A Cowboy’s Lady

By Debbie Macomber

My thoughts:

Taylor has just moved from Seattle to Montana after taking a teaching position at an elementary school. She’s feeling a little unsure about the relocation, but everyone seems to be happy with her being there; for instance, everyone around town is talking about her (specifically how beautiful she is). Once Russ, a local rancher hears about this, he just has to meet her. When the two take one look at each other it’s love at first sight, but the problem is that they butt heads on everything under the sun.

I happened to be online looking up cowboy romances after seeing an intriguing review for a different book, and this book popped up. Of course the rating on this book is 4/5 stars, and she’s a favorite author, so I was sold. Cowboys, Montana, romance–it’s exactly the sort of read I was looking for. Usually Debbie Macomber books are favorites, but this one wasn’t what I expected.

September 2019 Review #Books #BookReviews #Music #Birthday #News #Art #September

It’s October! Fall is finally here and it’s starting to feel like it with cooler temperatures on the horizon. I thought it would be fun to do a monthly review for September, which I’ve never done before. Here goes!

September was my birthday month. Getting excited about my birthday is a thing of the past, but I actually felt pretty good about it this year. My b-day was spent at home feeling a little sick due to a wonky thyroid again, but I was with my husband and children, and we had a fun time, so it made up for it. My gifts were two HIGHLY anticipated books released in September. Here they are:

Dark Black and Blue: The Soundgarden Story

My husband just happened to hear about this one on satellite radio. This book is over 400 pages and chock-full of so much information. It’s going to take me some time to read it, but I’m so freaking excited about it just after reading the introduction.

Postscript (P.S. I Love You, #2)

I bought this one for myself from Book Depository the moment it was released in the UK. The plan was to read it for Netgalley, but I was too late and it was already archived. It’s not released in the US yet, and waiting until 2020 was just out of the question. The first book is a favorite, and I’m so excited to read about Holly again.

Alice in Worcestershire: Brummie girls do cry by Eskay Teel

20190927_101524.jpg

Alice in Worcestershire is a memoir about a young girl from the UK who’s a troubled teen or “beyond parental control” as her mother and the authorities categorize her. It’s the 1970s, and around the age of twelve she’s taken from home and sent to a home for troubled teens–not against her will either. Even with six other siblings, she couldn’t wait to get away from her mother because of the extreme hate they have for one another. After being sent away she spends time on the streets among dangerous situations and gets herself into a predicament no thirteen-year-old should ever have to experience.

We started to walk down the steps as two of the men began approaching us and talking about another party. We were both answering, trying to sound cool and light-hearted, saying that no, we were going home. We carried on moving, but by the time we got to the bottom of the steps without running and acting like fools — they each had a hand on our elbows guiding us away across the road.

What am I reading this week? #Reading #AmReading #BookLovers

Because I’m not reviewing very much right now, I thought I’d do another post highlighting what I’m reading this week.

Last week I finished Depravity by M.J. Haag and shared my review on Friday. I enjoyed the book (despite some niggles) and went right on to book two in the series titled Deceit. I DNFed the second book about half way through and won’t be finishing the trilogy. It became too weird for me. I normally don’t DNF books, but I just couldn’t handle this one. I liked that the characters were developing more and the beast was more understood, but the details were too much for me. I’m not going to tear the book apart though, and I didn’t rate it because I didn’t totally finish it.

I’ve decided to finally read Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which is now a movie releasing on Friday. I bought the book from Barnes and Noble and will be starting it today.
