24 Festive Tasks - Armistice Day
A Moveable Feast - Ernest Hemingway
The MacGregor Brides - Nora Roberts
The MacGregor Grooms - Nora Roberts
River's End - Nora Roberts
Public Secrets - Nora Roberts
Rebellion - Nora Roberts

Diwali

 

Book: I had this one already planned and in my hands as I needed to get it through my base library's ILL system. I will be reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. Pray for me....

 

Task #3

I can say that I am definitely a veteran of the works by Nora Roberts/JD Robb. She was my gateway to romance and adult books. I first read NR's The MacGregor Brides when I borrowed it from the public library at age 12. I had already exhausted my library's Sweet Valley High and Babysitters' Club books and nothing really grabbed me. So the librarian, who knew me well as I was at the library every week, decided to hand me this book and the follow up, The MacGregor Grooms. I inhaled these books, reading them a few times all the way through by the time the due date arrived. 

 

From there, I read (out of order) the rest of The MacGregor series (my favorite being Rebellion), then moved on to whatever was available at the library or the used book store (mostly her category romance). During my first deployment, I read River's End and Public Secrets, starting me on her romantic suspense. During my second deployment, I read the first of 47 In Death books. And here I am, 27 years later and still borrowing NR/JD Robb from the library, with a few books on my physical shelf.

A River of Silence by Susan Clayton-Goldner
A River of Silence - Susan Clayton-Goldn... A River of Silence - Susan Clayton-Goldner

This is book three in the Winston Radhauser mysteries and I fell in love with Wind in the first book Redemption Lake and could not wait to read this one. Being book three this however, is totally a stand alone and you are able to read without having read the previous books. (I haven’t read #2 yet)

 

A River of Silence sees the Detective get called in to investigate the death of a child. this truly must be any law enforcement worst nightmare when it involves a child and even more so when you are responsible to find out all the facts and determine who or what caused the death.

 

Radhauser is one of those detectives you can’t help but love, from his cowboy hat right down to being a straight up good cop, he ensures that no stone goes unturned to get to the bottom of the truth even if means putting his job on the line. The suspect Caleb Bryce is racked with guilt over Skylar’s death that Radhause believes he is innocent, but pressure from he Chief see him having to arrest him for murder, but he does everything in his power to try and help prove that Bryce is as innocent as he believes him to be.

 

This is a tale that will really pull on your emotions seeing how it involves a child, and as the evidence is presented and the list of suspects grow you will be shocked when you learn the truth.

 

A 5 star mystery read for sure from Clayton-Goldner and I can’t wait to read more of Detective Radhauser.

Into This River I Drown by TJ Klune 99 cent!
Into This River I Drown - T.J. Klune


Five years ago, Benji Green lost his beloved father, Big Eddie, when his truck crashed into a river. Everyone called it an accident, but Benji knows it was more. Even years later, he's buried in his grief, throwing himself into managing Big Eddie's convenience store in the small-town of Roseland, Oregon. Surrounded by his mother and three aunts, he lives day to day, struggling to keep his head above water.

But Roseland is no ordinary place.

With ever more frequent dreams of his father's death and waking visions of feathers on the river's surface, Benji finds his definition of reality bending. He thinks himself haunted; by ghosts or memories, he can no longer tell. Not until a man falls from the sky, leaving the burning imprint of wings on the ground, does Benji begin to understand that the world is more mysterious than he ever imagined--and more dangerous. As uncontrollable forces descend on Roseland, they reveal long-hidden truths about friends, family, and the stranger Calliel--a man Benji can no longer live without.

River Marked by Patricia Briggs
River Marked - Patricia Briggs

I just love Mercy Thompson series. 
I've waited for a long time for Adam and Mercy to have some quality time together. And it was absolutely amazing - Adam is such a sweetheart - and at the same time scary as hell. There have been very intense moments in this series but vampires, fae, and werewolves have never frightened me as this creature in the river did. I was so scared during Mercy's dream and when she discovered herself by the river at night, I was actually hyperventilating. 

I also realized that I have a strange habit while reading Mercy Thompson series. I read the first half of the book very quickly and then I start stalling because I don't want the story to end.

Affliction by River Savage
Affliction - River Savage

This was so much better than the first book. Before I knew it, I had read over 70 % of the story and couldn't stop. 
The storyline was heartbreaking but beautiful, the exciting parts kept me at the edge of my seat, and there was more about the family and club members in this story.

Sy was an amazing hero. At first he seemed such an asshole but reading about his past and how he helped Holly, I fell in love. Holly was so spunky at the beginning of the series, so it was difficult to see her struggle, but on the other hand I couldn't put the book down because I needed to know what would happen next. Holly and Sy were amazing together. They took time to get to know each other and their main concern wasn't ripping each others clothes off. They did that too, of course, but hot sex was just part of the story, not the story itself. 
I'm not sure I can explain it well enough. Let's just say, that I read Nix and Kadence's story a few days ago and I've already forgotten big part of it. But I remember every scene about Holly and Sy. Now after reading Holly and Sy's story, I'm sure I won't forget it. Their story made me laugh, sigh, blush, and cry. I enjoyed it so much. Can't wait for Jesse's story.
