A Reading Vocation

"I Must Read, Read, and Read. It is my Vocation." - Thomas Merton

This is where I chronicle my reading life.  I also blog about writing at Lacey's Late-night Editing.


New Book Arrivals: An Odd Assortment

Dark Life: Book 1 - Kat Falls Say What You Will - Cammie McGovern Rusalka - C.J. Cherryh

Three new books waiting to be acknowledged and then put away.


Dark Life by Kat Falls - I saw a news segment about this book when it was first published and immediately became interested, mostly because I am fascinated by the idea of living beneath the ocean. I even went to an underwater hotel for my honeymoon. Truth be told, I wanted to read this book while I was under water, but I was too nervous to submerge a library book, and it hasn't become available via Paperbackswap until now.


Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern - I got this as an ARC from my dear bookseller friend (every time that group of friends gets together, I come home with more books!) She recommended it, and a review in School Library Journal also aroused my interest.


Rusalka by C.J. Cherryh - This is one of the July/August group reads for Into the Forest, a Goodreads group I belong to for lovers of myths and fairy tales. I snatched it up via Bookmooch.
