I am super excited to have come across this book today.
Janet McNally’s style shows her past as a poet. Music seems to play a large part in her writing, and I suspect she enjoys the play of words as much as the unfolding of the story.
I can’t wait to dig into this one. Interestingly, it’s about a ballet dancer, as is one of my (still unpublished because I’m looking for an agent) young adult books.
I’m a few pages in and hope I like it as much as I enjoyed her previous book, Girls in the Moon.
I just finished reading My Antonia by Willa Cather as part of the #2020classics reading challenge. I found it completely engrossing. If you are hesitant to read classics because you think they are boring or hard to understand, give this one a try. It was easy to read and rich with history and emotion.
I’m also rereading The Screwtape Letters, trying to stick to a chapter a day and think about the topics.
What book treasures, old or new, have you discovered (or rediscovered) lately?
