Goodreads - Raven Stole the Moon

I signed up at Goodreads at a friend's urging a while ago goodreads. It seemed like a good idea. Share new ideas. See what everybody else is reading. I never really made my list and kept up with it (oh, the guilt). No time. Plus, I didn't really think anybody cares what I'm reading anyway. So since I seem to forget everything I did the day before, I'll just keep putting my goodreads here in my own little space so I can find them again someday. Latest find - Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein.
"When a grieving mother returns to the remote Alaskan town where her young son drowned, she discovers that the truth about her son's death is shrouded in legend--and buried in a terrifying wrinkle between life and death...."
I read the Art of Racing in the Rain by the same author last year and loved it.
Written from a dog's perspective about car racing and so much more (but I can't remember) it was fascinating and so well written that I actually did remember the guy's name. Here's a blurb - A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human only a dog could tell it....

So when Raven appeared on my doorstep by fellow book lover, Jo (thanks, Jo!), I couldn't wait to get started. It's totally different from Racing. Set in Alaska. Some Native lore. Great characters. Loved it.

Currently by the bed, Prayers for Sale
Another bestseller Laurel handed to me on the plane on the way to Amsterdam. Who needs when you've got goodfriends like that? Maybe we've got our own bestseller in the making.
