What I read in December
Going to the Sun by Jean George --she is the author of Julie of the Wolves and one of my favorites, My Side of the Mountain. This story is about a boy and girl in a small town in Montana and their year of living with the mountain goats in Montana's Mission Mountains Range. I enjoyed it
Layer Cake by J. J. Connolly (library) also a film, this is a thriller about London's drug world. Lots of interesting slang, made it kinda of hard to read. Drug slang and British Drug Slang!! LOL
The Body in the Sleigh by Katherine Hall Page --I have read a bunch of her Body in the....books, but I think I missed this one years ago, fun and goes with the holiday season :-)
Among the Janeites by Deborah Yaffe about Jane Austen Fandom. I just saw Lost in Austen again and this was fun too
The Agatha Christie Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah (library) a new Hercule Poirot mystery. It was okay. If you are a huge Christie fan, go for it....otherwise, stick to the real deal
Christmas with Anne by L M Montgomery I have Anne on the brain right now because I am involved with an Anne of Green Gables Art exchange (this is how I explain it to the non-letterboxing postal people! )
Maggie Girl of the Streets by Stephen Crane found this book on the airplane and it includes short stories by Stephen Crane
Mystery of the Glowing Eye by Carolyn Keene probably most notable for being the book where Nancy is jealous of Marty King, who works for her father!
Essays of E. B. White by E. B. White (library) I had never read these before. Of course I am a huge fan of his Children's books, and I really enjoyed these. I might have to buy this book to have on my shelf and return to again and again.
Fup by Jim Dodge (library) a fun book about a pet duck, real quick read, a novella really
Vanish by Tess Gerritsen I still have a stack of these Rizzoli and Isles books to read. They are not my favorites, so not always the first thing I pick up
Designated Daughters by Margaret Maron (library) and I love Margaret Maron and just have to read these as fast as possible when they become available
Season to Taste by Natalie Young (library) wife kills, then cooks and eats her husband. Let me tell you, it put me off meat for awhile??!! LOL
Carthage by Joyce Carol Oates (library) a girl is missing and an Iraqi Vet is the suspect.
