------Reading: I've had some success with a few books lately, but haven't reviewed them yet.
Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton is the best thing she has written so far. Great psychological novel with wonderful descriptions of the Falkland Islands. Very different from the Gothic horror and the Lacy Flint series, Bolton takes an entirely new tact with this one.
Uprooted by Naomie Novik. I enjoyed the first book in the Temeraire series and read a few more before losing interest. This new fantasy was a rare pleasure.
The last couple of days have been perfect for working in the garden--but the pollen is so bad that my eyes water and itch and swell. Then my entire face itches. This problem is worse than in previous years, and I'm not sure what I'm allergic to, but it happens within minutes of being outside. Took a Claritin this morning, so hope to get some weeding done today.
