Summer Reading Ends…For Now

In my last post, I dedicated a week to catch up on my TBR pile. And maybe I’d add a second week. Both weeks were still not enough to shorten my reading stack. But I did get a lot of reading done.

Prior to my reading staycation, I had checked out Tracy Chevalier‘s The Last Runaway from my local library. I decided to finish it before I started anything on my TBR pile. It was worth the time finishing it and avoiding a late fee!

Among those books read from my TBR pile is Light from Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker. You can read my review here and here. This is a must-read in my opinion.

Next, I read Marian Beaman‘s memoir, Mennonite Daughter: The Story of a Plain Girl. A review will be posted soon on Goodreads, and here as soon as the memoir is published.

A Portland publisher offered ARCs of This Particular Happiness: A Childless Love Story, a memoir by Jackie Shannon Hollis. I was fortunate enough to receive one and read it during my summer reading R&R. Once given the OK I’ll be posting a review here, Goodreads, and Amazon.

I also started a new book from Karen Eisenbrey, Wizard Girl (Daughter of Magic Book 2). Karen is a talented writer and musician. I’ll review her book on Goodreads and Amazon when I’ve finished reading it.

Sprinkled throughout my two reading weeks were some other books. They included:

And there’s always room for a writing book or two, such as:

Happy reading!

Summer Reading

I have made a spur of the moment, joyous, and lovely decision!

Beginning tomorrow, I am taking at least next week to do nothing other than reading some books that are piling higher and higher by the day. In fact, I may get brave and take the next week to do the same.

Here’s what’s waiting for me:

If our weather stays as nice as it is, you may find me on the back porch swing with a glass of iced tea and a couple of kitties.

See you in a page-turning while!
