For Christmas I got $50 total in Barnes and Noble gift cards and after careful consideration, I decided to buy three books.
DEAD WAKE- THE LAST CROSSING OF THE LUSITANIA
My goal for the last few years has been to read more books by male authors. It may be just me, but it seems like novels by women dominate the shelves. Obviously, how each gender writes and their topics are different, so I want to explore more male fiction writers since finishing book 2 of The Passage Trilogy by Justin Cronin. This has been on my T.B.R. (to be read) list for many months. I’m looking forward to this one.
A guest on the podcast “What Should I Read Next” listed this as one of her favorites and it sounded awesome and right up my reading ally. Anything that has to do with untangling secrets of the past I am all in.
I am not much of a re-reader – hence the re-read project – but this one I have read twice: once in 2013 and a second in 2015. I own it in EBook form but needed to own it in paper form. At the end of my days on this planet, I want people to find this book and see it has been read and loved. I want it dog eared, binding separating, cover creased…the works. I love this book so much.
THE RE-READ PROJECT
I am approaching the final pages of Lessons from Madame Chic and up next is another personal favorite: THE AGE OF INNOCENCE
This was a book where after I read the last sentence, I went up stairs to my husband and collapsed on the bed, longing to discuss it. haha! I want to experience that again as I only recall the feeling and not the details. Now THAT is a good book!
