Good afternoon, fellow readers! I’m late getting to my Sunday Salon post today because I wanted to finish reading City of Refuge by Tom Piazza and get a review posted first (read my review). Wow, what a fantastic book this was…and I am grateful to Stephanie at Harper Perennial for sending me a copy for review. Tom Piazza is a terrific writer…and this book grabbed me almost from page one. It will make my top ten list for 2009 reads. Have you read it yet? Piazza has also written another novel titled My Cold War which I now want to read.
Other books read this week include Goldengrove by Francine Prose (read my review) and Sometimes We’re Always Read Same-Same by Maddox Roesch (read my review). These books couldn’t be more different from each other in style or subject matter!
Next up for me is a book which has been on my TBR mountain for a long time. Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich is the first novel in her Native American Series (two other books in the series include The Beet Queen and Tales of Burning Love). I have been wanting to read something by Erdrich for awhile…and this one will serve as my first random read for The Random Reading Challenge.
Since I got such a late start on my Salon post today, I’ll keep this short. I hope you are having a wonderful day, and whatever you are doing, I hope it involves a great book!!
