Sunday Salon: The Leaves Have All Come Down


Vinegar Girl

Seems winter is here. It's freezzzzing outside and it's only mid-November. I hear it may warm up a bit later in the week. The leaves came down all of a sudden during the super cold nights. Autumn is over!

I finished and reviewed Dunbar by Edward St. Aubyn, a retelling in modern times of the King Lear story. I recommend it, and have decided to read others in the Hobarth Shakespeare series as well.

I've borrowed Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler, which retells The Taming of the Shrew. 


My current read is The Marsh King's Daughter  by Karen Dionne, a suspenseful thriller involving a woman who hunts down her father, a murderer and escapee from prison, who had abducted her mother years before. The conflict is that she had grown up loving him as her father, not realizing her mother's situation as a captive until she and her mother escaped when she turned age 12.
The Marsh King's Daughter


Who doesn't like to read about a strong woman, one who has to battle her heart and circumstances in order to do the right thing and save her own life in the end?
That's all for this week, folks. What are you reading?

Harvee, all of your current reads sound interesting. I just finished reading Never Let Me Go. I hope you will stop by my blog for my review when you get a chance. Next I will read Louisiana Catch. Have a terrific weekend!

You will like the suspense!

Excellent review, Suko. I just read your blog. Am so impressed you didn't give anything away, no spoilers.

Suko said...

Harvee, thank you. I tried not to include any major spoilers!

The title of this post, The Leaves Have All Come Down, sounds like it belongs on a novel, novella, or poetry collection.

Harvee said...

I will have to consider it, smile.

You must have gotten all the cold as next week will be in the upper 70’s here. Come, winter!

Enjoy your reading week!

Yep, still cold and rainy too. Can't get out to rake the leaves as yet!

It's cold -- cold here in Virginia too. It's been so warm here that it is now kind of a shock! It looks like you've been reading some good books lately.

Harvee said...

I do wish though that they were all paper books. I like books in any form, but really appreciate them better on paper!

Ooh. too cold for me. My Popcorn trees are starting to drop some leaves but everything else stays green year round. You have some wonderful looking books. Enjoy:)

It’s freezing here, too. It’s a good excuse to stay inside and read. Have a good week!

The Marsh King's Daughter is intriguing. I am putting it on my TBR list. We are supposed to have a bit of a warm up this week.

The Marsh King's Daughter sounds great. We have lots of cold here too. They are predicting a bit of a warm up this week though. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Harvee said...

The Marsh King's Daughter is good if you like suspense and strong female main characters!

Harvee said...

I won't mind a warm up it it comes. Hope you get to read the book!
