And ....there is this one! 'Three Bags Full' by Leonie Swann. This book caught my attention, perhaps because the cast of characters are sheep! This is a witty philosophical murder mystery with a charming twist: the crack detectives are sheep determined to discover who killed their beloved sheperd.
'Missing Mom' by Joyce Carol Oates. The character Nikki Eaton ...single, thirty-one, and self supporting. Yet, following the unexpected loss of her mother, she undergoes a remarkable transformation during a tumultuous year that brings stunning horror, sorrow, illumination, wisdom and even-from an unexpected source-a nurturing love.
Last, but certainly not least .... 'The Host', by Stephanie Meyer. A fascinataing, passionate, and unique psychological thriller. I read that someone equated this book as a love triangle ...only there are two people! Surprising news ....this book; I have downloaded onto my computer and listen to it while I'm in my studio. Something new I'm trying ....but, I still like reading the old fashion way! I'll report back on how I liked 'listening' to this book, instead of actually 'reading'!
If you have not read Stephanie's 'Twilight' series ....I highly recommend them. I've posted about this before. The 'Twilight' series is deliciously wonderful and the fourth and final book in this series is due out August 2nd! I already have it on reserve, and there is a new movie due this fall based on the first book 'Twilight'. I'll be the first in line! (Well, not really ...but, I've seen trailers and it looks even more spectacular than the book.)
And ....not to forget some of my favorites. The new Sommerset 'HOME' and 'ARTFUL BLOGGING' is out. I picked these up yesterday at my favorite store ....B&N!
And to add to these ....are these ....
I believe I'll save most of these for the coming long winter days and nights!
So, what's currently on your bedside reading table?
(PS ...While looking over this post, I realized that most of these listed reading books are dark and mysterious. I usually don't pick these kind of books ...but, they just called to me! Spooky, right?)
