IT'S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING? 28.4.14

Welcome to another Monday at FHC!
After a 24 hr stretch of Dewey's Readathon on Saturday
I had a fair amount of sleeping to catch up on.
I had tackled 375 pgs of THE OUTCAST for my own reading
[as opposed to reading for review] 
my usual tendency to catch up on reading,
so it really was a reading break for me.
A well organized readathon with over 800+ readers
and a lot of great mini challenges throughout to inspire creativity 
keeping us alert and awake!
My results and challenges HERE - my participation HERE

My reading completions this week included Canadian author, Emily T Weirenga's heart touching debut novel, 
A PROMISE IN PIECES - 
#17 in Quilts of Love series
FHC book tour stop here on May 1

Quilts tell stories of love and loss, hope and faith, tradition and new beginnings.  The Quilts of Love series focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family history. Featuring contemporary and historical romances as well as women's fiction and the occasional light mystery, you will be drawn into the endearing characters of this series and be touched by their stories.es focuses on the women who quilted all of these things into their family history.

My Saturday was spent with this amazing novel  and so not disappointed!  Jolina Petersheim writes authentic characters and a story that captivated emotions and intellect.  Definitely pleased to add this to my 'read' list.

Raised in an Old Order Mennonite community, Rachel is a strong-willed single woman, content living apart from mainstream society until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. 
When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, however, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home.

I completed reading last week + posted my review of Tamera Alexander's epic new release, A BEAUTY SO RARE, last evening.
Just click title to read my thoughts and the publisher's synopsis.  Book 2 in the Belmont Mansion series, definitely stand alone, so no worries if you, like me, missed the first.
Though now I will be chasing
A LASTING IMPRESSION down asap!

What's up for this week?
Posting a couple of reviews and,
I always cringe to name a title, because
life can change that intention so quickly, but I do hope to get into SINCERELY YOURS.  

Historical novellas from four outstanding storytellers, four young women find their lives altered after each receives a letter that sets her on a new path toward a changed life--and perhaps lifelong love.

*
I'm anticipating the new release of the amazing Jessica Dotta's
2nd in the Price of Privilege series, MARK OF DISTINCTION.

I'm also anticipating it in my postbox!
Totally grateful to have won a copy from the author's Release Party invitation to post about it!  Thank you, Jessica !

London is said to be the glittering jewel of society, a world unto itself—but to Julia Elliston it is a city of shadows. Her life is swiftly dissolving into scandal. And in Victorian society, even a whisper of scandal—substantiated or not—can be the death of a young woman’s reputation.

*
Another anticipated package is a win from
the author, Katie Ganshert ~ Thank you!
*
Broken Kind of Beautiful 
by Katie Ganshert
Fashion is a fickle industry, a frightening fact for twenty-four-year-old model Ivy Clark. Ten years in and she's learned a sacred truth -- appearance is everything. Nobody cares about her broken past as long as she looks beautiful for the camera.

This meme is so dangerous or... so wonderful. I have just put the quilt story Promises in Pieces into my wishlist. I love stories that have quilts in them, so much so I want to learn quilt making and plan to begin next year when I will have more time. Have a great reading week. Love your quote at the top of your blog.

The Outcast is on my wishlist and I picked up the 1st book in the Price of Privilege trilogy thanks to your previous Monday post :)

Have a wonderful week and happy reading.
