Ever since my Memorial Day Reading Marathon I’ve had a reading slow night. I’m reading a book and I like it but I’m just not into it. I’m hoping this weekend I can find my reading groove again. Hopefully I can finish the book I’m currently reading because I have a book in mind to read this weekend.
Last night/this morning I did something I haven’t done in a really long time. Stay up half the night reading. I used to do it a lot but anymore I can hardly stay awake past ten o’clock. But there is something about these Morgan’s Run books that just draw me in and make it hard for me to put them down. That was the most recent in the series so hopefully tonight I will sleep like a baby.
To me there is nothing better than a good ole road trip. Pack up the car and head out on a grand adventure. Yes the highway in the sky will get you there faster, but there is so much you don’t get to see by just flying above everything. I am not a huge Jason Alden fan but his song “Fly Over States” hits home with me. By not flying I have seen so many interesting things: a heard of sheep at a cow crossing in Wyoming, Wall Drugs and Corn Palace in South Dakota, and I have taken “a ride across the badlands” as the song suggests. I have no desire to go overseas when I still have so much more here on mainland USA I haven’t seen yet, and maybe some of Canada.
On to book three…
But first a short detour to read…
Now on to Book 2…
I have been flying through books it seems like. Here is the run down.
The Sinclair’s Series by J.S. Scott:
I am finished with this series or at least finished until another one comes out and I am pretty sure there will be more after the bombshell shocker in the last book. I would like to go back a read Jason and Hopes book from a different series so that is on my to read list.
The Outer Banks Baker Series by Phoebe T. Eggli:
I am still on Book 2 of this series, Sage Advice to Cover Up a Murder! I took what I thought would be a short break to read, in honor of memorial day, a Civil War Romance but I loved it so much and there are three of them in the series, so I am now working my way through them.
Hearts Touched by Fire Series by Gina Danna:
This is the Civil War series I am currently engrossed in. I finished the first book in less than a week but the second book is a little more of a struggle for me. It is taking a little longer to get into it than the first one did but I will get there, plus I haven’t had as much free time to really jump into it.
Not Quite Crazy by Catherine Bybee:
This was the newest in the Not Quite Series and another one I have finished recently. I am always up for a Catherine Bybee novel.
Come Home to Me by Liz Talley:
This was one of my “car reads” (aka listen as I drive). I really enjoy Liz Talley’s Morning Glory series and I can’t wait for the next one in the series to be released, so I thought I would see what this book was. This book was wow! Is what it is. I highly recommend this book. It was not just a romance it was a work of art.
– Now That You Mention It by Kristen Higgins (car read)
– Finish Hearts Touched By Fire Series
– Finish Outer Banks Baker Series
– Christmas in July reading
– Read Jason and Hopes Story (one of the Sinclairs)
– Reread Gone With the Wind
And I am sure much more
I just finished another wonderful Catherine Bybee novel. Not Quite Crazy is the sixth book in the Not Quite Series. This is the third of the Fairchild brothers (Jason) road to love. Although Jason is the oldest of the three flying crazy siblings and the head of the family business but he is the last of the billionaire brothers to find love. In this book I also got to catch up with some old friends from the earlier books. I’m not sure if this is the end of the series but if it is not I know who I would love to see find love next. Now that I think about it more there are actually two people I would like to see find love next. So I really hope this is not the end of the series.
