The closest “branch” to me now is the central Enoch Pratt library. It’s got a huge selection but limited shelving, which means that if I don’t know what I want, there’s a limited amount of browsing space. Still, I found several books when I visited on Saturday.
Concealed in Death – I hadn’t read this one. It was fine. Standard Robb.
I’m about 80% finished with Maria Duenas’s The Heart Has Its Reasons. It’s pretty women’s fiction-y and I was enjoying until the melodrama was amped up to 11. Now I’m basically rolling my eyes. Eh.
Other books I checked out are:
- Susanna Kearsley’s The Splendour Falls
- The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in An IKEA Wardrobe by Romain Puertolas — I couldn’t resist it based on the title alone.
- The Demon’s Brood by Desmond Seward. Is there that much about the Plantagenets, in terms of general history, that I don’t know? Eh, maybe not since I was obsessed with Eleanor of Aquitaine and her descendants years ago, but it still caught my eye.
