A: The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

Q: What was the last thing you read?
A: The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld (link to review)

Q: What do you plan to read next?
A: So Cold the River by Michael Koryta

Q: Why do you want to read it?
A: I want to read it because Michael Koryta will be visiting Big Hat Books & Arts next week.

Q: What books did you acquire?
A: Purchased: My Reading Life by Pat Conroy - I loved this book so much I had to buy a finished copy.

From author: Bent Road by Lori Roy
From publisher: Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind by Ellen F. Brown and John Wiley, Jr., The Survivor by Sean Slater

Q: What bookish events did you attend? A: None, but this weekend kicks off a series of great events! First up is the grand opening of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library this Saturday. To see what other upcoming bookish events are in the Indianapolis  area, check out my recent post.


  1. Looking forward to your thoughts on The Weird Sisters - I read the description of that one and it sounds great!

  2. Misfortune sounds really interesting; had not heard about that one before :)
    I loved Pat Conroy's book too!
