Some earlier posts (somewhere) referenced this book as well.  I put it on reserve at my library.

Re: Heretic's Daughter

I read The Heretic's Daughter, and I loved it.  I have also read The Lace Reader ( I actually read that prior to The Heretic's Daughter)

Re: Community Room

Thanks Aprilh for the link.  I especially liked the time-line events.  Now more than ever before I want to visit Salem in the Autumn.   :smileywink:

Re: Heretic's Daughter

I have both THE HERETICS DAUGHTER  and THE LACE READER on my TBR stack.  I would recommend SUSANNAH MORROW by Megan Chance as another book dealing with The Salem Witch Trials.  It refers to the Rev. Parris and the girls which are mentioned in our current book,  THE PHYSICK BOOK OF DELIVERANCE DARE.:smileytongue:

I am going to request Susannah Morrow from the library as soon as I sign out.  The Heretic's Daughter is waiting for me to pick up and I recently read The Lace Runner.  I read The Crucible last weekend and am now into TPBODD.  Do we notice a theme???:smileyvery-happy:

Re: Community Room

You won't sound dense at all. I know I'm posting similiar to others, but it is hard to get through all the posts, there are so many new ones each day. Just post what you want and don't worry:smileyhappy:

Re: Heretic's Daughter

Thanks. I read The Lace Reader when it first came out. So I gues it's time for The Heretic's Daughter. I'm not sure who posted it, but they are right, there is a theme going!

Re: Heretic's Daughter

The Heretic's Daughter is in my TBR pile and my experience with TPBODD is making me want to dive right into that selection next!  I'd be up to "comparing notes" on THD via PM if anyone is interested!

You can just start a thread in the community room, or even the Fiction Board if it's okay with the moderator to discuss the book.

Kate Morton's new book

[ Edited ]

For those of you who read The House at Riverton (our first FL selection), Kate Morton has a new book coming out this week! (link below) I have already pre-ordered mine and can't wait for it to come.  For those of you who haven't read The House at Riverton, consider putting it on your TBR list. The First Look opportunity has certainly introduced me to new authors and writing styles. I am already anticipating Katherine Howe's next book. Thank you B&N!

Thank you for the recommendation!  I've added The House at Riverton to my wish list.

I've got a GC for B&N, now I just need to narrow down which book(s) I want to get NOW!

Has anyone read The Vanishing Point by Mary Sharratt?  It caught my eye on a book review blog I follow.

Thanks Donna! I enjoyed The House at Riverton. I will certainly check out Kate Morton's new book. Lauren Groff, another of the first First Look authors, had a new book this year, Delicate Edible Birds and Other Stories - Delicate Edible Birds and Other Stories  

I was not a fan of her first book, The Monsters of Templeton but, thought others might be interested in her new book.

Yes, I read it with my book club a few months ago.  We all enjoyed the book and had a great discussion. I would definitely recommend reading it.

Re: Heretic's Daughter

I started it last night (that's one of the things I love about my Kindle, if I want a cetain book at midnight, I can order it and start reading immediately) and I had a hard time putting it down to go to sleep.

I finished Deliverance, or I would have been up devouring that.

Re: Unconnected and random perhaps

This maybe totally unconnected and quite random (Yes! I have ADD!:smileyvery-happy:) but this is The Community Room so I hope I am not commiting some huge faux pas.  And there's a bit of a lull in the usual posting frenzy.

 

The only connection I can "use" to avoid the possible wrath of the posting police :smileytongue: is that it's about dogs, lovers of dogs, and Arlo is a dog in TPBODD (smooth huh?) and has a special relationship with Connie. 

 

This may not be your genre of choice but has anyone read The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein?  Denny and Enzo certainly have a special relationship as do Bernie and Chet in Dog On It by Spencer Quinn.

 

Also a parallel in The Art of Racing in the Rain, Denny is falsely accused and suffers great loss because of it. (I'll say no more in case you want to check it out.)

 

And just to be fair to the cat lovers, I loved Dewey!!!:smileyhappy:

 

And I did get The Heretic's Daughter today from the library and The Crucible from Hollywood Video.  Will be watching it tonight.  Read the book last weekend.  Continuing to read TPBODD.  I have read ahead so I will have to be conscientious when I post; keeping to the schedule.  

 

Just want to say I appreciate people posting and commenting about the books they have read and enjoyed or not.  Thanks for sharing.:smileyhappy:

Re: Unconnected and random perhaps

I have read both The Art of Racing in the Rain (very poignant)and Dog On It (fun mystery)and loved them both! It was fun to read from the dog's perspectives. I also have a cat loving friend who loved Dewey and that is on my TBR list. :smileywink:
