Reading progress update: I've read 102 out of 285 pages.
Arrowood: A Novel - Laura McHugh

since I read Hostage at the start of the New Year, I've decided that for every ten Crime & Mystery novels I read, I want ten different locales--countries. so, I want the author to be from somewhere different than the other nine books selected, or failing that, I at least want ten different countries as settings. so far, it's been a blast, globe-trotting. this book means I finally go to the United States, and Iowa along the Mississippi is giving me a great story! probably Venice next--but I don't just do Crime & Mystery reads, of course--so actually, Venice after some SF, or Fantasy, or whatever. anyway, I'm enjoying my little project, but let's see if I can hit more 4 or 5 star books soon. this one is looking good, on that front.

Arrowood: A Novel - Laura McHugh

only got a small start on this, before duty calls--but that's okay, because overall my reading pace has been supercharged lately, books flowing by. two chapters of Arrowood, and I'm anxious to get back to it; Arden's return to her grand childhood home, on the Mississippi, is for her a respite from what has scarred her--mentally and physically--in the seventeen years away from it. but she does grapple with memories of Violet and Tabitha disappearing from home all those years ago...being taken away, actually.

 

seems like it's going to be an interesting read. a bit sad, and sometimes disturbing and intense.

love the cover. gonna give this a go next. weird thing is...just as I was coming to the Booklikes website to set this up as my new Currently Reading, someone on my Updates feed was busy marking it as Read and rating it (3 stars, hmmm, but I'm still gonna read it), just moments before. never seen anything like that before--a bit creepy, actually!

excellent. a perfect, and wonderfully exotic (for me), Noir feel to it all. I love this!
