Reading Materials: October 2017

50. Demelza, Winston Graham (Library). This is the second book in Graham’s Poldark series, the basis for the current(ly AWESOME) Masterpiece on PBS series of the same name. I loved this book even more than the first one, partly because the characters are better-developed, and partly because this book got me through the first part of a rather awful month.

XX. Dragonfly in Amber, Diana Gabaldon (Library). I read Outlander a few years ago and hated it. Then I started watching the TV show and loved it. Torn by my feelings, I decided to give the second book in the series a try. This was foolish. The second season of the TV show is quite different from the book, and far better. When I got the “nearly due notice” from the library, I shrugged my shoulders and let this one go. ABANDONED at 40%. It pains me to abandon a book, but I’m also too old to stick it out for the sake of bragging rights. Or something.

On a more personal note, my brain has been mush for most of this month. My mother died at the end of September, and October has been taken up with her memorial service and selling her house. I will do better next month.
