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.

What I have been reading:
I read High Heels and Beetle Crushers by Jackie Skingley which is the memoir of her time in HM’s Army in the 1950s. It was rather interesting for me in particular since I had been in the US Navy and could compare some of my experiences with what she talked about happening to her. Some of the attitudes were similar even though my tour of duty was some thirty years later.
I also read The Last Real Cowboy by Caitlin Crewes. This is the last book in her Cold River Ranch series; you remember I read and reviewed Cold Heart, Warm Cowboy not too long ago. Well, this is Brady’s story, the youngest of the brothers on the ranch. And he tangles with his best friend’s little sister, who is no kid, even though the whole town thinks of her that way. Nope, at twenty-two, Amanda is a woman, and she’s had her eyes and her heart set on Brady all her life.
And I finally read Pamela Allegretto’s Bridge of Sighs and Dreams. This is a WWII survival story of an Italian family. It is totally amazing and I can’t believe I put off getting and reading this book! I’m so sorry Pamela! It is a beautiful story, but one that you need a box of tissue to get through because it is honestly told and it was an ugly war with death and betrayal and pain everywhere. But a story I can definitely recommend to anyone who likes reading war stories. Review to come very soon.
I just got and read immediately Wild, Wild Rake by Janna MacGregor. This was offered to me by her publisher and there is a chance to do some Q&A with the author if the questions are in before December 6th. That’s why I read it right away. I wanted to see how the book was and if I needed to do any other reading to do the Q&A segment. This is the last book in the series about the Cavensham Heiresses. The other two books in this series that I’ve read were the first one, The Bad Luck Bride, and the one before this one, Rogue Most Wanted. Both got 4-star ratings from me. This last one was very good as well. I’m trying to decide if I want to read the others in the series before the Q&A or not.
I read another book in the Psychic Seasons series by ReGina Welling. It was She Shall Have Music. This was Amethyst’s story. It was just as good as the other books in this fun series. That scary ex-husband of Julie’s is back again causing trouble and being totally evil. He’s not the only ex(?)-husband who turns up in this one. And this one has a wedding and a lot more of the paranormal! Yeah! I always love a wedding when there’s a group of women who are friends like this group.
What I am currently reading:
Right now I’m reading Wherever She Goes, book 4 of Psychic Seasons series by ReGina Welling and it’s Kat’s story. Kat’s the blind gal in the circle of friends and it looks like she’s being edged towards Gustavia’s brother, the tough cop! Wow, what a pairing!
I started listening to Demon Magic and a Martini by Annette Marie which is book #4 of The Guild Codex: Spellbound, narrated by Chris Dukehart. So far, so good! The pretty little bartender and her three hunky friends are already in over their heads with a demon on the loose. I can hardly wait for time to listen to more!
What I am looking forward to reading soon:
I just got Books 3 and 4 of the Hannah Starvling Mystery series by Kee Patterbee from Kindle Unlimited. That’s Wedding Deaths and Deadly Eyes. Sound pretty good just from the titles, don’t they? I love good titles!
I also have Goddesses of Japan and A Gathering for Claudette that I want to get to. I can’t decide which one to do first. They’re both from KU as well. For those who don’t use it and aren’t familiar with Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited, you can only have 10 books on loan at a time; if you want another one, you have to return one. I always seem to have 10. I need to read and get reviews written. I don’t return a book until I do the review.
