    I love Goodreads! icon_smile.gif I like the recommendations and am curiously addicted to making My Books lists!

    I finally finished The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, which I did enjoy (although it did take my half of forever to get through it in Swedish)! If you like it, you should absolutely check out the Finnish author Arto Paasilinna - his books have a similar surreal vibe to them.

    From fiction to history: now reading She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth by Helen Castor. Very dense text and the book is pretty scholarly, but the stories are fascinating!

    Just got back from vacation and 2 books read: Lisa Gardner "Catch Me" and Allison Brennan "Speak No Evil". Gardner's wasn't one of her best. It didn't hook you right away like her other ones.
    Now I got John Sandford's first 3 "Prey" books from the library. Hopefully they'll get me going on him since he has so many books I haven't read.

    NKitty, Hope you are enjoying Sanford's "Prey" books. I found them enjoyable for the most part. As with most authors, I found the earlier ones to be the best. I have recently read a couple of Baldacci's recent efforts and found them not nearly as good as his earlier ones. I am beginning to believe most authors experience "burn-out" after so many books. And watch out when they start collaborating! A sure sign of going downhill!

    I am enjoying the "Prey" books. So far I've read the first 2 and I'm starting the 3rd one. Looking forward for the rest of them! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm almost finished with Rhys Bowen's The Family Way latest installment in the Molly Murphy series. You should read the previous books in the series, so you can fully appreciate the characters and understand the "history" of the characters. The series is set in New York City in the early 1900's. It can be considered a cozy mystery.

    Finished (not sure WHY!) Life After Life by Atkinson ! Found it NOTHING like the "splurby" -- very confusing moves back and forth from after WW1 to end of WW2 -- in no discernible pattern ! Very odd story !

    Somebody at the library must be doing the same thing I'm doing: reading the "Prey" books in order since the next 2 that I want are gone but his other ones are still on the shelves. icon_cry.gif
    So now I'm reading Linwood Barclay's "Too Close to Home." He writes thrillers which I love!!

    Another good one from Barclay!!!
    Now I've started and finished Lisa Jackson's "Almost Dead." May have to try more of hers.
    The 2 "Prey" books are in at the library but they don't open till Tuesday. icon_sad.gif Guess I'll have to find a short paperback at home until then.

    Right: after She-Wolves it was on to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce (really enjoyed - bawled eyes out at the end), and then for something completely different: Insurgent (Divergent Series #2) by Veronica Roth. I can't really stand Tris, the leading lady of the series, so I'm iffy about the series all in all - but since there's only one more book to go (due to be published in October, I think!), I guess I will read it to see what happens... icon_confused.gif

    Currently reading Brady Udall's The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint and enjoying it so far!

    I just finished reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. It's an English novel from the 19th century, that's when the writer lived, so it was obviously set during that time. It's also one of the few detective novels, which Wilkie Collins was known for, at that time, and still is.

    The novel is about an artist sent to teach two half sisters to pain, in the countryside, and just before he is set to leave, he helps a mysterious woman, dressed all in white, who had just escaped from a private asylum, and was now looking for her way into London. He confides in one of the sisters, who helps him to unravel the mystery of the woman.

    The woman, as they soon learn happens to have a connection with the other sister's husband, who uses and manipulates her for her money, for his own financial gain. As it turns out, the woman in white is another half sister of the wife, claiming to know a secret that will ruin her husband's reputation, which is why she was locked up, in the first place.

    I find, personally, I have a tendency of choosing novels that takes me some time to get into, and then get engrossed in, as the story unfolds. This novel is one of them. It is well written, and the older of the two half sisters (the one who helps investigate the identity of the woman in white) is almost like a modern day woman. She chooses to remain unmarried (mostly because she doesn't have a dowry), is intelligent, forthright and aggressive in getting things done. But she is also a very kind and caring person.

    I really ended up liking this novel, and if you're into detective novels, this won't disappoint. But this novel was also written in the Victorian era (which I love), so the language is slightly different from modern novels, but not difficult to follow.

    If you like historical non fiction, I just finished The Black Count about the black General Dumas who was the father to author who wrote the Count of Monte Cristo. Eye opener to French openess to blacks. Currently, am reading The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng so far can barely set it down. Love the setting--Malaysia.
