Nope, not the kind I have to return to the library. In fact I haven’t stepped foot into a library since we moved to the house other than to try to vote last November. Why? I simply have far too many books on my bookshelf that need to be read right now to even consider taking one out.
I’m a slow reader. Painfully slow in fact. Because of that it takes me years to catch up with what’s hot right now. I never seem to get ahead to keep up with the trends. Oh well. Because of that I have some really old books on my shelf that need to be read like asap.
Two friends from the Scottsdale Society of Women Writers wrote and released books last year and I’m in possession of both. Those are at the top of my priority list for must reads.
The first is Words Falling Like Water by Sonya Vaughn, the other CrossRoads by Lori Hicks. I’m really interested in both of their stories and to experience their writing styles because both ladies are fun and sweet people.
In addition to those novels I have Poisoned Pins and Tickled to Death by Joan Hess, Three Cups of Tea by Mortenson and Relin, The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards, Faithful Place by Tana French, Brain by Robin Cook, and Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy.
Not to mention my sister just told me she’s got a boatload of mystery/suspense/crime books for me to paw through as well.
It’s going to be a busy summer.
In the spirit of that, I think I’ll go read.
