I am pleased to be a blog hostess for A Painter in Penang –Penang Series, Book 3, by Clare Flynn–through The Coffee Pot Book Club. Here are some details about the book and the author, and following will be my review.

This month I had planned to read a few Christmas-themed books. I loved both of these and wanted to share my thoughts with you.

I have had All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr on my “to be read” book shelf for almost a year. I finally finished this one up last month and enjoyed it.

Read my interview with Christian Historical fiction author, Jennifer Lynn Cary, and my review of her book, Relentless Joy.

I am thankful for entertaining books that hold my attention but also provide something a little meatier. With almost thirty books to her credit, Lynn Austin doesn’t disappoint. I’ve read many of her books over the years. I’ve found If I Were You to be one of her best.

In the late 1880’s, determined Elizabeth Cochrane fights for a job with a top newspaper, the New York World, but little does she know the depths she will end up plunging into.

Told in a split timeline, The Woman in the Green Dress, weaves an enchanting tale of Fleur, a young woman who inherits her deceased wartime husband’s estate and properties in Australia just after WWI and Della, master of the unconventional craft of taxidermy, who works along with her aunt to keep their family’s shop afloat in the 1850’s.

This month I had planned to read some classic horror fiction titles, although horror isn’t my usual genre of interest, I do enjoy classic books. Dracula surprised me. It was not a God-less tale with nothing but gore and blood like I supposed.

Frankenstein surprised me with its deep thoughts about life and how much control we do or don’t have over it, and that our ability to create resembles only a mere shadow, compared to The Creator.

I absolutely loved Echo Among the Stones by fellow Wisconsin author, Jamie Jo Wright. It’s the perfect read for October, with its spooky overtures.
