Sunday Salon - Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there! Hope this day is a very special one for you!

We've been having nothing but rain these days. You'd think that would make good reading time, but I'm not reading anymore than usual. Perhaps even a little less. I never read more than one book at a time, but this week I tried to read three. I finished one, almost finished with another and still early in the third. I think I'll concentrate on just one after this.

I finished "A Weaver Wedding" by Allison Leigh and it was very good. I received this from Harlequin as part of their "Tell Harlequin" panel. I enjoyed it. This book helped me to complete the Harlequin/Silhouette Reading challenge. I, also, finished listening to Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult, which I really liked. I'm definitely going to be reading more from Picoult. I've already read her My Sister's Keeper and I have a couple of others in my TBR.

I'm hoping to finish Deadly Exchange by Geoffrey M. Gluckman. This is a very intriguing book with quite a bit of action. Then I'll concentrate on finishing up Bella by J Lou McCartney. This is a sequel to her DeMarco Empire book. Actually, I believe it's a prequel to that book. From what I read so far, it's very good. I loved the DeMarco Empire, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this one.

I also had a chance to watch a couple of movies this week - that's what rain will do for you :) I saw Yes Man with Jim Carrey. I haven't seen a Jim Carrey movie in ages and this was cute. Today I saw The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke. What an excellent movie and a great comeback to the acting world by Rourke. Very well done!

That just about wraps up my week in a nutshell. Hope you all have a great week. Happy Reading!

  1. That's one of my favorite kitty photos. :-)

    I wish you could send some of your rain my way. I'm not very good at juggling multiple books at once. I do better when I stick to one at a time. But sometimes, like now, when I'm reading a nonfiction book, I feel the need to try. :-)

    I will be reading DeMarco Empire soon and am looking forward to it. Glad you are enjoying the author's second book!

    I would like to see Yes Man. I've liked some of Jim Carrey's movies over the years, but not all of them. The Wrestler is one I want to see too--I am glad you liked it.

    I hope you have a great week. I can't believe it's already the beginning of another week!

  2. I hope the rain stops soon. We are in between with hot days and cold days at the moment.

    I struggle to read more than one book at a time - I lose the story when I do it.

  3. Reading more than one fiction book at once is very hard for me. I won't be doing this again. The most I'll do is read a non-fiction with the fiction. I've never done this before and now I remember why.

    I wish I could send some of this rain to others who need it more than we do :)
