Despite evidence to the contrary, I'm still here and still reading. We are on Spring Break this week in which we enjoyed one day of spring-like weather and mama got no break (except for the sleeping in part, thanks grammy).
I have been reading. And have lots to share including a new book review for Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman.
I'm not going to bother writing a review for the icky book I finished this week - The Story of Janeby Catherine Cusset.The premise - a professor at a small New England College finds a package at her door that contains a novel about her. And it is frighteningly accurate. She begins to read and the story alternates with the "novel" and Jane trying to unravel the mystery. Sounds good, right? It's not. Trust me on this one.
Next week I'll be reviewing my advanced copy of An Offer You Can't Refuse by Jill Mansell - some British chick lit.
I also finished my Round Robin book - Coming of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody which was totally worthwhile. I won't say anymore and spoil it for the rest of the people in my group. But I highly recommend it as one of those books everyone should read.
Also to all of the READING ROUND ROBIN ladies - if you are finished with your books, nothing says you can't mail them early. You should mail them starting next Wednesday April 1 anyhow. If you aren't finished reading your first book - get a move on. :) And yes, I realize some people received their books late because I don't know how to type - my apologies. If you mailed your book late because life is crazy - well, welcome to the club...mail it earlier this month please. :)
That was the lit*chick brain dump for this week. How's everyone doing? And what are you reading?
