What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

I finished Gathering the Threads by Cindy Woodsmall. Excellent book and trilogy. Up next for me is You're Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher.

I'm reading "Duty to Defend" by Jill Elizabeth Nelson. It's really good so far! I'm only a few chapters in and very curious about what will happen!

I've read a few books over the last week, but the last one was "A Chance at Forever" by Melissa Jagears. It was okay, but I mostly read it because it was the third book in a trilogy. I enjoyed her earlier books more than this last series. Maybe it's just me.

I finished Harp on the Willow by B. J. Hoff, very good. I should have read her Emerald Balllad series first though, figured that out when it was too late to stop. Currently reading Travail and Triumph. It is the third book in The Russians by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. I am really enjoying this series.

I hate it when I realize that I was reading something in the wrong order! It's hard because it isn't always clearly marked in such a way that you know something else comes first.

I'm just starting "The Dishonorable Miss DeLancey" by Carolyn Miller. It's a Christian Regency romance. The first two were okay but not amazing. I'm more reading it to finish the series than anything. The others weren't bad, just not as good as I was hoping for.

I'm currently re-reading Crucial Conversations. It's a book about how to have difficult, emotional, high-stakes conversations with people in an effective way that leads to mutual understanding and doesn't destroy relationships. So good.

I just finished Travail and Triumph, excellent. I am really enjoying The Russians. Up next for me is Colorado Gold by Marian Wells. This is the next book in the Treasure Quest series which I am reading in chronological order.

I read "The Innkeeper's Daughter" by Michell Griep today, and it was great! What a great read! It takes place in 1808 England and references her previous book "Brentwood's Ward," which I also really enjoyed, thought it wouldn't be necessary to read that book to understand this one. Highly recommended!

I started "The Austen Escape" by Katherine Reay, and I'm very intrigued so far! I'm curious as to what is going on between the characters, and looking forward to finding out what happens next!

I'm reading Crisis Shot by Janice Cantore, first time reading this author. Pretty good. Not much romance or suspense which is disappointing. It's keeping me turning the pages though.

I'm reading "Out of the Frying Pan" by Michelle Griep and Kelly Klepfer. It's quite funny so far! There's a murder at a retirement community with some hilarious old ladies. Good times!

I just barely started "The Mayflower Bride" by Kimberley Woodhouse. There's an interesting historical note at the beginning, which I always really appreciate!

That one looks good! I want to read it when I have time.

I'm just starting "The Pirate Bride" by Kathleen Y'Barbo. It looks like fun!

I'm reading "More Than Meets The Eye" by Karen Witemeyer. I always enjoy her books, and the start of this one makes me think it will be no exception!

I have "More Than Meets The Eye" in my TBR pile, let me know what you think Catspaw.

I am over halfway through A Name Unknown by Rosanna M. White, it is the first book in her Shadows over England trilogy. Excellent so far. I really enjoy Ms. White's books.
