Wednesday reading — impostors, kidnappers and other criminals

What I've been reading

I read The Borrower, a book I wound up relating to deeply as it is about a woman working in a library in a small town in Missouri in spite of not having a library science degree who frequently references and even pastiches children's books. I never kidnapped any children to try to save them from their bigoted parents, but I can certainly understand the impulse.

I read Brat Farrar, which I would have done a lot sooner if it had been clearer from the title that it was about impostors and horses, both of which are like catnip to me.

I read The Daugher of Time, which was also utterly delightful. Alan Grant/Brent Carradine/Richard III, temporally-challenged OT3! Their enthusiasm is so charming.

I read Through the Woods, five nicely creepy stories with excellent art.

What I'm reading next

Ugh, my library system only has large print copies of the other Alan Grant books and I don't enjoy reading large print. I have placed holds on them anyway, of course.

HAD YOU NOT READ THE DAUGHTER OF TIME BEFORE? I HAVE FAILED YOU AS AN LJ FRIEND.

I also definitely thought that there might have been time travel involved. Usually my secondhand information is more accurate!
