Morning Meanderings: New Books and Discussions

Happy Sunday! Hopefully you are all having a good weekend. Mine has been bonkers crazy and I am honestly a bit tired. I have officially been back form vacation in Alabama for one week today. I worked all week – went with friends to Detroit Lakes for a fun overnight of games, laughter, and good food, beat butt home early Saturday morning to work a full day doing weddings tastings and now today trying to catch up a bit on non profit happenings and not suck up my whole day with “to do’s”
Trying….The two books in the picture are books that came to my home this past week – both ordered while I was on vacation. My Favourite Daughter by Kaira Rouda is of course because I am so impressed with Kaira’s writing I want to read more. The Life She Was Given by Ellen Marie Wiseman showed up on a list of “must reads” I picked up on and besides being fascinated with the cover… the book sounds really interesting as well.

On Tuesday, my book club will be discussing The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. I am still listening to this one on audio and will be curious to see what the Bookies think of it. The discussion will be taking place at my home which will be fun as we have been ZOOM meeting for some time now with an occasional face to face meet up and I am excited to have most of us in the same room together with real food and beverages! Our Books Burgers and Brews discussion of The Whisper Network will be next Monday, March 15th by ZOOM and all are welcome to join in on that discussion as it is an open book group. You can see the info on The Whisper Network on our website as well as our next two reads –
The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead discussion on April 19th
Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan on May 17th.
Our Summer Additions will be posted soon.

That’s it for book updates and me. What are you reading?

  1. I’ve been on a tear lately with ARCs, but, sitting in my currently reading queue are “The Rose Keeper “by Jennifer Lamont Leo, “Vanilla and Vendettas” by Lisa Seifert, “The Doctors Blackwell” (library loan) by Janice Nimura and finally, weighing in at 1000+ pages, Geoffrey Wells’ “The Drowning Bay”, the finally of his series of three that you might be interested in Sheila. Also just finished Anna Celeste Burke’s “A Fairway to Arms in Hemingway Hills “(Seaview Cottages Cozy Mystery #4) and “The Verses Versus Empire Collection” by Abdiel Le Roy which is a series 20 years in the making editorializing on politics. I love his work…it is very tongue-in-cheek

  2. Oooooh, the Vanishing Half was so interesting. It will be cool to see what your book group thinks of it. And Nickel Boys was a fascinating read that really got me thinking.

  3. There is probably plenty to discuss with The Vanishing Half. I participated in a discussion with the author and the LA Times and the chat room was hopping.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
