Books I’m Reading: The Thirteenth Tale

I’ve nothing against people who love truth.  Apart from the fact that they make dull companions.

Fate, at first so amenable, so reasonable, so open to negotiation, ends up by exacting a cruel revenge for happiness.

I don’t want to say too much about this book because I don’t want to give anything away, but it is definitely worth reading.  

I am a not-so-secret Gothic nerd, and this is a modern Gothic tale, full of plot twists and mystery.  Jane Eyre is mentioned enough times to be tiresome   ~ I get annoyed when authors reference beloved books excessively, it feels like they are trying to profit from another’s genius ~  but the plot and narration suck you in quickly.  This is the perfect book  for long plane/train rides, which is exactly where I read it.

      I am really glad I read this book! I am reading ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’ now, it is a “sequel” to Pride and Prejudice, with some mystery thrown in. So far I am really enjoying it!
