Catching Up -- Books

I haven't posted recently about books I'm reading, so will try to catch up.

I tried reading "Burning Bright" by Tracey Chevalier. I liked her book "Girl With Pearl Earring" but I just could NOT get into this book. It moved way too slowly for me. So I never made it to the end. The premise was good -- William Blake's England -- but it went back to the library half-finished.

A while back, I mentioned my attempt at Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. I love Stephen King, have read all his books, EXCEPT that particular series. I'd tried the first one ages ago, and it made no sense to me whatsoever, so I gave it up and wrote that series off. But recently I gave it a go again. Once I got through the first book, it was ok -- the second one was better, but the third, "Wizard and Glass", really kept my attention, and I'm well into the fourth, "Wolves of the Calla".

When I was at Barnes and Noble the other day, I noticed that Anita Shreve has a new book out, so I'll be getting into that one before too long. I also joined for the umpteenth time QPB so I have a stack of books waiting to be read -- I love when that stack is piled high!
