Great, I had to Google the title to re-find my journal.

So. I rather enjoy reading books in pairs -- as in, two books in a row (or in parallel) about sisterhood, dragons, China or what have you. Although I adjust my reading for this sort of thing, it's even nice when it happens by chance.

For a bit of light holiday reading, I got humorous chicklit India Knight's "My Life on a Plate" out of the library. Then, at the cottage we rented in Scotland, I found "Buddha Da" by Anne Donovan, a novel in Glaswegian about a family man grasping for enlightenment. What I had not expected here was a parallel -- the main girl characters in each book were fans of Madonna.

So, erh, happy Easter, what?

Welcome back! I haven't read either of these books, currently re-reading a paranormal urban fantasy series by my favourite author Kim Harrison. She put a new book out this year & I've been re-reading the other 11 (12?) she wrote first. Sadly she is ending the series with a book in Sept, but supposedly has another underway so hopefully that will be just as good.
