"If you go out in the woods today, You're sure of a big surprise."*

I'm sorry, I'd write a real post about our party (successful), or some new books I snagged at the library (cheap!), or the psycho wife of a friend I had to block on FB (Sheesh! Grow UP!), or the boxes of books that appeared at my door (thanks, Sueeus! You are a sweetheart!) - but I am burying my nose in this till I finish it, I have no fingernails left, or both.

I read that a little while ago and really enjoyed it even though or perhaps because I had read some spoilers on Badger's blog.

I recently read her next book: The Likeness and loved that, too although the initial premise is not believable. It reminded me of The Secret History by Donna Tartt (that I also read recently and loved).

Oh, I loved that book too! And the next one. One of those books that you can't stop reading.

Another book that awaits me on my shelves - your view may push it up the pile!

Also, as to your enquiry, I have read The Monsters of Templeton and loved it (thanks for asking). I think I put in in my top ten of last year.

The Likeness is also wonderful but like ssheers I found the initial premise a little unbelievable but I quickly got over that.
