You just might have too many books

when you find a bag of them while tidying up.  And you don’t remember when you bought them!  Within the last 6 months, anyway.  Inside said bag?  Sepulchre, by Kate Mosse.  This is my second kick at the can with Kate Mosse…last year I read Labyrinth.  Both enjoyable reads, but all in all, I actually preferred Sepulchre.   I know people who would be horrified at the idea of using Tarot cards to cross the border between our world and the spirit world.   Although it might add credence to their belief that the Tarot is evil.  Whatever your beliefs may be, it doesn’t stop this from being a good read.   Unlike Labyrinth, I had a hard time putting this down.  Maybe it was the musical aspect, or I identified with the characters better, but I found it pretty gripping.  While there is some cross-over between the two, you don’t need to have read one to enjoy the other.  Its funny, I would have thought that I’d prefer Labyrinth because it is about in part the Cathars and their persecution out of Carcassonne, and I’m very interested in that part of religious history.  They are both good books though-worth checking out, certainly.

I also went to the library for the first time is quite some time and got a popcorn book.  (Like a popcorn movie?) Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell.  This will be a lazy day read in the sunshine, I think.  I’ll report back later!
