Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott

I was named after Josephine in little women. I read this book I LOVE it!

Aletta is historical fiction set prior to and during the Boer War in South Africa. Most of the characters are Dutch settlers and much of the novel centers around romance between a Dutch woman and Englishman. There is also some intrigue and a case of mistaken identity.
A well written book from an author who is knowledgeable about Africa, the landscape and politics. I would definitely read more by this author.

Hard science ficiton that is well worth the read... but if you are not a fan of this particular genre it may be too much like hard work.

Five Nights

by Victoria Cross

I enjoyed this book until the ending when I was completely disgusted and shocked. To describe a pregnant woman as "disfigured" and to characterize her as unlovable?? Or that the characters wouldn´t love each other the same if one of them were to become disfigured/disabled?? Pretty shallow stuff.

Author of the Day

Elin Barnes
Elin Barnes has done many different things in her life, like being a flight instructor, working for a criminal appeals lawyer and working for many big name technology companies in Silicon Valley (Microsoft, Google etc.). But the one thing that she never thought would actually happen is to write (and finish) a book. Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series. As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
