Hello and happy March!
I’m having a very exciting time planning a sabbatical with my husband. We leave on March 23rd and will be away for 9 weeks! We’re fitting a lot in including a weekend in Vancouver, an Easter wedding in UK, a romantic weekend in Paris, a family get together in Barcelona, a 10 day hike in northern Spain (covering 200kms), a recuperative week in Portugal (we’re going to need it!! LOL), a gourmet week in Italy and a tour of Russia.
Packing everything to cover all these things will be interesting, to say the least, and there will be no room for books so I’m taking my trusty kindle. I’m looking for any must-reads you’ve found this year?
I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours… 🙂
These are my most recent reads…
I have never read any Jayne Ann Krentz before, but thoroughly enjoyed reading Promise Not To Tell which is a suspense novel about a woman who has narrowly escaped a cult and the people she spent time with there…there was enough suspense to keep me interested and enough romance to make me sigh.
On Second Thought is another wonderful Kristan Higgins read about families, sisters and love (falling in, falling out, searching for, and then unexpectedly finding it). I adore Higgins’ books and you’re always guaranteed a few laughs and few tears and very satisfactory ending.
Still Me is book three in the life of Louisa Clark (the first one is Me Before You then there’s After You), an ordinary woman on an extraordinary journey to find love and herself. Moyes always writes such heartfelt prose and makes me weep!
Edge of Truth is the second book by Brynn Kelly about a group of ex-French foreign legion soldiers. The first book, Deception Island, won the RWNZ KORU Award last year and is a hot suspense novel that had me gripped on the first page. I’m just diving into this, but if it’s as good as the first one I’ll be thrilled.
The Camino. Unless you’re a fan of Shirley MacLaine (yes, the actress) or hiking in Spain this one won’t be for you. It’s a whacky and weird exploration of Shirley’s ideas and ‘past lives’ and not so much about the walk… this was inadvertently on the photo so thought I’d better mention it!!
(And I have Fiona Lowe’s Birthright downloaded already and waiting! 🙂 )
So…what have you read that will hold my interest on those long plane and train journeys? I love suspense and crime and (obviously) romance and women’s fiction. Also…what about audio books? Do you like them? Would you recommend?
