Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my to-read list:
~ The Other Typist by Susanne Rindell, reviewed by Jen at Devourer of Books
~ The Program by Suzanne Young, reviewed by Michelle at That’s What She Read
Book to movie news:
~ Robert Redford is set to direct Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods. I’ve been meaning to read it for ages; guess I better hurry up.
~ Nicole Kidman to star in and produce adaptation of Kimberly McCreight’s Reconstructing Amelia. I need to read this, too!
