The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson

Miss Adventure managed to bring flu into our house and share it with everyone. I had enough energy to write a book review yesterday, but by the time I had a chance to sit down and type it up, I was out of energy. I feel a bit more energetic tonight, though.

I picked this book for our January book club book. I thought some nonfiction might be a nice change of pace. Plus, with Patterson as the author, it had high potential for enjoyment, or at least be a quick read.

Length: 332 pages

Setting: Egypt, 1357-1324 BCE, The Valley of the Kings, 1900-1920s, and present day Palm Springs, Florida Continue reading

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Borrows

This was our book club choice for October. Many of us had read it already (it’s really hard to find a book that 1/3 of us haven’t read. That’s what you get for having a group of dedicated readers in a book club), but we had never done it as a book club book. The library had enough copies so we decided to read it again.
