Simply Marvelous Monday (18)

Shelia at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books gets all the credit for this one...

On Simply Marvelous Mondays, at Debbie's Book Bag, we want to know...
What are you reading?


The Highest Stakes by Emery Lee (For review from Sourcebooks)
No Greater Love (Extreme Devotion series - Book 1) by Kathi Macias (For review from Pump Up Your Book Promotions)

I finished my two books, which is my goal for each week, but it certainly wasn't what I wanted. Sometimes life intervenes and thats basically what happened to me this week. I was really busy with real world stuff and couldn't get into my reading world as I wanted to. Needless to say I hope this week will be better.


Outlander (Outlander series - Book 1) by Diana Gabaldon (E-book from the Library)
Celebration by Fern Michaels (Audio book from the Library)
Too Close To Home (Women of Justice series - Book 1) by Lynette Eason (For review from Revell)
Forget Me Not (Crossroads Crisis Center series - Book 1) by Vicki Hinze (For review from Waterbrook Multnomah)
The Founding (Moreland Dynasty series - Book 1) by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles (For review from Sourcebooks)
In Harms Way (Heroes of Quantico series - Book 3) by Irene Hannon (For review from Revell)
The Bridegrooms by Allison K. Pittman (For review from Waterbrook Multnomah)

Most likely will not finish all these, but one can hope LOL... I have a good start on at least three of them. Outlander and Celebration will again be on the back burner, but I'm close to finishing both of them. I have several things for review on the list and specific dates for some of them, so bare with me, I'll get them all in on time, I'm sure. I am usually reading at least one print book, one e-book and listening to one audio book each week. That doesn't mean I'll finish them all, but my goal is at least two books a week.

UP NEXT: Uncertain Magic by Lisa Kinsale (For review from Sourcebooks)

I hesitated to choose an Up Next selection this week because I know I won't finish everything on my list, but still when all those are done, Uncertain Magic is next.

I've not heard of the "Women of Justice" series, but it sounds interesting. Many years ago I saw, at our library, an anthology of short pieces of women who impacted history. It was in the children's department, and I was always mad at myself that I didn't note the title and buy it for myself. It was quite enjoyable. I'm finishing up a couple things, including a really enjoyable non-fiction read, Dear Bob, Dear Betty by Elizabeth Catherine Wright -- she's the granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright and she has written a book about the love letters and correspondence between her parents. Very interesting to see the letters that play out during the Great Depression, and all the crises going on then. Plus, let's face it, the dad is the son of FL Wright -- so in one part, he's asking her to go with him to a big annual Halloween party at Taliesin. There are plenty of family photos and even some of the original letters and enclosures.

Liz, that sounds like a great book! I'll have to check it out. I read non-fiction here and there. Sometimes a lot more interesting than fiction LOL...

No Greater Love will have to be added to my book reading list. These are great recommendations, thanks! I just read a personal memoir about a man who grew up as a gifted child, but wasn't recognized for this. It made me think about my own gifts and talents and how they can be used. You should check it out!

Have not heard of the Too close to Home book so am awaiting your review on that. Forget me Not has got quite a few reviews around and I would like to see your take on that.

You've got quite a pile of reading, listening to get through this week.
