Books and Blooms

This blog is starting to turn into a book blog. Oh well, that’s what’s going on with me right now. Like I’ve said before, reading is cheap. Luckily, about a month ago, the hubby found a full time job after over two years of being out of work. It’s not the greatest job, but it has been sorely needed. So, at least money is not quite as tight as it was recently.

I finished all the Stephanie Plum books. I didn’t know what I was going to read next. It’s always a disappointment to come to the end of a series, or wait for the next book to released. The same friend who recommended the Plum books recommended Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I linked to the Wikipedia entry in particular because it didn’t give away as much in the summary as other sites. Personally, I don’t like to know that much about what happens in the story before I read. I think all I knew about this book was that the story was set mainly in Ethiopia and covered more than one generation.

I tend to enjoy novels that span many years. We see what happened before a person was born, then their whole life, and then maybe their children’s also. I think that’s why I like the Follet books I’ve read and also biographies.

I just finished Cutting for Stone today. Next: maybe Darkly Dreaming Dexter?

P.S. The amaryllis bloomed. So freaking cool.
