I haven't fallen off the face of the earth--just a little hiatus! Laughing  New computer and aggravating problems every time I try to use this board have kept me away.  Anyway, I just finished reading Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult, and I am re-committed to her being my most favorite author. She is absolutely amazing!  I don't know how she continues to come up with these absorbing topics that make the reader THINK about so many things.  And I LOVE the way she presents all sides of a story (I think that's her strong point and why you think so much).  This one is about Luke Warren, who lives in the wild with a pack of wolves and also has packs in captivity that he's hoping to reintroduce into the wild.  You get lots of education on wolves and, as always, the impact this has on Luke's family.  If you have not read it, I strongly recommend it!!  *****

The agenda for this week:  Bible study, piano practices, putting away Halloween decorations, hopefully some painting (walls), and my next book The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Steadman for Wed. night library book discussion.

 I've heard good things about Light Between The Oceans.

 I'm not sure what I'm in the mood to read. It will be either The Lost Hours by Karen White or Mr. Churchill's Secretary. I've just started Key Lime Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke on my kindle.

I'm still reading the stories in From the Borderlands. I haven't had too much time or energy to read very much lately.

I haven't forgotten you all!  I've been busy reading among other things.  I ended up taking The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova back to the library even though I found the plot an interesting concept.  I will pick it up again another time.

I chose Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger from my own shelves.  It turned out to be a ghost story, but a family ghost story, not a spooky one. It was an excellent book!  I highly recommend it to those who haven't read it.  There is none of the jumping around like in her Time Traveler's Wife.

Just this morning I finished Bleeding Hearts by Susan Wittig Albert.  Another enoyable China Bayles mystery.  I really love this series. 

Waiting for me next is Thugs and Kisses by Sue Ann Jaffarian.  Can't wait to get started!

Yesterday I finished Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey. It's a great book! I'll post a review under discussions. Also of Lois McMaster Buolfd's newest Captain Vorpatril's Alliance, if I haven't already.

I've read a few pages of the very short The Ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen McCullough for my RL book club. We're also reading The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. Apparently McCullough plagiarized Montgomery, on nearly every plot point. Both are very short books.

I've just started Fury by Salman Rushdie.

Julia, please tell us what you think about the McCulloch/Montgomery plagiarism issue.

I've finished The Ladies of Missalonghi by McCullough and can't for the life of me picture why it's one of my friend's favorite books. I want to hear what she liked about it. I didn't care for it at all. (Our book club has been around for a year, this weekend.)  When we started, some of my friends were so thrilled to be reading anything again that they liked and put up with a lot! I'll tell more about the plagiarism issue, when I've read the first book.

I'm reading the second book in the Kingkiller Chronicles, by Patrick Rothfuss.  The first book was The Name of the Wind.  The second The Wise Man's Fear.  So far, I'm loving the second as much as the first.

Love both of those books; I'm dying to read the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicles series, but there's been no official release date yet and it's driving me crazy. I'd read a while back that the third one was supposed to be released in 2013; fingers crossed that it's true! Wink I also read that he's planning on a new fantasy series, after Kvothe/Kote’s story is concluded. If so, I'll certainly be on the lookout for that one.
