Friday Reads

mobile phone and books Something new for Fridays..because I have to write a guest blog post for Sunday and I don’t have a clue what to talk about, so I thought we’d talk about books today. Safe topic, right? 😆

I just finished reading Deborah Smith’s A PLACE TO CALL HOME. This 1997 novel has been described as Southern Fiction and Women’s Fiction. I discovered it via Smart Bitches HaBO (Help a Bitch Out)–a feature whereby readers are searching for a book with only a vague description. Commenters will chime in with the title. Over the weekend, the reader was looking for this book. While not strictly a romance, it is deeply romantic. While a sweeping family saga, it is an intimate story about a boy and a girl who grow up to be a man and a woman. It was lyrical and sad and small-town true. Here’s the AMAZON LINK. I borrowed it from the library but I admit to debating whether to find a used copy to add to my personal library.

I’m starting to read Leslie A. Kelly’s DON’T EVER STOP. This is the second book in her futuristic suspense Veronica Sloan series. This is a dark, near-future world after a devastating terrorist attack on Washington DC. Veronica is a cop on the edge–emotionally and technologically. She lost her family in the attacks and has been implanted with some serious techno coolness. There’s a hot FBI agent for the romance though it’s a secondary consideration. If you like JD Robb’s In Death/Eve Dallas series, you should give this one a try. The first book is DON’T LOOK AWAY.

So what are you reading? Or on your wish list? Have a great weekend. I’ll post a quick link for the blog on Sunday. 😀

  1. Ooo, those books sound interesting. Thanks!

    I’m reading Witch World by Andre Norton for the first time. Years ago I snagged a box full of her books and I figured it was probably time I start reading some of them. Witch World was probably the best place to start.. So far so good. =o)

    On my wish list is Parasite by Mira Grant – which is due out next week. I loved her Newsflesh series and this new book promises to give me more gritty, near-horror, thought-provoking fun. I’m also looking forward to a certain Sade Marquis book coming out. I’m going to have to pry my pocketbook loose and buy some books soon. Yay!

      I LOVE the Witch World. I have almost every one of the books in original paperback. At some point, I had to stop collecting them but that series was my introduction to paranormal books–with a touch of SciFi. I’ve long been a Norton fan. She was my go-to SciFi author as a kid.

      We’re a week away from SEASON OF THE WITCH full release! 🙂

    I have Leslie’s new one on my kindle and need to get to it. I’m reading One & Only by Viv Daniels right now. It’s a NA and I’m completely hooked.

    • Silver James says:

      Haven’t heard about ONE & ONLY, Liza. I’ll have to look it up. 🙂 I’m not really into YA or NA, but every once in awhile, a title or blurb will catch my attention and I put it on the list. 😀

Got something to say?
