I’ve been making steady progress through my TBR list! It’s such a good feeling, although I’m still waiting for inspiration to write. And there’s always a steady stream of new books, so I have to be mindful of adding some books that have spent a good long time on on my ereader to my immediate TBR list. Anyway, here are the books that I had chosen for this month. If you’re interested in reading my Goodreads reviews for any of these, just click on the book covers:
Color of Danger by Ruth J. Hartman. This is the third book in Ruth’s Sullyard Sisters triology. In this segment the youngest Sullyard sister, Patience, struggles to be seen as a woman rather than as the baby sister. She’s excited about the opportunity to paint a panorama for a nearby falconer, but feels limited when Walter, her brother-in-law’s younger brother, is sent along to accompany her. From this series I learned about miniature panoramas, and a little about birds – both are topics that don’t come up in our family discussions! As usual, Ruth’s newest release is full of humor as well as detail, making this a fun and entertaining read.
Heartsight by Kay Springsteen. Having read several of Kay’s other books I knew I’d love this, and now that I’ve read it I’m eager to read the rest of the series. Kay has strong ties to the military and she’s an amazing researcher, so you know situations are accurately portrayed. Dan is a Marine lieutenant who’s been blinded in action, and he’s at a loss. Bella, a little girl whose mother is in town to close up a family home, finds him and helps Dan find his way to self-realization and love. It’s awesome. You really need to read this!
Dandelions on the Road by Brooke Williams. As I mentioned last month, Brooke asked me to read and review the third book in her Dandelion series, since I had previously read the first one. I decided I’d have a better handle on the final book if I read the one in between – and I’m so glad I did! The Dandelion series deals with the foreign (to me) world of reality television, particularly the ones that deal with finding one’s true soulmate. This is a hilarious take on a Midwest town’s local version of the popular Bachelor/Bachelorette shows.
On the dock for next month:
After the Final Dandelion #3 in the Dandelion series. I need to read this first because I have to write a review for a blog post before the 17th. In this installment, the bachelor from Book 1 and his fiancée are getting married, and the station decides to make the wedding into a TV special.
Heartsent by Kay Springsteen. This is #2 in the Heart series, after Heartsight. Now that I’ve experienced Kay’s coastal North Carolina town, I need to find out who else is there – so I’m diving into the second of the Heart series!
Camp Wedding: The Heartsight Nuptials by Kay Springsteen – This is #3 in the Heart series, and it’s short, so I figure I should be able to squeeze this in. In this one, the main characters from Heartsight (Book One) get married.
Duke by Day, Rogue by Night by Katherine Bone. I’ve read bits and pieces so that I can post them on social media for Eskape press, but I really need to read the whole thing! I’m determined to get it done this month.
So what’s your reading goal for the month?
