It's Monday! What am I reading?
First, my thanks (as always) to Sheila at book journey for hosting this weekly post. She's so busy, yet always finds time to pursue her passion for blogging and books.
This month marks the beginning of hurricane season, and that brings with it the ever-present 3 in the afternoon thunderstorm. So my personal mini-challenge this month has to do with books that have "watery" titles. It was a bit of a challenge, really, to comb through my library and see exactly what I had that met this odd requirement, but so far I've managed to do okay.
Catching up from 2 weeks ago, here's what I've read:
1. Taken at the Flood, by Agatha Christie (apa: There is a Tide)
2. The Sea and Poison, by Shusaku Endo
3. Water-blue Eyes, by Domingo Villar (a bit of crime fiction from Spain)
4. The Ice Princess, by Camilla Lackberg (crime fiction from Sweden)
5. Zeitoun, by Dave Eggers (not a "watery" title, but a book about Hurricane Katrina - and my favorite this week)
6. The Secret of Chimneys, by Agatha Christie (again...not watery but well, I wanted to read it)
Currently I've just finished
Deadwater, by Sean Burke (crime fiction from Wales - review to follow)
and plan to read the following this week:
The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast, by Douglas Brinkley
Gone Fishin' by Walter Mosley
and whatever else strikes my fancy at any given moment
that's it - I should go read now.
