I had planned to get this posted a few days ago, but I was laid up with a stomach virus and am only just now beginning to feel human again. Thank goodness the stomach flu only lasts 24-48 hours and isn't like a cold, lingering for weeks at a time!
But enough of that. Let's talk books. I began the New Year with a wonderful coming-of-age novel, set in Seattle during World War II. The characters came to life and I still find myself thinking of them. From there my reading took me to Dublin, Ireland, where I quickly became engrossed in a marvelous murder mystery written with an amazing literary quality. I've got the author's second book and am anxious to get to it once my husband finishes! I ended the the month with a collection of short stories by a favorite author; satisfying, to say the least. I look forward to her next release with great anticipation.
Only three books, but they were all very good. February's off to a great start, too! I've finished two winners and hope to have those reviews posted later this week.
