What I've Been Reading

My tried-and-true method for choosing a book is to read the first page--or maybe two, if I'm still undecided at the end of the first. If a story hasn't reeled me in by then, I pass it up. It's certainly possible that I've missed out on some good books that way, but I haven't often been disappointed in the ones I've chosen.

Here are the books I've snuggled up with during our recent cold weather, every one of them a good read:

Funerals for Horses
by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Walk Me Home
by Catherine Ryan Hyde

The Goldfinch
by Donna Tartt

Until Tuesday
by Luis Carlos Montalvan

War Brides
by Helen Bryan

The Patron Saint of Liars
by Ann Patchett
