I recently realized I have been terribly remiss in posting about my latest literary adventures. My last book entry was about Dewey, back in April. I’ve gone through a dozen books since then, and I’m almost done with the next one. A couple were re-reads (Harry Potter 6 and 7); three were mindless adventure/suspense novels (Atlantis, David Gibbons; Utopia, Lincoln Child; Blasphemy, Douglas Preston); three had a little more depth to them (Driftwood Summer, Patti Callahan Henry; My Best Friend’s Girl, Dorothy Koomson; Sarah’s Key, Tatiana De Rosnay); and the other four were the Twilight series. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the Twilight books; Stephenie Meyer created a world of fantasy into which I completely escaped.
I’m now reading The Wednesday Sisters, by Meg Waite Clayton. The concept is good (four middle-aged women in the 60s and 70s forming friendships with each other and balancing their husbands, children, and life in general with aspirations to become writers), but I find myself not really caring about any of the characters. It’s worth reading, but I’m already thinking about what my next selection will be!

The pic really doesn't do the sky justice, though; it was SO dark and creepy looking!

I wish I had been home to see this little guy in person!
