What are you reading today?

The blogger I invited for the first of the month didn’t show up, so it seemed like a good time to talk about what we’re reading. It must be said here that book reviews I write are almost as awful as my synopses, so I’m going to spare you that. This is just what I’ve read lately.

Pamela Morsi’s MR. RIGHT GOES WRONG hit my Kindle on the day it came out and I spent the day before yesterday—nearly in its entirety—reading about Mazy, Eli, and Tru and loving all of them. I’ve said a lot more times than anyone’s interested in hearing that I miss Ms. Morsi’s historicals and want her to write them again. This doesn’t even slow down how much I enjoy her contempories.

A couple of weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that Mary Balogh had sneaked the third of her Survivor’s Club series, THE ESCAPE, right past me. There went another productive day. And what a fun way to spend it.

I’ve read some others that I’ve enjoyed—Kristina Knight’s LIGHT MY FIRE and Kristan Higgins’ WAITING ON YOU. I’ve reread favorites—Nan Reinhardt’s ONCE MORE FROM THE TOP and James Herriot’s ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL.

My most unforgettable characters

That used to be the first column I read in Reader’s Digest, and I was almost invariably impressed with the person who had impacted the writer’s life so deeply. So who’s my most unforgettable character? Well… I’ve read romantic fiction since before … Continue reading
