The Shining Girls was awesome. Not for the faint of heart, though - there was some really graphic violence, too.
But a great female protagonist - traumatised, strong, brave, funny, vulnerable, cynical... loveable. Human.
And it was such a captivating read!!

Back to Children of Dune. :))

Just added The Shining Girls to my list--sounds awesome! I'm still on Wolf Hall, but I have Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald on hold at the library. I'm tempted to swap it out, but I hate not finishing books.

I'm on my third Rick Bass book. I've read Winter and Colter (which was way too hunting heavy but I should have expected it). Now I'm reading The Wild Marsh. I should probably stop with the Bass soon or I'll run off to the Yaak Valley.

I just finished Candide for my English course. I quite liked it, though I don't find the title character as 'good' as others seem to.

I just read Tina Fey's "Bossypants". I liked it. I was annoyed that the german title translates into "bossypants - do men have humour?"

I finished Wolf Hall today. I liked it so much that I immediately bought Bringing Up the Bodies when I got home.

Finished re-reading Pattern Recognition by William Gibson today; I'd forgotten how much I like that book!

Next up is Colin Dexter's The Way Through The Woods.

I don't know what I'm missing! I'm sticking with it though.

I might try Wolf Hall next. Or the new Nora Roberts. Although if I didn't want to spend $13 on the NR, do I want to use gift card $$ on it? She has just been a little hit or miss for me lately. I'm in the mood for more romantic suspense though, so maybe.

I'm almost finished with A Corpse in the Koryo by James Church. I've starred it before and then gotten sidetracked, but not any fault of the book, which is excellent. I'm happy there are more in the series. In some weird way, he reminds me of van der Wetering. The writing style, perhaps.

I finished Wild and really, really liked it. I have decided I'm going to hike the Pacific Coast Trail when I separate from the military.

Lost Everything by Brian Francis Slattery. It feels very similar to his Liberation and Spaceman Blues, but darker.

Yeah, that book really inspired me to do some through hiking!

I'm not loving The Wild Marsh so I started Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South which I really like.

Whenever I'm hiking now and the trail is kicking my butt I think of Cheryl hiking mountains with a pack that weighed almost as much as she did. And then I keep going.

I'm serious about hiking that trail. I have a few years to plan and get ready.

Growing Up Amish. I tried This is NPR earlier this week, but something about the format felt a little bit disjointed to me and I didn't make it very far. I think it had something to do with it being an ebook, so I'm going to try it again in a paper version soon.

I finished Ghost in the Wires and it was really good, mildly obsessed with Kevin Mitnick and his life now. I'm only 13 years behind the times.

Now I'm reading The Handmaid's Tale which I've never read before and never knew was one of those things You Must Read until last year. Only 28 years behind the times.

I loved Ghost in the Wires. His whole "wow, that was fun, but I probably shouldn't have done that" attitude is pretty entertaining. The other side is Cuckoo's Egg.

I'm reading Hidden Moon, the second mystery set in North Korea. Really loving this series.

Once I get closer I will be looking for hiking partners for sure! I would love to hike with you. Thinking about it makes me peaceful and excited. That was an effective book :-)

In other news, I just read Matched. I do love dystopian future YA. I'll be picking up the next in the series with the book money I got for Christmas.

I just finished North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell which I loved. It's a lot like Pride and Prejudice and now I want to reread that but I can't find my copy. So now that I'm on an 18th/19th century kick I'm trying to decide whether I should buy more Austen or read some of the Dickens that I haven't read yet. Or something completely new to me.

I know! It's so good! I find it easier to read than Wolf Hall. I've been getting through it much faster. Maybe it's because the cast of characters isn't so huge, and you kinda already know who everyone is from the first book.
