I have a memory like a sieve, apparently

September 14, 2010

Because I realized last night that I bought yet another book this weekend that I haven’t mentioned. That’s, what, three books I bought–just this week–that I’m not going to have time to read. And there’s no way I’m not going to the bookstore again this weekend. I need my fix. I’m completely book-greedy. If I were homeless, the sign that I would hold up would say “Will Work for Books”. Perhaps this is a little unhealthy? Oh, well.

This weekend I also bought The Twin’s Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted.

Here’s the Amazon description:

Lucy Sexton is stunned when a disheveled woman appears at the door one day…a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Lucy’s own beautiful mother. It turns out the two women are identical twins, separated at birth, and raised in dramatically different circumstances. Lucy’s mother quickly resolves to give her less fortunate sister the kind of life she has never known. And the transformation in Aunt Helen is indeed remarkable. But when Helen begins to imitate her sister in every way, even Lucy isn’t sure at times which twin is which. Can Helen really be trusted, or does her sweet face mask a chilling agenda?
Filled with shocking twists and turns, THE TWIN’S DAUGHTER is an engrossing gothic novel of betrayal, jealousy, and treacherous secrets that will keep you guessing to the very end.
It’s teen, it’s gothic, it’s got a cool cover–what’s not to like? Plus the love story seems to be of the childhood enemies variety, which is one of my personal favorites.
See you later today.
