Both books involved tragic events...both were so sad...both were intense...both were tremendous.
Little Wolves should not have appealed to me at all...it had kittens, coyotes, cows, a mother kitty, pigs, even a sad bull and every time one of them was mentioned...especially the kittens...I had to stop and literally pray that they would be ok...I cannot read sad animal books.
But Little Wolves was an amazing book. It literally knocked my reading sox off. But I have to step away from these tortured souls for a bit...I need happy...or at least vamp happy dystopian fantasy YA tortured souls kind of happy...whew!
So I am reading this...and I can not put it down...and it is not happy or vampy or werewolfie or fantasy...it's sort of Girl With A dragon Tattoo ish...and Jo Nesbo-ish
and Ann Holt-ish and that other author whose series is on BBC...that flawed Norwegian detective that the English actor plays...of course you know who I am talking about!
It's so good!
Sort of rainy here today...all three of us had a late night...Bronco football was on...
We were still playing with Lucy at midnight! She is grumpy this morning and chooses not to be disturbed! Lol!
Tonight's dinner is very Italian...it's the Italian version of shrimp and grits...meatballs and sauce over polenta...it's so good...and I have everything already made ( thank you Country Butcher ) except the polenta...you put polenta in a bowl and then sauce and meatballs and really good freshly grated cheese over it...yum! And you get to eat it with a spoon...a big spoon!
