My Week in Books #3

WEDNESDAY - myweekinbooks

Hey guys, Happy Wednesday!! How have you been? I’m having a good week so far. I was able to take a couple of days off just to spent time with my loved ones but I’ll be going back to work tomorrow and there will be lots of things to attend to.

Anyway, here’s my round-up for this week, a feature hosted by Lipsyy from Lipsyy’s Lost and Found. It’s similar to WWW Wednesday (hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words), so I’m linking to both 🙂

Then: Last week, I finished reading First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen. It took me days to finish reading this, not because it was not good, but because I was so crazy busy with work, I just couldn’t find the time to read. I enjoyed the book though. When I read the last page, I was left unsatisfied not because I hate the ending or how things were resolved but because I want more!! I can’t wait to find more time to read more of Sarah Addison Allen’s books! I also read That’s What Friends Are For by Marcie Steele. This book had been on my TBR since it was released late last year but I kept putting it off because there were other books that I wanted to read this month. However, I found out that the author will have a new book out next month (The Second Chance Shoe Shop) and it’s going to feature characters from the fictional town of Hedworth. It is not a sequel but it is the same place as the characters from That’s What Friends Are For are from, so I thought well, let’s just bump it up the TBR list then. I ended up really enjoying Marcie’s writing, and can’t wait to read her next book! (For full review of That’s What Friends Are For, click here)

Now: I’m currently reading From Here to Home by Marie Bostwick, which will be released on 28th March 2016. This is my first time reading anything from this author, so I don’t really know what to expect. But I am 7 chapters in so far, and I’m liking what I read. Hopefully the momentum continues.

Next: I’m hoping to finish up two more books by the end of the week for review purposes and they are The Rejected Writers’ Book Club by Suzanne Kelman and Dear Thing by Julie Cohen. I’m kinda afraid to read the Julie Cohen book because of all the issues that are brought forward in it but I hope it’s a good book 🙂


Waiting on Wednesday (at Breaking the Spine)

This week, I’m waiting for the release of the second part of Cressida McLaughlin’s Canal Boat Cafe series, Casting Off, which will be released on March 31st. I usually would wait for the whole series to be available to read it in one shot but for this one, I just can’t wait!! I read the first part of the series last month and now am hooked to know what would happen to Summer, Mason and the whole gang. 🙂


Summer Freeman has embarked on a new life afloat. She’s taking the Canal Boat Café on a scenic journey and is meeting old friends and new. Among the new is Claire from the bohemian boating community who is keen to take Summer under her wing. Mason, the handsome photographer from Willowbeck, seems intent on tracking her down, but Summer has discovered that Mason isn’t all that he seems to be.

Summer starts to feel a real sense of freedom amongst wandering river folk, but she soon finds herself missing Willowbeck… And Mason, whose articles she has been reading online. Will Summer embrace the nomadic lifestyle or will she find herself drawn back to Willowbeck, the place she loves best and where Mason is waiting?

What are you guys reading this week? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

  1. I adore Sarah Addison Allen’s books, I always find them so soothing and comforting. I haven’t read First Frost yet though as I want to re-read Garden Spells first but I hope to get to it one day soon. I also love all of Marcie Steele/Mel Sherratt’s books, I always know when I pick one of her books up that I’m in for a treat. 🙂

  2. Any novel that promises secrets gets my attention. Looks like you gave it a good review, too! Also I really love the cover of The Canal Boat Cafe.
