It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Can you believe it, May has spun past us. The year needs to be slowed down.
Last week I went to my quilting class, did an applique teddy bear that between class and home lost. Gutted! Have searched the shop and my gear, just hope someone took it home by accident.
It has done nothing but rain here and heaps of thunderstorms, I slept totally through one which pleases me enormously!
What I read last week:
I finished listening to The Opposite of Everyone during the week. I am not reviewing it here on the blog but this is what I had to say on Goodreads.
"Audiobook version was spectacular. I loved it. I am always a little chary of an author reading his or her own book. Well Joshilyn Jackson does a superb job. As you can imagine an author is going to have all the pacing and nuances for the book they have laboured over for so long, and JJ sure does. If she wanted full time work as a narrator I am sure the work would be there for her.
The plot itself is engaging. Paula is a big time lawyer, and life is about to rise up and hit her in all kinds of ways. The story weaves its way between her present and her past. The past sheds light on the present and intersects in ways neither Paula nor I saw coming. It's the story of a mother / daughter relationship and the love that bonds whatever goes on in life. Even when things are bad and your daughter is in the foster care system.
I have to say I wept - with joy - at the ending."
Would give this book more than 5 stars!"
My review for One True Loves. Christmas Ever After I am not reviewing here, it was a recent new buy for me, and I just so wanted to read this third one in her Puffin Island series. It has glitter on the cover, the story was so Christmasy and I think Sarah Morgan is at the top of the romance pile of authors. Just saying! I gave it 5 stars.
Review will be up next month. Have mixed feelings about this one.
