Carol O'connell- I am reading her most recent book, The Chalk Girl and am enjoying it. She writes very complex mysteries.

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. My Dad read the newspaper to me from day one and Momma read me the Bible and to sleep every night. My Grands kept books to read to me and for me to read to them. I was an early lover and reader of the printed page.

It is a shame after reading all these books and now they have Tom Cruise as the lead all 5ft nothing way to fuck it up!! No reflection on one of my favorite writers!!

The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent (Set in the Puritan era, Heretic tells the story of the first woman to be hung as a witch in Salem through the eyes of her 9-year-old daughter whose voice has a rawness of a child matured too soon. Heretic is a powerful tale of a perilous time.)

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Nostalgia. Even looking at the cover reminds me of the magical childhood days spent reading under a big tree, under the bed (escaping chores), under the covers (after lights out).
