Actually, it’s all about books and those awesome freebies from Kindle. I’ve finished two good ones this week!
I started Wild Goose Chase based solely on the colorful cover art, and totally forgot that it was a quilting cozy mystery. And honestly… I’m not sure it’s a true cozy. There was a lot more sex in this one than in most cozies, but I liked it anyway!
(No friends, I’m not taking up quilting. I don’t even have time to do much knitting these days.)
Luckily, the main character didn’t know squat about quilting either, so we learned together… or not. I do love quilts and enjoy looking at them, but I can’t sew, and most certainly don’t see me quilting. I don’t enjoy great big projects… but the subject does make for a fun mystery.
The next book my fingers grabbed was Summer of Firefly Memories, also offered at some point at a Kindle freebie. It’s still free through their Prime lending offer or only 99 cents for everyone else. I selected it just because it seemed like a good title for a book I started on July 4th (and finished July 5th).
It’s what I’d call a beach read. Four adult sisters, as different as four women can be, reunite at lakeside resort where they used to vacation with their parents. There’s fighting, personal growth, secrets shared and of course, some summer lovin’. There’s also a super-sweet labrador in there too. It was a pleasant, easy read, but there was nothing deep about it.
I haven’t opened another book yet. I have plenty waiting on my Nook and the iPad Kindle app… I have exhausted my paper or “real” books to be read pile though.
It’s supposed to be 104 here tomorrow, so I think more reading is ahead. What do you read when it’s too hot to even think?
