a dispatcher and not much grosses me out–I can listen to people vomiting while eating oatmeal). (Oh, my god, was that too much? Maybe. Okay, if it was too much, though, don't read this book. Otherwise:) and SO GOOD. If you like Gillian Flynn (which I do, Gone Girl not as much as Sharp Objects), you'll like this British serial killer novel.
