**********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     
How was your reading week?  

Have you read anything that you just can't keep to yourself?

  6. Let me know how you like The Orphan Train, samstillreading.

    It was the second book I read by Ms. Kline. Excellent read.

    I read Bird In Hand by Ms. Kline way back in 2010 and then didn't read anything else until Orphan Train and now Sweet Water.

    ENJOY your reading week.

    THANKS for stopping by.

  12. I want pretty much every book on your list! I have The Girl Who Came Home and am looking forward to reading it one day. Your excerpts of Sweet Water have looked really great. Also the cover on The Lightkeeper's Wife is eye catching! Look forward to these reviews! I think most will end up on my TBR!

    The Orphan Train is historical fiction. Sweet Water is good southern literature.

  25. Hi Elizabeth,

    'The Lightkeeper's Wife' sounds really good, although there is another book with exactly the same title, so I got waylaid checking out both synopses!

    There are so many great looking titles in your upcoming reads, that it would take me an age to check them all out and would probably send Goodreads into overdrive, with the number of them I would be marking as 'Want To Read'! I shall just add them one at a time, as you highlight them after reading!

    Thanks for sharing,

    Yvonne

  26. Good idea to wait until you see what someone you know says about a book.

    The Lightkeeper's Wife is good, but it has a lot of pirates in it. :)

    Thanks for stopping, Yvonne.
