Actually, I’m rereading A Tangled Web by L.M. Montgomery, which occasionally makes me want to cry for different reasons. (Peter Penhallow is so awful.) I somehow lucked into being part of a librarian Montgomery book club which has been a highlight of the past month.
I’m also reading Gillian Bradshaw’s Horses of Heaven, which is one of the the last Bradshaw books I haven’t read. I’m finding it a bit slow, without the clarity of character & time that her best books give.
And I started Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here on my lunch break yesterday. As I tweeted, this was a horrible mistake as all I want to do is keep reading it. I’m liking it as a portrayal of fan culture, as a look at a character who’s trying to be feminist and not always succeeding, and as a story with a strong friendship between girls. There are aspects that seem somewhat annoying, but I suspect that they will be addressed.
(Would I feel that same way if some other readers I trust hadn’t liked this one? Not sure, and definitely something I’m thinking about.)
