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.

I am feeling under the weather due to the constantly changing weather going on this past week and slowly developing a migraine. I am so glad I have nothing planned for this weekend.  Here is my bank holiday weekend TBR: Enchanted, Inc by Shanna Swendson - it's a first book in a series I have been meaning to check out. I put a hold on it in OverDrive and it became available much sooner than I expected. With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin - I haven't gotten to open this one yet, but I will even if I only get a chapter read. I am slowly making progress in Polio by David Oshinsky by reading on chapter at a time; I should have it done by the end of the week. My ILL came in, again much earlier than I expected (wanted), so I am rounding out my reading for next week with The Obsession by Nora Roberts. I may have to put some April TBR books back on the big TBR pile since so many library books are coming at me.


To those who celebrate Easter, I hope you have a happy and joyous holiday. To those who celebrate Passover, I hope you have fulfilling holiday.

Friday Reads
The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream - Barack Obama
With Every Letter - Sarah Sundin
Polio: An American Story - David Oshinsky

Working my way through the physical TBR this month...so far so good. Except I haven't touch Polio in over a week. I want to read at least 50 pages of that book this weekend so I can have some progress made. Then I might try to get one chapter every other day done until the book is finished. I started The Audacity of Hope a couple of days ago and that will be my focus this weekend and beginning of next week. Finally, I hope to get started on With Every Letter by the middle of next week if not sooner.


3 weeks out from my first RT Con! They just announced this week that 2018's convention will be in Reno, NV.

Polio: An American Story - David Oshinsky

Just going to try to get through Polio: An American History by David Oshinsky. It's entertaining, but a little history dense. If I need a break from reading about polio, I will probably pick something off my April reads.


This is the first full day of spring break for my son, so I treated him and his sister to The Smurfs: The Lost Village movie - I loved it! It is better than the hybrid human/CGI Smurf movies made a few years ago. The new movie is completely animated and tells a better story - daughter made it clear at lunch that she is going as Smurfette for Halloween this year. The storyline is both accurate in terms of Smurf history and canon, yet opens up a new chapter for the Smurfs. Six thumbs up!


My yearly struggle to teach myself how to crochet starts this weekend. Much YouTube watching will be had.


Hope you all have a good weekend!
