I grew up on Cape Cod and the Connecticut shoreline and now live outside of Boston, much too far from the ocean. I am rarely without a book in my hand. A few of my favorites include: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison, and Every Last One by Anna Quindlen.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for checking out my bio. I love a good Cape Cod story, as you might imagine. In fact am currently reading Land's End: A Walk in Provincetown. How about this: I'll read yours if you'll read mine, a review in exchange for a review, posted on both Goodreads and Amazon. If this sounds okay, email me an e-book copy at kirstenfeldmanbooks (@) gmail.com so I can reply with same.
Happy reading everyday,
Kirsten(less)
Kirsten B. Feldman I write through it. A deadline is a deadline, and stories are there for the taking, if you listen inside.

You may think you don't need a recasting of The Taming of the Shrew in modern-day Baltimore, but I am here to tell you that you do. Kate, a.k.a. the shrew, will set you on your ear, as she does everyone she encounters. I won't give away the ending, but let's just say that the usual person does not do the taming. As well, you need all the other bits of the fantabulous Hogarth Shakespeare Project...

The voices for this—the masterful Paul Boehmer—make a rollicking good tale great. If you are going on a road trip, most especially with children, bring this along, and the miles will fly by at lightning speed.

Kirsten Feldman Due out September 8: On the Way to Everywhere, the story of Harry's efforts to find her place in the world (no, not that Harry, but with a charm all her own)!

Kirsten Feldman My new one is coming soon...having so much fun with Harry and Frances Bean. Keep an eye here for updates :)

Kirsten Feldman Sometimes after reading a book that I've loved,it can be so hard to choose a new book to begin. There's the rosy glow from the previous book, and who wants to dissipate that with a dud, and there's the high bar set by the previous book--what if the new one doesn't have characters to love, a plot to thrill, a setting to relish? At least with my To Be Read pile, recommended by other huge readers, I can rest assured that my odds are good!

Kirsten Feldman That's me, the book talker--better than just about anything!

Kirsten Feldman Ha ha, yes, I try to look at it as how great is it that there are so many good books out there to read :-) My list seems to grow daily, too, but I love having this place to store them rather than little random slips of paper! I look forward to see what you read, too.


message 9: by Sandy

Sandy Thanks for your friendship. I don't get online to write as much as I would like to comment as I am trying to dwindle down my TBR pile this year (my only goal). It seems that I am not having much success, I seem to be adding more books than what I am reading- LOL We have a lot of books in common so I am anxious to see what you read.


Kirsten Feldman It was a banner week for YA reading last week, since I finally got to read both Into the Still Blue and Eleanor & Park, two totally different books but both great. Veronica Rossi's trilogy is my favorite of the four dystopian trilogies I read in the last year, five if you count Margaret Atwood's, and Rainbow Rowell understands both the teenage life and the life of the outsider.


Kirsten Feldman What is it about the "Annes" (Tyler, Patchett, Lamott, Packer, Proulx) that they write so tellingly and beautifully?


Kirsten Feldman That sly Margaret Atwood, she did it, she pulled it out, she made me like MaddAddam more than The Year of the Flood and almost, almost as much as Oryx and Crake. Dear, dear, Toby. I'll say no more.


Kirsten Feldman Thanks, Janet Beasley, for her Excerpt Extravaganza featuring No Alligators in Sight all this week. Visit her site for the whole post and many other great finds!

Kirsten Feldman I put my name on the library list for Lost Lake months ago so I would get it when it came out. I started yesterday and have read about half, but I'm still waiting for the magic! Each of her other books I have rooted for the main characters like crazy, but this one feels forced to me. Onward.


Kirsten Feldman Miles (Pudge) Halter has that singular John Green self-deprecating humor going. I am enjoying Looking for Alaska by John Green, though Alaska herself is a little much.


Kirsten Feldman Thanks to Kayla Harrison for the great review of my book on her blog http://kdhreviews.com/. Check out all her other picks for your holiday shopping (and reading) needs.


Kirsten Feldman After a few books that were just okay, I've finally started one that is really compelling, The Goldfinch. I know, I know, 771 pages, but I like the adolescent narrator, Theo. Is he reliable??
