When it’s cold outside, what sounds better than grabbing your grandmother’s afghan and curling up on the couch with your hot beverage of choice and a good read? Nothing, I tell you. Nothing. Below are my current reading picks as well as local book signings and book clubs.
Francine Rivers’ 2 part Marta Legacy series, Her Mother’s Hope and Her Daughter’s Dream are must reads! You’ll be crying and contemplating motherhood in the midst of this excellent read! (My review on Her Mother’s Hope and Her Daughter’s Dream, if you’re interested.)
James Patterson’s Alex Cross series. I’m currently reading Alex Cross’s Trial. Not only is it a great read but the chapters are short (like 3-4 pages short). For a busy mama like me who gets spurts of reading time here and there, short chapters create a sense of accomplishment! Alex Cross is one of Patterson’s main characters and there’s many books starring him. Alex Cross’s Trial; I, Alex Cross; and Cross Fire, to name a few. Look for his new book, Tick Tock, in stores January 24th.
Randy Singer’s Fatal Convictions. This is an excellent, excellent book. One that’s hard to put down once you get into it. I let a few friends borrow this book and the consensus was the same! Read my review and author interview here.
Bread is my comfort food. It’s also a “warm me up in cold weather” food. Soup with piping hot bread fresh from the oven? Yum, yum! My current favorite bread books are Peter Reinhardt’s Artisan Breads Every Day and Whole Grain Breads.
Reading time with my 8 year old son has currently involved books from Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House Series. I love how the kid’s imaginations run wild and take them on fun adventures! So far we’ve read Good Morning Gorillas, Lions At Lunchtime, and Sunset of the Sabertooth with many more on the list!
