This Week’s Reads and Happenings: Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry – Hatchet & The River by Gary Paulsen #Reading #AmReading #Books

This has been a crazy week so far! On Monday came the freeze, which is going to last most of this week. I had to get all of our plants out of the greenhouse and into the garage which was a big project. As much as I love winter, when it comes in late like this and ruins spring flowers, it’s a total drag. Our lilacs were going to bloom, but I doubt they will now, and that’s something I look forward to every year. At least we were able to enjoy the trees in bloom for a few days. Walking outside yesterday to the woods, now turned white, after everything was so lush, green, and beautiful was just bizarre.

This Week’s Books… Namesake by Adrienne Young – When the Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain – A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw #Reading #Books #AmReading

Over the weekend I finished Fable by Adrienne Young. The book was amazing. You can see my review by clicking here. This week I have three books lined up including:

Namesake by Adrienne Young

After finishing Fable, which ended on a huge cliffhanger, I had to move right on to Namesake. I’m about a third of the way in, and it’s good so far but has a different feel. I’m not as enthralled as I was with Fable. I’m still confident it’s going to turn out well because there are some interesting twists about her mother coming to light now.

Blurb:

Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.

With the Marigold ship free of her father, Fable and the rest of the crew were set to start over. That freedom is short-lived when Fable becomes a pawn in a notorious thug’s scheme. In order to get to her intended destination, she must help him to secure a partnership with Holland, a powerful gem trader who is more than she seems.

This Week’s Books! #Books #Reads #Reading

Hello, fellow readers! How’s your week going? I thought I’d do a quick post to talk about the books I’m reading this week. Luckily, I was approved for one highly anticipated read from NetGalley, and there’s a stack of other physical books to read as well—some that I’m reading with my kids. Last week I sort of strayed from my plan and ended up reading a few recommendations. One of them was deeply disturbing (Tampa by Alissa Nutting), so I’ll be posting that review later this week, but I won’t be talking about that book today. Here’s what we have going on this week:

A Summer to Remember by Erika Mongomery

I just finished this a few days ago. This was a giveaway win, and it turned out to be a pretty good story. It transported me to summer! This would make a great beach read. My review will be posted later this week…

Blurb:

For thirty-year-old Frankie Simon, selling movie memorabilia in the shop she opened with her late mother on Hollywood Boulevard is more than just her livelihood–it’s an enduring connection to the only family she has ever known. But when a mysterious package arrives containing a photograph of her mother and famous movie stars Glory Cartwright and her husband at a coastal film festival the year before Frankie’s birth, her life begins to unravel in ways unimaginable.
