This week's Monday Musing from www.shouldbereading.wordpress.com asks, "What's the last thing you stayed up half the night reading because you couldn't put it down?"
This is a very timely question for me, as I pretty much stayed up half the night last night reading Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. What a compelling read (I finished it at 1:30 a.m.)! How compelling, you may ask? Well, I have two young children who often are awake by 6 a.m., so I am almost always asleep before 10:30 p.m. But I could not put it down. I am paying for it right now (2 cups of coffee and a large latte later) but I think it was worth it. Victorian England, pickpockets, orphans, insane asylums, class issues, and a lesbian love affair. Good stuff!
