Wkly Brief – Twitter Authors 04-2015

SummerAmidst the foot-high snow is one bare patch of garden. It’s a garden we had cleaned out last fall, removing the bulbs and spreading them among other gardens. Yet in one place smooth green leaves, tinged yellow from the salt used to remove ice dams from our roof, pop through the soil. They give hope that snow will melt and summer will arrive (although I’m not as sure about spring).

Over the winter, as I focused on writing, my book stack grew as high as the snow mountains. Gifted books and second-hand store finds overflow shelves, beds, and desks.  Lately though, perhaps because of the NH Literary Hall of Fame inaugural event, I’ve been reading more. Last month, New Hampshire writers gravitated to the top of my pile; both The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger (paperback) and My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult (audible) are underway.

ScironThis month, my Twitter Authors pick is David Rashleigh’s ScironSciron has been downloaded to my iPhone, so its available when I have a moment to spare. Rashleigh’s combination of history and mystery makes this book an entertaining read.

Many of the books on the Twitter Authors list are gems. Perhaps others aren’t. I’d like to know what you think.  If you choose to read one of the books below, please share your review here.
