June Musings and Reading Recommendations Captured from Webpage
Summer. We've planted a garden in the backyard. Amidst all of the craziness associated with a book coming out and buying a house and unpacking, we managed to plant a rose garden (actually, Toni planted the whole back yard, but we did the roses together).
June Reading Recommendations
The Hallowed Hunt, by Lois McMaster Bujold.
Lois returns to a new part of the world she built in The Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls. A very fun read, with fabulous scenery along the way and quite a few interesting characters to meet. She is one of my favorite line-by-line writers and one of my favorite creators of worlds - a combination worth stopping to read. I highly recommend any of her work, and particularly the three in this series (and you do not need to read this third book in any order in relation to the others). I sincerely hope she returns to this world yet again.
The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini
A fabulous, tender, illuminating novel.
