Reading Updates

I have decided to combine my reading updates for the two books that I am reading and to put them in one post.



Bad Grrlz' Guide to Reality by Pat Murphy: 4% read

Right now I am reading the first book in this omnibus, Wild Angel. This is about a girl (in 1850) who sees her parents murdered and then finds a pack of wolves and is then raised by a she-wolf. The book description describes it much better than I did. I was a bit wary about this book because it didn't sound like anything that I had read before and I wasn't sure how I'd react to it. So far I have really enjoyed it. I like that it takes place during the gold rush and also the relationship that is developing between Sarah and the she-wolf Wauna is really interesting. I can't wait to read more of this.



Rhett Butler's People by Donald McCaig: On page 137 out of 690

I was a bit wary to read this after I read Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley and didn't enjoy it. I have liked everything that McCaig has written about Rhett's childhood. Getting to actually see events from Rhett's point-of-view has really opened up different sides to him that you don't really see in Gone With the Wind. I can't say that I really like his sister Rosemary, or really how she is portrayed. I have just read the chapter that covers the barbeque at Twelve Oaks and I did enjoy getting into Rhett's head during all that happened at the barbeque. Rhett has always been one of my favorite characters of all time so I am enjoying this so far and am finding it to be quite interesting.
