I finished piecing the 9 patch top so I can start September and a new quilt with a clear conscience! It will join my other finished tops and age on the shelf for a while.
I haven’t posted my reading list recently but I’ve still been reading plenty. Here are the most recent ones.
Knitting: A Novel Anne Bartlett
I like reading novels where the characters have the same interests that I do. In this case its knitting and I liked this book OK – but the beginning was better than the end.
Lover’s Knot Emilie Richards
On a similar note but this time with quilting. I’ve mentioned before that I like series where I can get to know a group of characters. This Shenandoah Album series is really light reading but I enjoy them.
Duchess: A Novel of Sarah Churchill Susan Holloway Scott
If you like historical fiction then I’d recommend this one.
Beautiful Lies Lisa Unger
This was a good mystery, it looks like it was her first but she’s got another book coming out in January 2007 so I’ll add her to my list of authors.
Motive John Lescroart
Another good mystery with recurring characters. I like all of his books.
The Things We Do for Love Kristin Hannah
I also enjoyed this book – it was about family relationships AND it was on the bargain table which is always a plus!
and last but not least a book recommended by Sam
The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade Ann Fessler
Very interesting and sad – I read this in the car a couple weekends ago on the way to the wedding shower for Becky. Keith and I had some really intense discussions about the topic as I’d read a bit and then feel the need to discuss and he just happened to be trapped in the car with me for 10+ hours.
