Apparently I’m heavily into alliteration this week . . . Ten On Tuesday . . . Wednesdays are for Weekending . . . and now . . . Three Things on Thursday. The three things, however, are books and there’s no alliteration there. Sorry. It reminds me of the time a friend and I were listening to Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” and the lyrics kept rhyming:
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discover that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
And then the next line:
After he took from you everything he could steal.
Damn, no rhyme. I still remember us looking at each other and going, really? he couldn’t have come up with just one more word to rhyme with cat? Sheesh, how lame. Yes, I did just call Bob Dylan, one of the greatest poets of our time, lame. I’m kidding, of course since we all know he is actually a genius.
These are the 3 books I have read most recently:
- Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. This is probably my favorite so far of the Outlander series. I don’t want to give anything away for those of you who might yet read it but the romantic in me just loves this one due to a very poignant and emotional reunion. Sigh.
- Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich. Pure and utter fluff but still entertaining and a good palate cleanser after two Outlander books in a row. The adventures of Lula and Stephanie always make me laugh and Morelli and Ranger are both pretty hot.
- Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. If you haven’t read this yet then what are you waiting for? It’s funny and well written and intriguing and very very good.
Next up for me is Life After Life by Kate Atkins.
