Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

 Lazy summer evenings has been making for some great reading time. Plus, I think I may actually be recovering from the spring and have found my focus again. I certainly hope so!


The Witches of New York by Ami McKay The Witchfinder's Sister by Beth Underdown The Confusion of Languages by Siobhan Fallon

Ami McKay’s novel is such a FUN read! Using the age-old method of condemning smart, powerful women as witches, Ms. McKay creates a historical novel that is oh-so appropriate for today’s climate.

Beth Underdown’s novel was an intriguing glimpse into a real-life historical figure. While much of the story is fictional, there are enough tantalizing bits of history included, as she notes in her Author’s Note, to learn a little something about the time period. Plus, as our government continues to hate women, any novel involving witch hunts feels particularly timely.

Siobhan Fallon’s newest novel brought back SO many memories of being an Army officer’s bride of five months moving to Germany and having to deal with a new culture and new life together. She gets the feeling of living abroad so right.


The Book of Whispers by Kimberley Starr

It did not even take me one chapter to get thoroughly annoyed with the characters, with the language, and with the writing. I rapidly closed this one and do not regret it for a minute.


Now I Rise by Kiersten White


End of Watch by Stephen King

Still picking this up in fits and starts. It continues to not bother me if I don’t listen to it for an extended period of time. I really hope the story starts becoming “unputdownable.”


I Found You by Lisa Jewell The White Road by Sarah Lotz

So, what are you reading?
