Books of January

I read Wolf Hall several years ago, but I re-read it because my book club is reading it and there was so much I didn't remember.  I loved it the first time and the second time, too.  I am fascinated with Tudor England and this book brought Thomas Cromwell, who has always been a sinister and shadowy figure, to life.  A+

Another book club selection.  Pleasant enough story revolving around a knitting shop in a small New England town.  Sweet but not great.  B

Book club again.  This is Toni Morrison's first novel and it reminded me why I can never get through one of her books.   Yes, it's a great American novel but not to my taste.

A short and loving look at the death of the author's father-in-law with suggestions on what to do to prepare for the end of a loved one's life.  A

I had a good friend who did her Masters Thesis on Toni Morrison. Seeing Morrison's work through her eyes made all the difference in the world.

These all capture my interest. Will have to add them to the BTR list.

I don't know why I can't read Toni Morrisson. Just doesn't appeal to me, I guess. Thanks for stopping by.
