Friday Reads - June 23, 2017
The Bull Rider's Homecoming (Blue Thorn Ranch) - Allie Pleiter
Ellis Island - Kate Kerrigan
Hell on Wheels - Julie Ann Walker
A Lady for Lord Randall (Brides of Waterloo) - Sarah Mallory
Just Mercy - Bryan Stevenson

For the last week of June, I have a full load to read. All new, fresh reading to juice up my reading mojo.

 

Friday Free Read/COYER Summer 2017: The Bull Rider's Homecoming by Allie Pleiter. This is on my COYER reading list so I figured kill two birds with one book. I have read another book by this author that I enjoyed so I am hoping for another great read.

 

BL-opoly Read/Pop Sugar Challenge: Ellis Island (Ellis Island #1) by Kate Kerrigan. Irish immigrant to NYC during the 1920s satisfies the prompt "book written/about refugees or immigrants".

 

RB Bingo: Hell on Wheels (Black Knights, Inc #1) by Julie Ann Walker. Still trying to find a book that fits in the "Never read genre/subgenre" square. I bailed on the rock star series when it became clear the series was about all the other employees of the band and not about the band members. This book is a combination of motorcycle club and military romance, which are other niches I don't read. Thank goodness for OverDrive.

 

COYER Summer 2017: A Lady for Lord Randall (Brides of Waterloo #1) by Sarah Mallory. This is the first in a trilogy. I am kicking myself for reading that kidnapped romance when I could have just waited for COYER to start and used this book instead.

 

Random Pick: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson because it is due back to the library at the end of the week.

Friday Reads for June 9, 2017
Just Mercy - Bryan Stevenson
Poison Pills: The Untold Story of the Vioxx Drug Scandal - Tom Nesi
The Silent Governess - Julie Klassen

My son and I have been suffering from severe allergies the last week or so. I am hoping two library borrows, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson and Poison Pills: The Untold Story of the Vioxx Drug Scandal by Tom Nesi will help me power through the Benadryl fog I have been under. I have a BL-opoly roll for tomorrow to help round out my weekend reading; plus I am taking my time reading The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen, which I reserve for Sunday reading.

 

Have a happy reading weekend!

Friday Reads for June 2nd, 2017
Among the Wicked: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir - Alan Cumming
Silent Governess, The - Julie Klassen

I got a ticket to see Wonder Woman tonight and I can not express how damn excited I am to see it! WW is my all-time favorite comic character and I grew up watching the tv show (in reruns). To finally get her story on the big screen is serious wish fulfillment.

 

On the reading front, I have Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo to read for BL-opoly. I borrowed Not My Father's Son by Alan Cummings from OverDrive for the Pop Sugar challenge. Also for the PS challenge, I pulled The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen off my physical TBR pile to read for the "UBS find" prompt.

 

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Friday Reads - Summer Holiday Weekend Part I
After the Storm: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Her Last Breath - Linda Castillo
Among the Wicked: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Death by Tiara (A Jaine Austen Mystery) - Laura Levine
Egg Drop Dead - Laura Childs
Purl Up and Die (A Knitting Mystery) - Maggie Sefton
Nothing but Trouble - Susan May Warren
Diary of an Accidental Wallflower - Jennifer McQuiston

I feel like it has been a long time since I did a Friday Reads post. I hope all my fellow US'ians have a safe holiday weekend. I hope my British neighbors have a safe bank holiday weekend. We got caught in a heat wave (in the 80s come afternoon time) so I broke out the kiddie pool; forecast states we have one more beautiful summer day, then the rain and lower temps are coming by the end of the weekend. I am spending most of my weekend with books and a long walk in the Thetford Forest with the family before the rain comes.

 

Here is what I hope to read over the weekend/the final week in May.

 

1. After the Storm by Linda Castillo

2. Her Last Breath by Linda Castillo 

3. Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo

      I picked these three books from the library. They're from the Kate Burkholder series (Amish police procedurals). I've wanted to try this series for a while now. These books are from later in the series.

 

4. Death by Tiara by Laura Levine

5. Egg Drop Dead by Laura Childs

6. Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton

        Another bunch from the library, this time in really cute cozy mystery flavor. The first is from the Jaine Austen series, and the name of the series was enough for me to take it off the shelf. I tried one book from Laura Childs before (from that tea shop mystery series) and DNF'ed it, so I don't have much expectation for this one (from the Cackleberry Club series). The last one's titled just made me laugh.

 

7. Nothing But Trouble by Susan May Warren

           Borrowed this one from OverDrive because I kept getting recommended it (OD has the first three books in the series). I'm at the 62% mark and really liking it; PJ is not one of those perfect model of a Christian, but she is a Christian with good intentions and a good heart. The writing is different from a lot of Christian fiction without being profane. I am looking forward to book two and three.

 

8. Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuinston

          My BL-opoly pick which makes it a priority. New to me author, but I loved the interviews she did for the Smart Podcast, Trashy Books podcast - she talked about her work at the CDC in general and her work in Africa dealing with Ebola outbreak specifically....along with her weekend job writing historical romances.

Friday Reads
Far From Home (A Mangrove Island Novel Book 2) - Neve Cottrell
With Every Letter - Sarah Sundin
Nora Roberts: The Obsession (Hardcover); 2016 Edition - Nora Roberts

My weekend is going to be all about major list making for RT and reading. The weather here has turned really cold and I have been battling a cough and sore throat for over a week now. I want to finish reading With Every Letter - so much better than I had expected and I am hoping to continues to be so good. The feels, man, the feels. I have Far From Home to read for Booklikes-opoly. Finally The Obsession is a library book I want to get done before I leave for RT.
