I saw your quote pop up on The Kitchen House. I just finished reading it last night and LOVED it. I don't have much reading time but I managed to read it in just 3 (working) days. This one just clicked for me.
Sounds like we have similar reading interests. I was wondering if you have tried The Chaneysville Incident by David Bradley. I loved it and I think it's one that would interest you.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there.
Hi Brikti, Yes we do have a lot of books in common. Right now I'm reading Mudwoman by JCO. When I was 15 I read Them by her and was captivated. I do love reading and I'm looking forward to relaxing with it today. BTW I love your picture, is that your little girl? I have a 2 year old grandson whom I adore. Thanks for the note!
I am really enjoying it. The language truly is beautiful as the cover promo says. It's a little hard to understand sometimes but the story is so compelling. I'm about 1/3 of the way through. I often like novels that have a historical setting. And the main character is believable.
Thanks for the offer. For now, I'll stick to the library (my motto these days is "free is better than cheap!" LOL). I use to prefer to buy books, but where I currently live the library is literally across the street, whereas B & N is several miles away. These days I don't even have time to read. My daughter also gives me her books to read if she feels that I will enjoy them. I just haven't had time lately for anything other than teaching books!
Great bookshelf! I see we have some books in common. You may enjoy reading the following books: The Color of Water : A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother, by James McBride; The Watsons Go to Birmingham - 1963, by Christopher Paul Curtis; Bud, Not Buddy, by Christopher Paul Curtis; books by Julia Alvarez, Isabelle Allende
If I think of any other suggestions, I'll let you know.
The Kite Runner was awesome. Very touching story.
