It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme, “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?” hosted at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.
I did read more this week -although the stress level is still high. The CT has been ordered -for this Wed (which is very quick by Ontario standards). And the polyp is huge, in the sigmoid colon. Then the doctor consult is Friday. Surgery is looking like it will be required whether the lesion is cancerous or not. A scary time Continue with prayers please.
What I Read Last Week
I read 5 novels and 10 pix books – 2 women’s fiction, 1 romance, 1 middle grade novel and an historical romance.
The Keepsake Sisters by Lori Wilde. Imagine being separated at birth and then reuniting decades later. One of the twins needs a kidney – but will she be able to ask her twin? Having been a living donor for my husband 17 years ago, this was a fascinating read. And for the most part, they got a lot of it right.
The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis. Another engaging story about kidney transplants and this time about half sisters. Enjoyed this one as well.
Tools of Engagement by Tessa Bailey. This was the third one the series and I enjoyed this one the most. Love the older woman-younger man, enemies to lovers’ themes.
Lady Maggie’s Secret Scandal by Grace Burrowes. Another in her historical romance Windham series, which I really enjoyed.
The Someday Birds by Sally J. Pla. This MG novel was so well written. Really enjoyed this story, of a boy with autism who must find the birds on his hospitalized father’s someday list, as his family crosses the country to visit him.
