It’s Monday! What are You Reading?


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.

Keepsake sisters 53487123

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.

summer deal 49228821._SX318_SY475_

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 49203369

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.

Someday Birds 26800718._SY475_

  1. Thinking of you Bev and your hubby, scary times, may you have the support you need and certainly in my prayer. I enjoyed the jill Shalvis book I read this week and now the one here sounds worth reading too.

  2. Thinking of you and your husband and hoping for a good result. I’m glad reading is providing a distraction. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    • Thank you – yes we did after a long week of waiting, again. The4 CT scan showed no sigh of spread. And it’s looking more like pre-cancerous. But still needs to be removed.
