Set aside Owen Meany while I read Birds of Paradise from the library, which I'm not really liking all that much.

I finishsed reading Birds of Paradise and admit to skipping parts so that I could get it back to the library on time. It was written in four POVs; I skipped the two I didn't care about. Well, that I didn't care about the most. There was one central mystery that I wanted to resolve, and the two POVs I read were the ones that mattered. All in all, it was very well written with beautiful language and imagery. I just found half of the main characters unpleasant/unlikeable and the other half okay. The story itself was very slowly developed, which led to ennui on my part. Maybe it just wasn't the type of book for me, though I've read plenty of books about dysfunctional families that I found a pleasure to read, that moved along at a good pace, and that were real page turners. All in all, I'd give this a "meh."

I'm now reading Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness, the sequel to Discovery of Witches, which I loved and raced through. Suetu had an extra (!) free copy of this, which I was lucky to receive.

I still skim through old pages here looking for recommendations....which led me to: "The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey" by Candace Millard. Very good book.

Now reading: "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield
