Now that Who Killed 'Tom Jones'? has launched, I figured that I would do a little bit of pleasure reading. I just won a book in a Goodreads giveaway--it's always so fun getting that print copy in the mail--so I thought I would start that one. I also purchased some historical fiction off of BookBub that swirled around the world of barogue opera and never got to start it.
Yes, it is extraordinarily consuming publishing a novel--that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.
So, I have used this read-a-thon to dive into these two books:
Because I write contemporary fiction and just released a contemporary mystery, I suppose I am a little more critical of Finding Harmony. I keep comparing my mystery to hers, and I think I come out looking pretty good--though I do love her cover.
Also, as an opera wonk and opera performance reviewer for Bachtrack, Aria Interrupted is right up my alley. I love historical fiction and know that it is loads too difficult to write for me to ever attempt. Thus far Interrupted Aria is exquisitely written and informative--and I am just loving it.
So, thank you, Michelle, for forcing me to dig into some new fiction with your very cool Read-a-thon. I am having a blast so far.
