I finished The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin and enjoyed it. It’s a YA mystery novel with a murder (or was it?) and enough characters, clues and setting for me to enjoy. It would make a good Christmas present book for a younger reader.
Also read were couple of short novels by John Vornholt, River Quest and Sabertooth Mountain which are part of the YA Dinotopia series. These YA novels were just lazy reading while I’m also slowly working through the seasonal Big Book of Christmas Mysteries which I’d hoped to have finished by now. So I’ll continue with that and read some novels…
… three of which just showed up all at once at the library: Lock In by John Scalzi, Greenglass House by Kate Milford and Wild by Cheryl Strayed, which is the basis for the current film. I’m not sure how I’ll like Wild, but I want to try it. Some of these books have been on hold for ages, but they popped up together. Funny how that keeps happening.
Barbara finished In the Dark by Brian Freeman and has started Mark Billingham’s The Bones Beneath, which she’s enjoying. She’s read a little less this week, due to many seasonal distractions, like getting a quilt finished up which is a gift for a daughter and shopping, decorating and such. Next up for her is Stephen King’s Revival. which has also just popped in at the library.
