The Good, The Best, The Rest, and The Reviewed
I read less in August than I did in months past (due to circumstances partially tied to a certain overdue library book which is being very difficult and hiding somewhere in my house), but here are the books of August.
Firestarter - King (now I think the only books I've yet to read of his are The Stand and the four fantasy books)
Julie and Julia - Julie Powell
Hide and Seek - Jack Ketchum. The only reason I decided to place this with the good instead of with the best is because I feel that while the first half or so of the does a good job of setting up characters and relationships, the pace it sets is a bit slow for me.
The Outlander by Gil Adamson. This book is about a woman who commits a crime and who is then chased through the Canadian wilderness by a set of eerie red haired twins who want her to pay. I am a sucker for women in the wilderness books, as well as for tales about a woman on her own, and I enjoyed this book very much.
The following are books I finished, and while they weren't my favorite books, I did take the time to finish each one of them (books I don't like, I don't finish. End of story). These are not bad books, they just weren't for me.
Woman - Richard Matheson
Deep in the Darkness - Michael Laimo
A House Divided - Deborah LeBlanc.
And The Reviewed
I read Men of Five by C. Bryan Brown for TMND, and my review for that should be coming out in the next issue.
Good writing everyone! (no I didn't neglect a WIP Wednesday post on purpose...)
