I would blog, but…

I am right smack dab in the middle of Tana French’s The Likeness. Sleep is minimal, phone calls are being ignored and meals are being eaten sloppily over the pages.

I am ready to declare – Tana French is my new Dennis LeHane.

And how much do I love that she is/was primarily an actress before turning to writing?

This – THIS – is a book, people. I didn’t think it could get much better than In The Woods but is so, so does. This is a dazzling, grab-you-by-the-shoulders and won’t let go page turner with characters so complex and writing so wickedly good that already I am growing sad to say goodbye, and I have a couple hundred pages left.

    Wow. I’ve seen lots of raves around about In the Woods and thought I might get around to reading it one of these days. But I need and airplane book for a trip to visit my parents at the end of March so I’ll have to consider one of her books.

    I loved The Likeness! I had it on audio but hadn’t read In the Woods, so I had to stop listening, go back and read that, then pick up again.

    Me, I want that snow in your header so I can get snowed in and have an excuse to read.

    Not likely in Houston? Oh, shoot 😉

    Which is exactly why I haven’t read it yet: I need a few days with absolutely NOTHING to do (you’d think I’d have that with all this snow, but no…).

    Well I can’t comment on Tana French (or Denis LaHane) but I do love your new header. Is that your street?
