Last month I racked up over 15,000 sky miles, so to say I had an abundance of time to read would be an understatement. Because I was not thinking ahead, I packed a total of 0 books in my suitcase prior to flying and did something I’ve never done before–buy an airport book. There’s nothing wrong with this, but I always feel like I’m being sucked into a vortex known as Hudson News and I walk out $30 poorer with 2 packs of gum and a magazine.
|This has nothing to do with the book, but rather, it is the only photo I took on the airplane. Sadly, yes, we are THOSE honeymooners. ::hangs head in shame::|
Regardless, Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberley McCreight was one such vortex find. Admittedly, it has a slow start, but I was immediately sucked in by the back cover:
jumping from the roof of her private school—until she receives an
anonymous text saying simply, “Amelia didn’t jump.” Could she have been
murdered? Kate, a successful attorney, is determined to find out even as
she is haunted by the fear she has failed her daughter, too often
putting her career ahead of her responsibilities as a mother.”
