I read Dead Wake and hate to say I enjoyed it due to the subject but I was eager to pick it back up when I had to put it down.  It's about the Lusitania. 

Now I'm reading What Alice Forgot and so far I really like it.

Salt to the Sea.  Best book I've read in a long, long time.

I've been reading paranormal stuff lately.  The latest was Dark Rites by Heather Graham.  it is the latest in her FBI Krewe of Hunters series.  It is pretty good.  I finished it in one day.  I also read Julie Garwood's latest police procedural  "Wired" which is an FBI set as well, but with a different spin.  It was also a winner.

I read something more profound recently, and though "i need to put that on ssh" but i'll be if I can remember what it was!

Have you read Burial Rites by Hannah Kent?  Based on a true story.   Sooooo good.

no.  i'll have to put that on hold tomorrow. 

i was farther behind on heather graham than i thought.  right after dark rites, i got wicked deeds.  it is the same fbi paranormal suspense as the others, but this one focuses on edgar allen poe.  it was pretty good!

i am not reading back, but i think the one i wanted you to read was "chickens in the road".  it is a biography and i'll have to get the author's name tomorrow at work. it is pretty good.

I'll see if my library has it.  Author Suzanne McMinn.

I used to read Poe all the time.  Have you read Mrs. Poe?  I enjoyed it.

Last month my book club read Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld which is said to be an updated Pride and Prejudice.  Well it's trash.  None of us enjoyed it and a few, me included, didn't even finish it.  It got great reviews on Goodreads and I don't know what those people were thinking.

This month we're reading American's First Daughter which is supposed to be historic fiction but all the history  must be in the first 2 chapters because I'm on chapter 15 and from chapter 3 until now it's about a made up love story that gets sillier and sillier.  May not finish this one either.

sheri, america's first daughter has been doing a lot of business at the library, but is not making the wait lists. it is more a "oh, that looks interesting, maybe i'll read it" book.  it didn't look interesting to me though.

lately, i've been reading paranormal suspense, romantic suspense, and paranormal romance, not to mention the paranormal romantic suspense.  that sounds silly but it's "light" reading that grabs me but doesn't leave me feeling worse for the reading of it.  that said, tomorrow i will pick up the latest irene hannon christian suspense. i can't remember the name, but i've been waiting a while...

I got to chapter 28 on that book and just canít take it anymore.  If her heart flutters and she almost swoons one more time I think Iíll just push her on over.
