Reading Challenge Update:

I haven’t moved ahead in the challenges and at this point that’s okay.  Challenges will mostly be a non happening for me in 2020. I think I have reached my fill! Maybe one or two though next year!  I am a goal oriented person but sometimes I think its good not to reach a goal and admit it!

Top Book for November

The Things I Should Have Told You. From Irish author Carmel Harrington. Another 5 star read from this author who now just can’t write fast enough for this reader. A grandad who dies leaves letters for his son and wife and two children to read and he organises so that they take a trip through Europe guided by his letters. The family has various issues and this trip is about to shake them up – in a good way.

I loved this book, the family – the journey – Pops and his letters. I read every word – no skimming. Its warm, funny, emotional and real. I am not a “let’s take a trip” kind of person but this was so inspiring. I loved the map at the beginning.

Looking forward to reading in December

This review re- issue written by Emilie Richards book Runaway, the first of a romantic suspense trilogy set in New Orleans. Will be published in January. I love when favourite authors get the rights back to their books and it gives me an opportunity to explore books I never knew of to read. This involves a librarian who is searching for her missing sister.
