It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme “It’s Monday! What are You Reading? “, at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.

What I Read Last Week
I missed last week – my hubby was finally released from hospital (after 6 weeks- definitely not the same as when he went in: before he could walk and was independent and had a working, although compromised kidney; after: unsteady, just a few steps with a walker and now on dialysis). It was a challenge the first few days (well, really the first week). He still has a long road to recovery.

So here are the books I read over the past two weeks – sharing them all because some were sooo good. (Books really do help when stressed!)

Week 1:

seeker bookcover

Seeker: A Sea Odyssey by Rita Pomade. I read this for a WOW blog tour and really enjoyed this memoir of their voyage at sea. Lots of adventures. (Check my review here)

mistletoe kises31644691._SY475_

Mistletoe and Cocoa Kisses by Stacy Eaton. A quick ebook romance – to celebrate Christmas in July.

 

two lives of LB46225061._SY475_

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver. So enjoyed this novel, loved the premise: What would you do if your partner died?

 

storm fury40291564

Storm and Fury by Jennifer Armentrout. This was the first in her new fantasy series and I needed this world to disappear into. A great read.

This past week:

crescent city44778083

House of Earth and Blood; Crescent City by Sarah J. Maas. What a fantastic read. Only problem? Have to wait another year for the second!

 

a. project42592725

The Authenticity Project by Claire Pooley. Julian leaves a journal in a café with his truths written in it, encouraging others to do the same. It starts a chain of events –what would you write?”  It was a wonderful read.

 

shadows in the mist43877121._SY475_

Shadows in the Mist by Jeri Westerson. This was the third in her fantasy series and was a fun read.

come away with me 23569705._SY475_

Come Away with Me by Karma Brown. Another book about grief and loss and love and about fulfilling one’s bucket list. So enjoyed this novel.

What I’m Reading Now
The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren
Two Summers by Aimee Friedman

On Writing by Stephen King. Long on my TBR, reading this now as part of a book club

What’s Up Next – STILL! and determined to finish them – sometime!
Keep it Moving by Twyla Tharp.
Becoming by Michelle Obama

  1. Oh I do need to try a Maas book and maybe a an Armentrout too. I hope things are improving a bit with your hubby, so hard for you both. Been thinking of you and the challenges you are dealing with. Take care.
