This month, I've started a number of books that are still in progress, so my list looks woefully short. I guess that's one problem with reading more than one book at a time (I usually have at least 2 going, usually 4 or 5. I'm sitting on 4 at the moment I've started and am reading.)
Greater Inclination by Edith Wharton. After remembering how much I don't care for Jane Austen last month, I picked this collection of short stories by one of my favorite authors from the same time period. I love the tragedy in most of her stories, but also the portrayal of the angst and turmoil of individuals living during that time. I love her descriptions, and her style of writing. (Checking with Amazon, I linked to the free Kindle version I read this month. There is also a novel she wrote of the same name, but this is definitely a collection of short stories.)
The Glimpses of the Moon by Edith Wharton. Once I got started, I didn't want to leave her behind. I had read this one before, but I liked coming back to it. I think it is one of her best, and I love the ending (no spoilers, though!)
Ravenous: A Food Lover's Journey by Dayna Macy. Interesting. She's an author, who decided to write a book about her year-long journey about finding out more about the food she craved -- including how it's made. It was interesting. The oddest thing to me? How it always seemed that she prepared and ate a completely different meal than what she prepared for her husband and 2 kids. I"m not sure that was the point of her book at all, but that was one of the things that I came away with.
Murder a la Mode by G.A. McKevett was about a former detective, who has a chance to appear on a reality show. It's one of those female-character-murder-mystery novels that I enjoy for the fun factor. This one didn't disappoint.
