I am almost to the end of Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain and it’s very good. You don’t want to stop reading at the end of a chapter….what in the world will happen next? It almost reminds you of the old song, “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all!” But the characters are endearing and you’re cheering for them to succeed or at least to survive! I’ve really enjoyed it!
And I’m getting ready to go back to the 1500s so it was a nice change. (3rd in this series)
I found a small stack of old Hardy Boy books at the old thrift store. (25 cents each)
And a wonderful classic, The Call of the Wild by Jack London.
You can’t go wrong reading the classics….again and again.
I’m joining Ricki Jill for Literary Friday.
And the Friday 56 HERE .
My page 56 quote is from Necessary Lies, “He smiled, little white teeth showing as he reached for the candy. But Charlotte still held the candy out of reach. What color is this lollipop? she asked him. Green he said. What shape is it? Square or a circle? Round, he said. That’s right. You’re a smart boy! She unwrapped the lollipop and handed it to him.”
(The quote is a social worker talking with a small child.)
Are you reading something good this week?
