I am being featured over at the Book Blogger's International today, for those interested in learning a little more about me. I do so little self-promotion anymore, admittedly, but I thought it would be fun to answer the survey questions. I have enjoyed getting to know other blogger's via the website, and the featured articles are always entertaining. I am not brave enough to write one of those.
Last week I finished reading Ann Leary's The Good House. I had originally planned to listen to the audio version, but I wanted to finish the book for my book discussion. It takes me awhile to get through an audio book, so print--or rather e-copy--was my best option. I am excited about the discussion and hope my review will do justice to my thoughts about the book.
I am now reading Claire Kendal's The Book of You, which is described as an intense suspense novel about a woman believes she is being stalked. Perhaps it is not the best book to read before falling asleep at night, but when have I ever listened to that piece of advice?
What are you reading at the moment? Is it something you would recommend?

I confess I wasn't immediately smitten with The Book of You as I began reading, but the more I read . . . Well, let's just say it's a hard book to put down. Nearly impossible. Here is the opening of The Book of You by Claire Kendal:Would you continue reading?
It is you. Of course it is you. Always it is you. Someone is catching up to me, and I turn and see you. I'd known it would be you, but I still lose my footing on the frozen snow. I stagger up. There are patches of wet on the knees of my stockings. My mittens are soaked through.
