Having finished To Kill a Mockingbird, I returned to the library and picked up two new books to read. These two will be read simultaneously with Whoever Fights Monsters (my current read). I have never read either of the authors before, but I made a promise to myself that I would try some different authors (and get out of my comfort zone of favorites). The first, Nuclear Winter Wonderland, is by Joshua Corin. According to the jacket cover it is his debut novel. The second novel I've selected to read is by Anne Cushman and is entitled Enlightenment for Idiots, a novel about an author with a new assignment that may change her life (based on reading the book flap).
Of course, having finished my last three reads (and based on the fact that I was keeping the three plots running in my head at the same time--see one of my earlier blog posts), I offer something completely different:
To Change Miss Mary Mockingbird's Heart
by Jodi Lee McCullough
Tangled Tales Books, a division of Warped Imagination Press
To Change Miss Mary's Mockingbird's Heart is the story of Mary Mockingbird, Atticus Finch, and Batman the Robin. Added to this cast of characters are Claire and Dill. A romance in the making or just a change of heart? While Atticus protects the jailbird, Batman the Robin, Mary falls in love with Dill, the doctor from the 19th century who pioneers heart transplants. Claire, meanwhile, just wants her father to win the freedom of Batman the Robin. In the end, they all live happily ever after.
