Weekly Reading Round-Up
Between college reunion, Book Expo, and preschool graduation, this week has been something of a fog (what’s my name again?), but I did manage to snatch a little reading time in the midst of the madness:
— Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date, a fun contemporary romance set in California;
— and the latest Ruth Galloway mystery, The Stone Circle, featuring the ongoing adventures of a forensic archaeologist with a very complicated personal life.
And now I’m wondering what to read next…. Any suggestions for what I should read while I’m on book tour next week?
Speaking of book tour, The Summer Country launches at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, GA next Tuesday! I know Atlanta traffic can be hideous, so I’m making two other Georgia stops on Wednesday, in Decatur and Gwinnett. Later in the week, you can find me in Milwaukee, WI; Chicago, IL; Scottsdale, AZ; and New York, NY. You can find a full list of events here.
As always, if you can’t make an event, but would like a signed copy, the wonderful people at FoxTale would be more than happy to help– and they’ll throw in a special palm tree charm bookmark, too!
Oh, and in case you missed it, I have a buddy read contest going on Facebook and Instagram right now. Tag a friend (on one of the posts in either place) for a chance to win two ARCs of The Summer Country so you can read it together. Because, sometimes, you really need to talk over a book with a friend who’s reading it, too!
What have you been reading this week?
I finished up The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, a Christie classic, and to tide me over until you book event next week I decided to pick up The Glass Ocean again…
Nonfiction: Sally Bedel Smith’s Elizabeth The Queen: Life of a Modern Monarch
Historical Fiction: Ella March Chase’s The Virgin Queen’s Daughter (about Elizabeth I’s alleged bastard daughter)
Mystery/Historical Fiction: everything by the late Ariana Franklin (specifically, her Mistress of the Art of Death series…a female doctor turned detective in Medieval Europe)
