Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

Excerpt from The Atomic City Girls

I have just started reading The Atomic City Girls, by Janet Beard. In searching it up on Amazon just now, and realized that there is also a book called The Girls of Atomic City, on the same subject, so be aware if you are looking it up that there are two very similar books out there. The Atomic City Girls is billed as a novel and The Girls of Atomic City as a true story ...

Excerpt from Camino Island

Excerpt from Camino Island

I just finished reading John Grisham's Camino Island, which is a heist/intrigue novel rather than his usual legal thriller. As the plot surrounds rare manuscripts and writers, there is a lot of insight into the writing life and publishing world. Grisham draws together the disparate threads of the plot together for the grand finale and reveal. ...

Writing for Nanowrimo

Writing for Nanowrimo

If you've been following me here for a while, you know that I generally participate in Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) every year. A lot of people complain that November is too busy for trying to write a novel, but thousands of people around the world do it every year. Maybe it's crazy to do it the month before Christmas, but is there really any perfect month to write a novel? ...

Excerpt from Winter in Paradise

Excerpt from Winter in Paradise

I picked up Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand, which was billed as a mystery, but it is far closer to literary or domestic thriller so far. There is no investigation into the death of the main character's husband and the others in the helicopter with him, and I'm not even sure at this point that they're actually dead. Things are very suspicious ...

Excerpt from The Beekeeper's Apprentice

Excerpt from The Beekeeper’s Apprentice

This week I am reading Laurie R. King's The Beekeeper's Apprentice: or, On the Segregation of the Queen (Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes Book 1). I've read a number of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, including one with a female Sherlock Holmes (Study in Scarlet Women). This one gives Sherlock a new apprentice, a young woman who meets him after his retirement and studies under his tutelage. There are a number of smaller mysteries within this book. I'm not sure whether that trend continues, or whether I am now onto the "main" mystery. ...

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

Hopefully, you found some spooky books to add to your TBR pile last week! This week, I focused on mysteries for Halloween. And as you know, Halloween also means that Nanowrimo is upon us! Yes, every year on November 1st, thousands of writers around the world begin writing a new book for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel during November. There are write-ins and chats and buddies for support. I will usually write 70,000-100,000 words because my novels are longer than 50,000 words, and last year's NaNo novel ended up being over 150,000 words. I am just about ready to kick off! ...

Excerpt from The Secret Adversary

I just finished reading Agatha Christie's The Secret Adversary, the first Tommy and Tuppence story. It's been many years since I read it last. I had forgotten the layers upon layers of adventure and misdirection. It is classic Agatha Christie, with fun and memorable characters. Definitely worth a read ...

Excerpt from Dan Brown’s Origin

I am currently reading Dan Brown's Origin, Book #5 in the Robert Langdon series (which started with the daVinci Code). As with most Dan Brown, there are plenty of descriptions of art work, architecture, and symbols, with lots of interplay between religion and science. Intrigue, adventure, and plenty of twists and turns. ...
