Books, books and more books!

I've been home for the last few months recovering from surgery, and during this time I've been busy - despite supposedly convalescing. For the first while Netflix was my friend - I couldn't get my fuzzy brain to do much else - and then I gradually got back to writing, sometimes knitting, and reading, reading, reading. During this time my young adult book, THAT NIGHT, was released by Evernight Teen, and promotion along with a book blog tour kept me extra busy.

So as I get ready to go back to my 'day job' (oh how I wish THIS, what I'm doing right now, WAS my day job), I am reflecting on the last few months of health challenges (on track now), and where did all that time go?!

Here are just a few of the books I read. Some I remembered to post and give a brief review on my Goodreads Author Page - hope you'll stop by!

'Unteachable' - a new adult novel by Leah Raeder. A page-turning emotional roller coaster.

'Hit and Run' a young adult novel by Lurlene McDaniel. A gritty novel for teens tackling extreme moral and ethical issues.

'November 9' - a novel for adults by Colleen Hoover. Another page-turning emotional roller coaster the premise being they meet every year on the same date.

'You Know Where to Find Me' - a young adult novel by Rachel Cohn. Another great teen read by this prolific author has you on a journey with the character as she finds her place in the world after the death of her cousin.

'Loud Awake and Lost' - a young adult novel by Adele Griffin dealing with post car-accident amnesia. I loved following the character's journey as she wades through healing along with flickering memories.

'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte. I read this book in highschool and I loved it then as I love it now. I have read this countless times since then, and will likely read it countless more.

'Echo Burning' by Lee Child. Another fast-paced, action-packed Jack Reacher story. These books have been a fave of mine and they never fail to entertain me.

Wow! I guess my tastes are more varied and eclectic than I realize!

So on these rainy days leading up to the holiday season, I hope you find time to grab a book - any book - and get reading!
