Books I hope to read this winter

Books I hope to read this winter

November 7, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 4

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. This week we’re talking about the books we want to read this Winter. All but one of these books are books on my TBR list that are already published. Most of them I already own. A few I will borrow from the library. Updated to add: Winter means December through February to me. Spring is March through May, Summer–June through August–etc. I say this because I didn’t include the books from March (by Briggs and Bishop) which I would include in a list of books I want to… Read more »

November 2017 books on my list

November 3, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 4

I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of asthe months go by. I don’t buy all these books–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. November 1 A Long Way Down by Ken… Read more »

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Turning the Tide by Edith Maxwell

Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Turning the Tide by Edith Maxwell

October 18, 2017 2017, Can't Wait Wednesday 2

I used to take part in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I’ve decided to begin participating again, but with Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings since the Breaking the Spine blog is no longer active. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that aren’t released yet. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog…. Read more »

Books I want to read during Fall 2017

Books I want to read during Fall 2017

September 5, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 17

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. I’ve decided to try some new memes this fall. I plan to write posts for this discussion meme when I have time and something to say! My books are a mix of books being published this fall and books from my TBR piles–sometimes because a new book in the series is coming out this fall! One trend I notice: lots of good books are coming in October! Girl Waits with Gun  by Amy Stewart Kopp Sisters #1 Historical Mystery I have had the first book… Read more »

Putting the mystery into historical

Putting the mystery into historical

September 2, 2017 2017, Audiobooks, B+, book rating, reviews 8

Delivering the Truth by Edith Maxwell Quaker Midwife Mystery #1 Setting: 1888, Massachusetts mill town Narrator: Michael Page Rose Carroll is the Quaker midwife and I really enjoyed reading about her. The life of a midwife in that era is fascinating as is reading about Quaker life in this town. I think she is something of an anomaly since she’s a midwife and unmarried at 26, but she sticks to her beliefs without being obnoxious. Rose boards with her brother-in-law and family. Her sister died not too long before the book starts and Rose helps with cooking and cleaning when she can as do the oldest children. She also wants… Read more »

This meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. The idea is to answer the three questions below. For more information check out the Taking on a World of Words blog. What are you reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Currently reading I had a nine-hour car ride to and from northern Wisconsin this last weekend. That gave me  time to read–though I still had to talk some to my husband and daughter who were with me. I can’t believe they expected that of me…lol. ………………. Science fiction, space opera and a mystery! Oh, yes! I’m close to finishing… Read more »
