What I'm Reading Wednesday
Happy Wednesday everyone! Last week I finished off my Kristan Higgins marathon with Catch of the Day. I really, really liked it, but it wasn't my favourite, though I'm not sure I could say which one was - really loved Just One of the Guys. Also The Next Best Thing. My only complaint about her books is they end too abruptly - I'd like a little more satisfaction with ending, if that makes any sense at all.

Decided to switch conteporary gears and go with a Susan Elizabeth Phillips novel - and I chose It Had To Be You. Now I've already met these characters in a later book, but that's okay.The thing about this book that really struck me (and not in a great way) is the omniscient point of view in the entire first chapter. Which might also be called head hopping. Holy man, times have changed I think. That really just set me off. Into Chapter Two we seem to have settled into one character's point of view. We'll see how it goes.

Edited to add:  I don't know why this didn't post on Wednesday! But I guess Thursday night is better than never!
Wait 'till you see this list! An interesting week!

For pleasure (mostly) reading, I finished What I Did for Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips and since I quite liked it and I was at the library and they had her book Natural Born Charmer, I checked it out. And I read it too. More of that bantering dialogue which I guess is her style. Aaand since I enjoyed that book, I downloaded Glitter Baby and started it last night!

I'm also reading:

The Rockefeller Women by Clarice Stasz
Disorderly Conduct by Carroll Smith-Rosenberg
Alfred Dupont: The Man and His Family by Joseph Frazier Wall
Flapper by Joshua Zeitz
California by Kevin Starr
Victorian Women by Erna Olafson Hellerstein et al
America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates and Heroines by Gail Collins

Ha! Quite the list, huh? Truthfully I'm not reading the entire books, just select parts and you can probably guess that I'm researching. I love research!  But I'm not telling what it's all about just yet!
