Books Completed Last Week:

THE GIRL WROTE IN SILK by Kelli Estes for a July 7, 2015, post.


This book is FANTASTIC!!  I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the book.

An excerpt from my review is below.  My full review will be up on July 7.

"THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK is a​n ​appealing, alluring read​ with charming, unforgettable characters​.  You will love Mei Lien and admire her for her courage.  You will also love her husband, Joseph, but despise Duncan Campbell.

The book is as captivating as the book's title and cover, and THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK becomes even more intriguing each time you turn the page and clues are revealed.


I thoroughly enjoyed THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK, but have some tissues ready.
"

I hope you get to read this book.

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

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 2015 and 2016.

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?
