A Tale Of Two Books...

Mostly in my reading life I rarely read two books at the same time...but...I can do it if one is on my Kindle and the other is a real book. And usually I am okie dokie with that but...not with these two books! Sigh! They are both too good...too yummy...too amazeballs! Now those are some great reviewing words!

Ok...this one...four friends who used to be in a band in college at Oberlin...I love this because half of my family went to college there...the band was called Kitty's Mustache. Elizabeth married Andrew and had Harry and Jane married Zoe and had wild child Ruby. Now...in their late 40's...everyone is having issues...Harry loves Ruby...Ruby doesn't have a clue what she wants to do after high school...Andrew is a confused mess...Zoe wants a divorce from Jane and Iggy Pop the Cat is missing. And some Hollywood Types are making a movie of the band! So good...great writing...I keep reading it because I can't stand that Iggy is missing!

And this one...
London is a wasteland of disease and destruction and Gwen Darling is left to care for her sister and brother...there is a Captain Hook character and a Peter Pan character actually named Pete. The Captain Hook character is actually named General Hanz Otto Oswald Kretschmer...aka Hook! When Gwen's sister is taken...the quest begins! It's really good! It's like Peter Pan and yet so unlike Peter Pan!

Ok...off to read one of these...Iggy or Pete?

Hugs...

  1. Hmm, neither book is one I've even heard of, but I hope you can savor both of them. I usually can only read two books at a time if they are very different genres.

  2. I'm already looking forward to Modern Lovers, but Everland is new to me. Doesn't sound likely cuppa, but I just know my daughter will love that one.

  3. I am not familiar with these books. I am glad you liked them, though.
    I was looking at your editor and her assistant. It had been awhile since I really looked at the pictures. Great pictures!
