Southern Belle Reads Friday: In Search of the Next Great Read

This week I started two new books.  I’m trying to see which one drew me the most and that would be the book I was going to finish first.  They are two totally different books.  One’s a mystery and one’s a Christian Fiction Romance.  I am all over the board in the types of books I read.  I am looking for a book that is going to draw me in and make me want to not put the book down again.  I am still in my reading funk!  Hopefully real soon I will find “the book”!  The two books I started reading this week are “Death By Bridle” by Abigail Keam and “Once Upon A Prince” by Rachel Hauck.  Hopefully one of these is “the one” I’m looking for or if not hopefully I will find it real soon.

Southern Belle Reads Friday: What I’m Reading Now

Well I finally finished “Anything He Wants” by Sara Fawkes.  It was a good book but I was a little disappointed how it ended.  I know another part has been released now.  I have now started reading “Hatteras Girl” by Alice J Wisler.  I think I might really like this book because it has one of my favorite things in it, The Outer Banks.  I would move to the Outer Banks if I could, there is no place like it.  Next week I will provide you with an update on where I stand on my 55 books in 2013 stands since it is the end of the first quarter.  Untill next week keep on reading!
