This week I finished Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, by John Berendt. I didn’t realize how affecting this book was until I finished it–it will definitely be among my top books of 2010.
I then read The Prime if Miss Jean Brodie, by Muriel Spark, which I detested. I just really did not enjoy the writing style and I felt like the characters were poorly written.
I am now reading The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova. Coming in at almost 700 pages, it is definitely quite the chunkster! I am about 250 pages in and loving it so far. It took me awhile to get acclimated as I knew nothing about Dracula or Vlad the Impaler–in fact, I didn’t even know that that is what The Historian was about!
I am getting so excited for all the fun stuff going on around the blogosphere this fall. We have BBAW starting tomorrow!!! I love the sense of community that comes along with BBAW and I am very excited to participate for the second year in a row. I am also getting pumped for Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon. I didn’t get to join in this past April, so it has been a year since I have been able to participate. I am super excited!
Will you be participating in BBAW and/or the read-a-thon?
