Its been quite a week. Between Mom and her bad days, the new puppy and all of his pooping, an overflowed toilet (and accompanying plumbers bill - it was quite a clog), broken water line on our street and no water for 12+ hours, and our first brush with ticks, well, lets just say I'm ready to escape into a good book :)
Right now I'm reading a few books (I usually have on average 3 books going at all times). I got An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon from the library. Although it is one of the smaller of her books int he Outlander series, I am having more difficulty reading this one than any of the others. I think maybe part of the reason is that this book is less about Claire and Jamie and more about Lord John and William. Honestly, if I wanted to read about Lord John, I'd read one of the books from that series. Anyway, I'm not sure I will be able to finish it before I have to return it.
I also got Going Rougue by Sarah Palin from the library. This one is much easier to read. The story is interesting and the writing style is easy to read - just what my overwhelmed brain needs right now :)
Also, with my MyPoints points, I was able to get a $25 Amazon gift certificate code and I ordered Independence Days by Sharon Astyk. Sharon's writing style is so enjoyable both in her books and on her blog. This book combines "how to" with "why" in an easy to read and interesting book that I was tempted to read cover to cover in one sitting.
Since I am almost done with Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, I am looking for a some fiction suggestions. What are you reading?
