TBR Thursday
The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert
The Fuller Memorandum - Charles Stross
Looking for Alaska - John Green
They Came to Baghdad - Agatha Christie
The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson
The Spy Who Came In from the Cold - John le Carré

I will finish The Bourne Identity soon.  Then I'm off to visit The Hazel Wood and see what the Fae are doing there.

 

For The Summer of Spies, I'll be reading The Fuller Memorandum, They Came to Baghdad and The Spy Who Came In From the Cold

 

RL Book club selections are Looking for Alaska and The Name of the Star.

 

Life is interfering with my reading these days.  Do you ever go weeks without anyone wanting to do things on the weekends, and then suddenly everyone wants to do something on the SAME weekend.  Just like no one phones for days, then suddenly everybody calls.

 

Off to the mountains on Saturday (Peyto Lake) with my trusted friend Barbara.  With any luck, I will have photos to share on Monday.

 

Have a fun weekend, y'all.

TBR Thursday
Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind
Dora Doralina - Rachel de Queiroz
The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum
The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert
Looking for Alaska - John Green

My reading life is still being driven by due dates!  I have 5 days to read Wizard's First Rule, which is quite a thick book, so I'm feeling a bit of pressure.

 

Dora, Doralina is an interlibrary loan, which I'm unable to renew, so its next.

 

Then, finally, I get to read one of the Summer of Spies books, The Bourne Identity, which I'm hoping will be a quick read. 

 

I can hardly wait to read The Hazel Wood because, well, fairies.  I do love the Fae!

 

Finally, my real-life book club choice: Looking for Alaska.  (I may also have to read The Name of the Star quickly, as I think we're combining our July & August meetings.  One of our members is moving to Italy and we want to have a suitable send off for her.)

 

Combine this with changes in guests for the conference that I'm headed to in August  (Deanna Raybourn is no longer going to be a guest of honour, but Tasha Alexander and Andrew Grant will be) and I'm scrambling to fit in a book or 2 by them before mid-August.

 

My reading time in indeed spoken for and I'm longing to get spying!

 

Have a great weekend!

REVIEW BY DEBBIE - Alaska (Sawyer's Ferry #1) by Cate Ashwood
Alaska (Sawyer's Ferry #1) - Cate Ashwood

Nobody says no to a Prescott.

Not even one of their own.

 

Holden:
Living up to expectations had never been easy, but when I went after something, I got it. Success. Money. Victory. I was standing on the doorstep to having it all. There was only one thing standing in my way.

 

Gage:
Power and prosperity are overrated. Especially when they come at a price. When enough became enough, I walked away. Nothing had ever tempted me to look back, until one day the past showed up in my backyard.

 

I’m not so sure I can walk away a second time.

 

@cateashwood, @DebbieReadsBook, #Contemporary, #M_M, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

Snowy Mailbox
Lots of snow

I said I´d take a picture to show what it looks like outside now.  I took several but couldn't get a show where you could actually tell it was snowing.  It was very very gray outside so I had to edit the pictures a little to fix the gray light.  I wanted to take a picture to show the tracks where a moose walked across my yard but it already snowed so much you could barely see them.  

 

I haven´t been able to do much thinking or concentrating lately so I´ve stalled on my book.  Also, my fingers are working too hot.  The PsA (Psoriatic Arthritis) is flared up and my fingers don´t wnt to function.  I feel like the tin man from Oz.  I need to find my oil can asap.

Awesome Holiday Read
Christmas Nights (Diamond Creek, Alaska ... Christmas Nights (Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book 6) - J.H. Croix,Clarise Tan

Christmas Nights  is a fantastic holiday read by J.H. Croix.  Ms Croix has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are lovable.  Janie is a teacher with an adopted daughter.  Travis is a firefighter that kept her from drowning.  Their story is loaded with drama, suspense, action, humor and spice.  I enjoyed reading Christmas Nights and look forward to reading more from J.H. Croix in the future.  Christmas Nights is book 6 in the Diamond Creek, Alaska Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
