I finished The Time Traveler's Wife last night. I loved it and I'm looking forward to reading her new novel. I'm about 1/2 way through The Shop On Blossom Street. So far, I'm not enjoying it as much as the others in the series. I'm finding the characters except for Lydia all rather whiny in this book. I have Songs For The Missing by Stewart O'Nan and Home Repair by Liz Rosenberg from the library to read so one of those should be next but I have a stack on my TBR stack that are calling to me.

Struggling with an audio book that is kind of slow paced for me...

Happy Monday Everyone!

I'm getting a late start on the day. Stayed up until the wee hours of the morning watching Nora Roberts' Tribute on TV. I haven't been up that late in years and years, but it was a good movie.

I devoured Death of a Gossip by M.C. Beaton yesterday. I've already posted my review on it. It was really good.

I am now reading Killings in Crediton by Michael Jecks. It is a medieval murder mystery. I think this one is the third one I've read. They start out slow, but I always get into them as I keep reading. I think I especially enjoy the descriptions of the medieval life-style of the common folk. We hear more about the aristocracy and warriors of the time in other books. These books deal more with the common population. The time period is after the massacre of the Knights Templar. One of the main characters is a knight who escaped persecution and returned to his family's estate to take over it's care, as his older brother has died. He is now Lord of the region, though he keeps to himself, unless he is called upon to help keep the peace or to help solve a murder.

I just want to also let you know I, too, am looking forward to the next book by the author of Time Traveler's Wife. That one and Dan Brown's Lost Symbol are both high on my TBR list.
