Friday Reads

Friday Reads is a weekly  meme  supported by readers and other bookish folk from all over the world where everyone posts what they are reading this week. I love seeing what people from all over are reading, it not only gives me ideas on what to read if I'm ever stuck, inspires me to read something I may not have picked up otherwise, expands both my reading powers (which are already pretty powerful) and strengthens by own writing. This week I'm tackling: some old favorite for inspiration and comfort, and some new friends. I'm finishing Skin Trade by Laurell K. Hamilton I'm re-reading "Paint it Black" by Janet Fitch because I can't sty away. Plus the #fridaylistens audible version is narrated by Jennifer Jason Leigh!! I'm starting: "The Jane Austen Book Club" by Karen Joy Fowler and I'm also starting "Night Veil" by Yasmine Galenorn.  Linky Goodness!

This week I'm tackling: I've only read the first few paragraphs, but wow, I think I'm going to enjoy this. It's full of magic, which can be really tricky to write, but I'm confident this is going  to be a great read. Ms. Galenorn has a pretty intense following of loyal readers, and hopefully by the end of this, I'll be one of them!
