Haven't exactly been on fire with the books, but since my last post on Dec. 3, I actually made 2 trips to Mexico, so at least finished "Cutting for Stone" on the Kindle. I thought this was a grand story, and enjoyed it from start to finish. The characters were thoughtfully drawn and the prose flowed seamlessly along with the story. Time well spent reading this one. A friend loaned me "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet" by Jaime Ford; her idea, not mine, but I liked it well enough. It was a quick read and the history was interesting as there was a Japanese internment camp just north of where I live. Am now half way through "Boy's Life" by Robert McCammon (also on the Kindle). First book of his I've read and I can't wait to finish it so I can read more by him. This one reminds me a little of "Summer of Night", just because of the coming of age aspect, and that great feeling for nostalgia, but at this point, I like this story line better, and my heart is with the main character Cory, and his Dad. Sure missed a lot not being a boy!!!
