THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Name a book that you hope to re-read some day.


Currently, I am reading Blood Defense, by Marcia Clark, and even though I haven’t been reading very much this weekend due to catching up after my vacation, I am loving what I have read so far.  I enjoy the author’s writing style and the character of Samantha Brinkman.





Blurb:  First in a new series from bestselling author and famed O. J. Simpson trial prosecutor Marcia Clark, a “terrific writer and storyteller” (James Patterson).

Samantha Brinkman, an ambitious, hard-charging Los Angeles criminal defense attorney, is struggling to make a name for herself and to drag her fledgling practice into the big leagues. Sam lands a high-profile double-murder case in which one of the victims is a beloved TV star—and the defendant is a decorated veteran LAPD detective. It promises to be exactly the kind of media sensation that would establish her as a heavy hitter in the world of criminal law.

Though Sam has doubts about his innocence, she and her two associates (her closest childhood friend and a brilliant ex-con) take the case. Notorious for living by her own rules—and fearlessly breaking everyone else’s—Samantha pulls out all the stops in her quest to uncover evidence that will clear the detective. But when a shocking secret at the core of the case shatters her personal world, Sam realizes that not only has her client been playing her, he might be one of the most dangerous sociopaths she’s ever encountered.


As for the Random Question:  I purchased a book a while ago that I hope to reread some day.  It is one I read when I was a teenager, so I am curious as to how I would feel about it now.  That book is Rebecca, by Daphne Du Maurier.






What are you musing about today?  What are you reading/planning?

    Rebecca is one of those classics I always mean to read but never have. Wonderful cover though, it’s so dark and mysteriously creepy! Enjoy Blood Defense. 🙂
