Sunday Salon: False Spring

The crocuses have pushed up during a brief, false spring and may survive the next several days. Snow is expected Monday-Tuesday!

I have been reading more ebooks from the library and just finished Into Thin Air, an account of the tragic expeditions in a climb of Everest in the spring of 1996, a story which had me in tears in parts.
I also whizzed through Girl in Translation, finding ebooks faster to read.

Books on my desk:

I LOVED The Kommandant's Girl.

That book made me fall in love with Pam Jenoff's writing style and books.

I have QUICKSAND and want to read it before long. INTO THIN AIR was a great favorite of mine. First read it several years ago and so fascinating and tragic.

After loving Jenoff's The Orphan's Tale, I want to read more from her. The Kommandant's Girl looks like a good one.

I also like the look of Quicksand. Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

I looked at the C.S. Harris book before, but wasn't sure if it was something I would like. It's a maybe for me. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh how I loved the Kommandant's Girl, I read it a few years ago now but I still remember how much I enjoyed it. I raced out to purchase The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff when it released here last week. Enjoy the rest of your books and happy reading to you!

I am most interested in The Kommandant's Girl. Are you really expecting more snow?! That just doesn't seem right. Happy reading, Harvee!

I need to look into Pam Jenoff's work. I've seen her name on the blogosphere, but haven't read anything yet and it does seem like my kind of read.

Oooooh - Quicksand looks excellent!! Thanks for sharing!

Where the Dead Lie looks really good and I've never seen this series. I'll definitely be looking up the author to read about the first book in this series. Thanks for sharing!
