A Touch of Stardust
Author: Kate Alcott [Website][Facebook]
Publisher: Anchor Books
Length: 290 + "Epilogue"
Obtained: Library book club copy
Why this book?:
This was my month-long book discussion pick.
I chose this book initially thinking it sounded interesting, but when it came time to read it I was dragging my feet. I was 2/3 of the way into the month with only one chapter read. I finally actually dedicated myself to reading it and finished it in one swoop.
I enjoyed this, though it isn't necessarily in a usual genre of choice. The time period and setting were interesting. I've only watched Gone With the Wind once (during my grad school years because I felt it was a must-see), and I've never read the book. I didn't care for the movie then, but now I might need to re-watch. If I can build myself up to nearly 4 hours of a movie I could potentially still not like. Maybe if I look at the actors instead of the characters?
