A.C. Gaughen: I finished THE BETRAYAL OF NATALIE HARGROVE, and I'll be honest, I thought it kind of zigzagged. It started, and I thought I was in for a story about a mysterious past and the boy Natalie really should be with. But then zag, and the boy Natalie really should be with is dead, and it's her fault. Zig, her guilt becomes overwhelming in a Lady Macbeth-esque way. Zag...well I'll let you find out the rest. I was happy to go along for the ride, but by the time I turned the last few crucial pages, I was totally floored, astounded, and amazed. LOVED it. Zig zags and all.
Nicole Maggi: I'm reading THE FUTURE OF US and it's so good! Am dying to find out how it ends! But I've been good and haven't flipped ahead. :-) And for something completely different, I'm reading THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS on my Nook. It's a fascinating book about the HeLa cells and although it's nonfiction it reads almost like a novel. I'm not a science person but it has me glued to the page!
Danny Marks: My reading slowed down a bit this week, but not much. I've begun savoring Rosemary Clement Moore's TEXAS GOTHIC, which is much lighter and funnier than I'd imagined. I wasn't sure what I was expecting, really, but it's definitely up my alley. Witches, a big-ass Texas cattle ranch and spooky ghosts, what's not to like? Also, and I highly recommend this for readers of any level, I belong to a book club that meets every two months and this time we're discussing Aravind Adiga's THE WHITE TIGER, a literary tale told by a murderer in central India. So, I'm listening to that on audio 'cause I'm totally down with the convenience!
