SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

October Roundup

Wood America 1844: Religious Fervor, Westward Expansion, and the Presidential Election That Transformed the Nation - John Bicknell Bet Me - Jennifer Crusie Long Summer Day - R.F.

October was a pretty good reading month. 


I got off of my plate a book I've been working on in bits and pieces for a good while now (Empire of Liberty).   (Which reminds me, I need to review it.)


Best read: A Trick of the Light, by Louise Penny.  The Inspector Gamache series is a excellent series on average, and this one of the best in it that I've read so far.


No worst read, as nothing under 3 stars.


New author discovered: Jennifer Crusie.  Bet Me was a hoot, and I'd read another of her books.
