48 Hour Read-A-Thon: Still a Mystery to Me
So I wound up getting a bit of a late start on the Read-A-Thon last night. I had this lovely dream of finishing my errands after work and then rushing home to curl up with my pile of books. Well, you know what they say about best laid plans...
Rather than jump immediately into my new reading list (see "What I'm Reading" sidebar), I wanted to finish two books I had been currently working my way through -- Megan Abbott's "Queenpin" and Seanan McGuire's "Rosemary and Rue". Remember when I said I didn't pick these books with any set theme? Ironically, I did still have one, although it may be saying more about my general taste in subgenres. Because all of my books, even the paranormal/supernatural ones, feature mysteries or investigations of some kind. But as a friend reminded me on twitter, San Francisco is still the town of fog and mystery, whether they're involving Sam Spade or October Daye.
