As usual, the lit bloggers have tempted me with their reviews. Here is what I found this week to add to my wish list:
Turtle Valley, by Gail Anderson-Dargatz as featured on Kailana’s blog The Written World. Kailana writes: ‘I always like the history of family. The secrets that are hiding in the closet or the mysteries that have never been solved. This book deals a lot with this idea, which is a lot of the reason why I liked it so much.‘ I like stories about family secrets too…so I think this one will eventually find its way to my TBR pile.
The Painted Veil, by W. Somerset Maugham as featured on Chris’ blog Book-A-Rama. I have yet to read a Maugham novel and I think maybe it is time I do. The Painted Veil sounds like a good place to start. Chris writes: ‘Told entirely from Kitty’s point of view, it’s a character study of one woman’s search for her true self after reality is forced upon her.‘ I’ve added it to my wish list.
