Monday Summer Reading 5

In the last week I read...

Daughters of Mars by Thomas Keneally

      Loved it!!  In a nutshell, this is the story of two Australian sisters and their experiences as nurses in WWI Africa & Europe.  But it is also the story of the relationship of these young women and the story of those involved in a war zone.  If you like reading about history (emphasis on STORY), travel and/or the relationships between people, you will LOVE this book.

  Kind of interesting to note that the person who reviewed this book before me at our library..... hated this book and gave up in the middle.  So, I guess it you are looking for light reading or a quick read, this may not be a good choice for you!

City Chic: An Urban Girl's Guide to Livin' Large on Less by Nina Willdorf

      I wish I had seen this many years ago!  Some great ideas for saving money yet still living the good life.  Learning how to stretch a dollar and still live the life you enjoy is a skill we can all use!

Behind the Seams by Betty Hechtman

  Okay - I just love these light crochet mysteries.  If you like crochet and murder mysteries - you need to give these a whirl.  This is #6.....  the heroine, Molly Pink, is  a 40-something widow who works in a bookstore.  With a new yarn department and a group of crochet buddies who hang out there regularly and two male interests... and pets and grown kids.. and all sorts of mishaps.... these are interesting and funny and a great no-brainer :-)

I do enjoy reading a series of books... so you can expect to see more of Betty Hechtman in the future!

Do you read series?  Or do you jump around?
