ANNOUNCEMENT
After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!
2017 edit
I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

Mind of Winter by Laura Kasischke

Book Description:
Laura Kasischke, the critically acclaimed and nationally bestselling poet and author of The Raising, returns with Mind of Winter, a dark and chilling thriller that combines domestic drama with elements of psychological suspense and horror — an addictive tale of denial and guilt that is part Joyce Carol Oates and part Chris Bohjalian.

On a snowy Christmas morning, Holly Judge awakens with the fragments of a nightmare floating on the edge of her consciousness. Something followed them from Russia. Thirteen years ago, she and her husband Eric adopted baby Tatty, their pretty, black-haired Rapunzel, from the Pokrovka Orphanage #2. Now, at fifteen, Tatiana is more beautiful than ever — and disturbingly erratic.

As a blizzard rages outside, Holly and Tatiana are alone. With each passing hour, Tatiana’s mood darkens, and her behavior becomes increasingly frightening... until Holly finds she no longer recognizes her daughter.

Laura Kasischke is hands down one of my favorite authors. The way she writes is mesmerizing, and her stories are based in the here and now, but always seem to be a step or two off the norm, so what may seem like an ordinary occurrence actual is not normal at all through her eyes. When I heard she was coming out with a new novel, I knew I'd be picking it up on release day before I even knew what it was about. After reading the description, I was even more sold, and then I saw the cover and fell in love.

Mind of Winter will be released on March 25, 2014, from Harper.
