I have a question…
What are you reading right now? Do you like it? Is it the type of book you can’t put down, the kind where you’re up all night, when you say just one more page or one more chapter…
If so, I want to know about it! My kindle is full, my night stand has 3 stacks of unread books on it and yet, nothing is calling to me.
I blame it all on Kimberly Belle and Dear Wife…that hangover is still real (not sure what I’m talking about…click here to read my post).
The good news with not getting lost in a book is I’m able to work on my own. I’m 15k into a new story that I’m really enjoying and I can’t wait to make it available to you! I had one of those ‘honest’ discussions with my reader group about a publishing schedule and what kind of books they want from me, in my reader group on FB.
The writing isn’t as fast as I’d hoped … I recently took on a part-time job as an evening reception, working with an boss from my past, and those hours keep increasing which means, my writing time decreases. The good news – I’m doing this for my mental health (after 8 yrs of writing full time from home, it’s nice to get out a few days a week, get dressed in clothes other than what I’d call ‘comfy clothes’ and talk with human beings).
Okay, back to my original question…what is everyone reading? Leave a comment, let me know if it’s something I should buy..and who knows, maybe you’ll find something new to read as well!
I do have one book to recommend…The Forgotten Ones. If you haven’t read it yet, Amazon has it on sale right now – the Kindle version for only $1.99 or less.
If you like audio books – Abby’s Journey audio CD is selling for only $1.99 and apparently there’s only 1 copy left on Amazon. Who will buy it? Is it you? Let me know!
PS…If you’ve read any of my books and enjoyed them, would you be so kind to leave a review? It doesn’t matter where – Amazon, Goodreads, Bookbub, your blog…every review helps to spread the word and it’s one of the guaranteed ways to share the love!
I just started The Perfect Dress by Carolyn Brown. It is good from the first page. It has much of Carolyn’s Southern humor in it. I can’t wait to really savor it all.
I just finished reading The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. It’s about an all-woman spy network in WW1 & how one of those spies helps a teenager in the 1940s find her missing cousin in France. So. Good. I hated putting it down! I’m also reading Lizzie’s Tale by Graham Wilson, second part of the Old Balmain House Trilogy. He’s an Australian storyteller, writing about the history of his home in the Sydney suburbs. His books are something to read slowly. I kind of find him hard to get into at first, but once I do, ohmygosh – His stories are wonderful!
Hi Steena: I just finished All The Phases Of The Moon by Judy Reene Singer
I just loved everything about this book. It is a very homey and comfy book. Lots of delicious food, love, friendship. It has everything. A sequel is being written. It does not disappoint.
I’m adding it to my list to look up…thanks for the recommendation!
You are welcome. I think it is a brilliant idea, this blog of recommend books by readers. I can’t wait to add them to my growing list. Thank you Steena, for all that you do for your readers. I am going to the keys for 3 weeks, leaving in Wednesday. I still take the red Steena bag you sent me years ago. I keep my Kindle in there and the journal that is my Bible for all that is important.
Hey Steena! I just finished reading the Stillwater Girls by Minka Kent. It was a good read with twists and begins with an eerie feel. I started it late Saturday night (only read the first couple of chapters) and inhaled the rest the following day. It came out on April 9/19. Hope you find your book hangover. They’re the best hangover to have. ?
I keep hearing about this book Laurie…I’m for sure going to look it up!I love that you ‘inhaled’ it…best recommendation ever!
I just posted my review on my blog (no spoilers, obviously). It was a good read.
I don’t think you would want to read the book I’ve just started – I’m in the first chapter of “The Promise of Christmas”! I can’t wait to get engrossed in the story. I’ll leave my review on Amazon when I finish! Love, Darlene. ?
Ha! No…I think I’ve already read that one ;). I’m so glad you’re reading it and thank you so much for leaving a review!
