Reading Recommendations & Spring Updates

Greetings from my reading nook/writing lair!

I’ve been reading lots during the cold weather, haven’t you? Such a pleasant way to pass the time. I'm grateful for the warmth of spring (not that it will stop me from reading!).

  • Confession: I’m a big Kindle reader. I know, it’s no replacement for the feeling of a book in your hands and the scent of ink and paper, but the thing lights up so I can read in bed, and it holds a LOT of books. Now that I’ve confessed, I’ll tell you that I recently read 13 books in a series. Michelle Vernal’s Guesthouse on the Green series is about a quirky Irish family who run an inn. I can’t remember ever laughing out loud so much while reading! I got the series from Kindle Unlimited—which is part of the reason I put up with punctuation and spelling errors that infested the first several books. The newer ones are better in that regard. BUT I totally recommend the series if you like family stories with romance, laughs, and a lot of heart.                                                                           


  • New book alert! I just finished Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson this morning. It was fantastic! It had a fun, Princess Bride tone, a steadfast heroine on a quest to save her love, piracy, a talking rat, magical spore seas, and a cast of unique/odd characters. You don’t want to miss this one!                                                                                 
  • Finally, a Kindle Vella recommendation! It’s YA fairy tale/fantasy/romance—hence, my cup of tea—entitled A Forest of Stolen Memories, by Callie Thomas. Vella’s episodic format is perfect for a fast-paced, magical story like this one. Here’s the blurb:
A royal wedding turns to disaster when a curse goes awry. A victim of the Sorcerer's prophecy, Roselyn's memories are instantly erased, leaving her panicked at the altar. Confused, she flees to the place her prince fears most--the enchanted Mistbrooke Forest. Danger lurks closer than she can imagine, forcing her to seek help from a dark stranger who may be the key to recovering her lost memories. Can she break the curse without breaking her heart?
