I think the entire East Coast is prepping for a mighty snowstorm! Den ran to the store this morning for a few things...shelves were already bare! Luckily we tend to buy organics so what was out in non organic stuff was still available in organic but I am sure that will soon be gone, too. Den has his list ready...pulling out the generator, getting out the snow blower...he even has his snow clothes ready! Yikes! Once all of that is done we will settle in and wait. Roxie is sleeping under a blanket...as if she knows a big huge storm is coming! Right now the sun is out and it's the proverbial "calm before the storm".
Over the weekend I read this...really really good writing and a unique story.
Now I am reading this...and truly loving it from its opening pages.
A few new books...from Edelweiss...
"From the bestselling author of The Sisters comes this twisty, haunting thriller about two best friends, corrosive jealousy, and dark secrets—perfect for fans of The Widow and Luckiest Girl Alive."
“Unger plots an intricate story with plenty of action and a brisk pace…absorbing…All twisty and turny and the things this genre should be.” —Kirkus Reviews
"Thompson strikes the perfect balance, seemingly without compromise, between an issue-driven novel and one with broad, commercial appeal. This empathetic debut is a middle-grade whodunit with a very special heart." -- Kirkus Reviews
“Catnip for readers attached to Boston, believably strongwomen, legal intrigue, or any combination of the above.” Kirkus Reviews
Whew! That is one chunk of intense reading! I hope we have power!
If not...the four of us will be snuggled under massive quilts in our room until Wednesday! But we will have sandwiches! And pretzels! And sour lips!
