Hello and welcome to The Bibliophile Files!!
You will probably recall that I didn't get to post TBF last month so these 15 books represent a two month haul. Not too bad but not great either. Goodreads says I'm 4 books behind schedule to hit my annual goal but with several driving vacations scheduled in the next 4 months that should be easy to catch up on.
I'm also hoping that as the weather continues to improve (How can I joyously walk in a blizzard but not a measly rainstorm? I could see my breath this morning!) I will get in more steps and more books.
Language of Bees
Weeping - This was touted as book #1 in a series but 12 years later there is still no #2. Too bad because this was a good premise for a series.
Orphan Train - such a sad tale based on the real orphan trains which I had known nothing about.
Angela's Ashes - I didn't know until the audiobook finished that this was an abridged version. I always wonder what was left out - and in this case - how the book got it's name. No mention of ashes in the entire audiobook.
Little Giant of Aberdeen County - horribly slow start but I'm glad I stuck it out as the end was quite interesting.
Dance of the Bones
Burial Rites - based on the true story of a woman forced to work on a family farm waiting to have her head chopped off as punishment for murder.
Blood Lure - I love this series - each book takes place in a different national park.
The Scarpetta Factor - when did Kay Scarpetta get so jaded? I love this series but she just seemed mean and nasty in this book.
Garment of Shadows
on my iPhone - Book of the Dead
on my stereo - Day of the Dead
Funny they both have similar titles...
And now it's your turn...what have you read in the last 2 months?
Anything is fair game: novels, magazines, new quilt books or even cereal boxes.
