It's Monday, What Are You Reading


I keep saying I'm going to get back to regular book blogging and keeping up with the book blogging community, and I keep failing.  I enjoy joining Kathryn and the gang but life gets in the way.

I recently have set up my Overdrive account with my public library.  If you have a Kindle or other tablet, this is a great way to get e-books delivered.  As with hard copies, there may be a waiting list for the latest and greatest but at least with my library, I've been able to find plenty to keep me busy, and being able to check them out and return them from the comfort of my home makes it easy to try new authors, genres etc.  If I like them, I continue reading; if not, back they go.  

Here are some of my recent Overdrive reads:

Montana Bride: A Bitter Creek Novel by [Johnston, Joan]

Wyoming Bride: A Bitter Creek Novel by [Johnston, Joan]

These were about what you'd expect looking at the covers. They weren't very realistic but were fun.

Family Tree: A Novel by [Wiggs, Susan]

I loved this one, and may write a review in the future.  In short its about a women who finds a new life after a coma takes her old life from her. 

It was a rainy lazy Sunday today and I went to Mass last night so I spent the day writing book reviews and other blog posts so if I never blog again, you'll see a few more posts here.  Two that have already been published are:

Keep You Safe (click for review) caught my eye because it deals with vaccines.  I have an autistic son and one (discredited) theory about autism is that it is caused by vaccines.  

What should you do if a spouse you love comes out as transgendered?  That's the struggle of one of the characters in The Art of Keeping Secrets. 

As a New Orleans area resident I just want to remind everyone to keep the people of Houston in your thoughts and prayers.  Pray that rain lets up and they can dry out and be prepared to dig in your pockets to send money for aid once the storm leaves.  


  1. I know Houston has been really knocked around badly, shocking stuff really, and it will take so long to recover. I loved The Family Tree, just got Keep You Safe from NetGalley because I saw a review for it and I really enjoyed The Art of Keeping Secrets. Happy reading!

  2. I love the cover of Keep You Safe. I've been book blogging for 9 years and it's normal to have ups and downs. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. Welcome back! I loved Family Tree, and I've been wanting to read Keep You Safe.

    I must check into Overdrive...I've heard of it, but had no idea what was involved. Thanks!

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Texas has been in my thoughts and prayers. I keep hoping my Texas acquaintances are okay. I love reading on my Kindle and have over a thousand books on it. I'm never at a loss for what to read next. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. All in Harvey's path are in my prayers (and we donated). I enjoyed Family Tree.
    As for blogging, I go back and forth about continuing but have kept it up for over nine years. I will never run out of books to read if I live to be 90. Hope my eyes stay healthy :) Have a lovely Fall.

  6. I use Overdrive for audiobooks from my library. Come see what I'm reading.

  7. I love Overdrive and it is a great resource. I'll have to add Family Tree to my TBR list.
