Current Readings - January 28th, 2017

Whew! These last two months have been a whirlwind. Of course it's cold and flu season, so I have been doing a lot of sleeping and resting, instead of reading  😕.

I'm trying to get caught back up on my reading now, I am so far behind.

Here are my current readings:

The Last American Vampire - Seth Grahame Smith
The Sisters of Sugarcreek - Cathy Liggett
Twilight - Stephanie Meyer
And I'm about to start reading some books on my Kindle as well.

What are you reading? Are they old favorites? Have you found new, refreshing authors?

Share your list in the comment section below. You can also share any recommendations that you may have.

Happy Reading!

Book Review #4 - While You Were Sleeping

While You Were SleepingWhile You Were Sleeping by Kathryn Croft
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A thrilling page turner!

Tara Logan lives a fairly normal life. With a teenage daughter who can't seem to stay out of trouble and her eleven year old son who is the apple of her eye, and her husband, with whom the marriage feels a tad bit of a strain. When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids go to stay with friends, Tara finds herself with extra time on her hands. She decides to go over and see if her neighbor and friend is ok, after receiving a worrisome text that same morning.

The next morning Tara wakes in bed, but not her own bed, but rather her neighbors' bed. The man next to her is not her husband and he is not alive either. Terrified Tara flees to her house and the spiral of madness descends.

As a writer, this book inspired me to continue at the Thriller I am currently trying to write. Ms. Croft definitely knows how to tell an amazing story.
Throughout the book, it has you constantly guessing, and just when you think you have the killer identified, something else comes to light. In the end, the killer end up being the person you never even suspected.

The page turning thrill of the storyline leaves you breathless and in suspense with each line of each page. Leaving you wanting more and waiting with bated breath for the answers.

I was so inspired by this book and so amazed, that I suggested this read to my grandmother. So far, she is loving every minute of it.

This is a must read, definitely!
