Here is what my passenger seat looks like when I forget to bring my library bag:
Here are the books that I finished during April, with a twitterature-style review followed by my rating out of ten:
This is one novel that is NOT for the kids. There are many points of view, and at first I struggled with keeping everybody straight, but the narrative tightened up as the story progressed. By the end, I was shredded. 7 out of 10
Loved this one over coffee. So many good things to ponder, but best consumed in small doses. 9 out of 10
Plantagenets and Tudors! Back and forth narratives, main characters with similar names (Kate and Katherine) meant I had to be paying close attention, but an enjoyable story. 7 out of 10
A way to roll my Downton Abbey and my Sherlock preoccupations into one--a postwar detective story. The second in a series. 8 out of 10
When you have a day and a half to kill, why not spend it with Stephanie Plum? I don't think she's ever going to decide between Morelli and Ranger, and that's okay. 6 out of 10
That was what I finished in April--there were many skims and perusals as well. Already for May, I have my first 10 out of 10 for the year. See you next month.
