Something new

Trying some new authors.  James Morrow (The Last Witchfinder) and Daniel Stashower (The Dime Museum Murders).  Actually, I've read Stashower before--The Beautiful Cigar Girl.  But this is a different genre.

Are you trying anything new?


  1. Michele - I like stretching myself by trying new authors. Of course, as luck would have it, you posted this at a time when I don't happen to be trying a new author; I'm catching up with my favourite authors' latest releases. But I do like to try new authors.

  2. I have been sent several different genres to read by writer friends. I love the variety in my reading life now. I truly had missed out by just reading historicals.

  3. Nothing new right now. I'm into another Saul Bellow raptus (happens from time to time). And since it's summer, I have to read my beach book once again; The Gambler by Dostoyevsky. I've read it ten times (or more), but here we go again >:D

    Cold As Heaven

  4. I just finished the Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking - a young adult fantasy trilogy no less - and I am well over the age of 16 :). It was excellent and I couldn't put it down. I've never read fantasy before being a pretty hardcore mystery suspense reader (with an occasional "cozy" tucked here and there.) I really enjoyed it!
