Brought to you by the verb “to read”
In the past, present, and future tense.
As in have been reading, are currently reading,
And might read next…or are considering reading next…
This is my variation on the meme done by others,
And very well, I might add.

I have been reading…
I was at B&N the other day and was able to see a hard copy of Artful Alphabets. WOW! What a difference from the ebook version! The ebook version just doesn’t have the impact of the hard copy. The hard copy is sooooo fabulous! The colors jump right off the page at you and the alphabets make you want to get out your pens and markers and start designing right then and there! I spent about an hour with it, even though I had already read it once in ebook. So, I’ve listed it as read twice. Joanne Sharpe, you rock, girl!
Sketch Like a Boss by Shirish Deshpande is another interesting sketching book. He works strictly in pen, which I really liked. His style is more formal than the other sketching styles I’ve been looking at lately, which is beyond me right now, but something to work towards. His ideas are good, though.
Dax, Bad Boys of Willow Valley Book #1 by Shannyn Leah is a hot one. Two people who’ve been hurt in the past try to keep their distance in spite of their sizzle. They use two people to keep the space between them until one dies and the other one needs them both. Good characters.
Permed to Death, Bad Hair Day Mystery #1 by Nancy J. Cohen is a cozy that’s been revised and updated since its original publishing. Marla gives her cranky client a perm and a cup of coffee, then she goes back to the sink to rinse off the tools. When she returns to the client, she’s dead. Heck of a way to start your day! Amusing!
Rune Witch Mysteries, Books 1-4, by Victoria DeLuis. The overarching story is Summer Daniels’ family mystery, but along the way, she and her chosen mate, Thomas Heart, solve a few other mysteries. Summer is a rune witch and Thomas is a human, but someone wants Summer dead. I thoroughly enjoyed this complex but uncomplicated tale.
Women Artists A to Z by Melanie LaBarge, illustrated by Caroline Corrigan is a delightful art history book that is probably considered a children’s art book; but will delight art readers of all ages with its lovely illustrations and informative text about women artists and their techniques. I got it, read it, and reviewed it all in the same day, but the review won’t be posted until February when the book is released.
What I am currently reading…
The Emerald Tablet, One Great Year #2 by Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio. I am at 90% on this one, so I should be able to finish this one tonight if I get a few minutes to read and get started on an overdue review for the next day (Tuesday). I’m not sure I’m going to like the way it ends, though.
I’m also still reading Bloodlust and Bonnets by Elizabeth McGovern, which is a graphic novel. But I really can’t figure it out. The pictures don’t seem to make sense with the text or vis versa. I need to finish it and review it whether I get it or not.
And I’m still at 58% on Nottingham…
What’s new in my collection?
Well, Women Artists A to Z is, but I’ve already told you about it.
A book of poetry by Danielle Vogel called The Way a Line Hallucinates is due out next June. There is no cover for it yet. Another poetry book about death and grief called Moon Jar by Didi Jackson is due out next April. I downloaded the two of them this morning.
So, what have you been reading lately that you enjoyed? Let me know in the comments.
