Babel Babe asked. This isn't a meme:
The Bird Artist, Howard Norman. - Grim little novel set in Newfoundland.
All Mortal Flesh, Julia Spencer-Fleming - Surprisingly good about love between a policeman and a reverend. I gather it's a series.
Harry Potter, 6 and 7. Re-read 6, thought 7 was not as good as I'd hoped. Really thought the afterward scene (where they're all older, and married to each other) was very disappointing. I mean, EVERYTHING turned out happily ever after?
Death Du Jour, Kathy Reichs - Female forensic scientist. Slides nicely in between Quebec and the states.
The Usual Rules, Joyce Maynard - I think you'd like this one. 13 year old who loses her mom in September 11th, has to up-root and move out with her father (who she really never knew before) and re-invents herself. Nicely rounded out secondary characters.
The Loch, Steve Alten - Weird. Tried very hard to be as technical as a Creighton novel and wound up being prit'near incomprehensible.
House Gun, Nadine Gordimer - Didn't finish as it couldn't hold me - good premise, bad execution.
The Edge of the Crazies, Jamie Harrison - I really, really wanted to like this. It's oddball and sarcastic and crazy, but the author used the word 'stoic' one too many times, and that was that. (The thing is, whenever I read stories with Native Indians in them, it's only a matter of time before the phrase 'stoic face' comes up. It bothers me. Is there no.other.way to describe the characters visage?)
I'm also about half-way through The Kite Runner. New library jaunt on Tuesday. Waaa-hoo!
