One in a Million - Jill Shalvis
Cafe Au Lait - Liane Spicer
Welcome to Last Chance - Cathleen Armstrong
The Spirit of '76: From Politics to Technology, the Year America Went Rock & Roll (Kindle Single) - David Browne

Today is the first full day of summer vacation for my kids. Don't know how much reading I will be getting done while they are home, but I hope to finish Wishing Lake and at least get started on One in a Million this weekend. Keeping on the contemporary romance track, I hope to get Café Au Lait and Welcome to Last Chance done next week. On the non-fiction side, I want to get The Spirit of '76 read.

 

I am hoping that Storm Hector brings relief from my allergies. Happy reading!

Drifting to You: Cape Fear Shipworks - Kianna Alexander
A Radiant Soul: A Sweet Way to His Heart Novella - Kianna Alexander
The Valcourt Heiress - Catherine Coulter

Tomorrow is the kick-off of COYER Big Summer Birthday Bash. To start, I am reading two books off my COYER reading list, Drifting to You and A Radiant Soul by Kianna Alexander. These were historical romance novellas from two different indie published anthologies that are now sold separately, at least in the Kindle store. 

 

I already have two books done for Ripped Bodice Summer Bingo this week: Winds of Salem for "time travel" square and When Summer Comes for "heroine is older than the hero" square. Right now I am working on a third, the one for the "Pre-Renaissance" square (The Valcourt Heiress by Catherine Coulter, set in medieval England).

 

I gave up on that WWI book because I couldn't get through the first chapter. I am taking the summer off from the reading list and will get back to it in September.

 

Started the grad school application process this week. Hopefully by September I will be back in school along with my kids.

The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark
Winds of Salem - Melissa de la Cruz
One in a Million - Jill Shalvis
Wishing Lake (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart
When Summer Comes - Brenda Novak

Spent the day after Memorial Day at the doctor's, as my son came down with Strep Throat (must be his yearly need for amoxicillian, lol). Counting down to summer vacation (son has 8.5 days left and daughter has 4 days) and the reading for our library's Summer Reading Program started today. I wish I could read faster, but my seasonal allergies are a doozy this year and I am either in a sneezing fit, sinus pain, or blacked out due to allergy medications. 

 

I ended up finishing the Ann Rule book yesterday; luckily, I picked up the last book in the Beauchamp Family series, so I am reading Winds of Salem first. I am also going to buckle down and read The Sleepwalkers, even if it is just 50 pages at a time every day. For next week, I plan on reading One in a Million (last book in the last trilogy that forms the Lucky Harbor series), When Summer Comes (third book in the Whiskey Creek series) and Wishing Lake (third book in the Finding Home series).

 

Happy June and the beginnings of summer (which means daylight from 4 am to 11 pm here in England) or winter depending on which side of the equator you live on.

Friday/Holiday Reads - May 24, 2018
I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer - Michelle McNamara,Patton Oswalt,Gillian Flynn
Harmony Cabins (Finding Home Series Book 2) - Regina Hart
The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark
He's So Fine - Jill Shalvis

I have a four day weekend, courtesy of a Family Day (military's way of adding days to holiday weekends so to give servicemembers time off) and Memorial Day. I plan on doing an extra shift at the library, then take the kids to our local pool tomorrow. Saturday through Monday I am just chilling out at home, reading, playing more Stardew Valley, and cross stitching. 

 

I am halfway through I'll Be Gone and I am loving it despite the non-linear storytelling, which is surprising that I can still follow what is going on. The crimes around the Sacramento area weirds me out a little, as we were stationed at Beale for five years and know the areas pretty well - in addition to my husband being a native of Sac. For a true crime book, it is fairly light on graphic descriptions of the crime scenes....or I have read too many In Death books to be affected by descriptions of said scenes.

 

To give myself a break from rape and murder, I am looking at putting more time into Harmony Cabins and get that completed by Monday and start He's So Fine. I am also trying to put in some time to The Sleepwalkers, but it is great at combatting my seasonal insomnia.

 

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend to my fellow Americans and happy Bank Holiday to my UK peeps.

To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 - Adam Hochschild
When Snow Falls - Brenda Novak

*bookish meme created by Moonlight Reader 

 

BoB 22 starts Monday and I will be reading from my list of 150 pages or less NOOK books to whittle down my personal TBR. For this weekend I want to finish up To End All Wars, which is making me a fan of Adam Hochschild, and then finish up When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak.
