Thursday - Books

Bright sunlight floods the dining room through to the kitchen. I hear the wind chimes outside the deck sliding glass door. I know I have "things to do" but the book on the white kitchen table calls out to me. "Maybe just one chapter, won't hurt."
But I know it won't stop there. I have entered another world and I like it there.
I am loving this book, The White Queen, by Phillippa Gregory. I know nothing about British history. The lines of kings and queens usually confuse me. However Gregory's storytelling in this history-novel brings the characters to life. She re-imagines the story through the eyes and life of Elizabeth Woodville who is the "white queen."

Are you like this when you dive into a book and the water is warm and inviting? Just can't put it down. The story keeps carrying you along.

What was the last book you read that captured you like that?

I am asking because I know I am going to finish The White Queen yearning for another good read.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society did that for me. A great read about more recent British history during WWII.

That one is on my TBR list.
I don't know if you like mysteries, but we "found" Dana Stabenow's books on our Alaska cruise, and Kate Shugak and Mutt are my heroines!
After hearing Adiana Trigiani this week at the library, I'm going to read and re-read her books also.
