It's Monday! What are You Reading? November 10, 2014

This meme starts at Book Journey!

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

This is very late as I didn't get to do internet on Saturday and Sunday. We had a good vacation with a visit to Savannah on Friday and then on to finish with a visit with my sister and brother-in-law before we came home late Sunday night. 

I did enjoy the reading last week and seemed to get a lot done.   I posted four books, all with giveaways.   I posted the usual memes but SBB was late and I didn't get to do a Sunday post. :-(

I did only a little visiting early in the week and didn't get to do more as we were turning lights out by 8:30 every evening.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

These were last week's posts:

Peace & Goodwill: a contemporary romance, a Christmas Novella (The Minstrel Series Book 4)
by Lee Strauss
I received this for blog tour and review posting on 11/12.
This looks very sweet.
Book Description
Publication Date: November 17, 2014
*This is a Christmas Novella
**Peace & Goodwill is set in The Minstrel Series world, but can be read alone.
     Belle gets the best Christmas present ever, a man in uniform! Ian is a soldier home on leave. Neither of them have any idea how good it will feel to fall in love or how hard it will be to say good-bye.
     Anna is spending the holidays alone again with only her faithful dog Angel to keep her company. She can’t afford to pay the rent and her landlord is threatening to kick her out. At least she’s finished with her chemo treatments. She can be thankful for that. Plus, there’s Rhys, the handsome visitor with kind eyes.
     One fateful, cold and snowy night a chance encounter changes everything. Love is lost. Love is found. Life will never be the same.
     Peace & Goodwill, a Christmas novella in The Minstrel Series, grabs the heartstrings and pulls hard.
***includes mp3 link to featured original song.

Falling Up: Hours
I have looked but been unable to find a "blurb" or description for this.
It is a paranormal novella that brings the reader to a world of orphans and focuses on 6th graders as they explore a mysterious gym.
I am midway and find it very engaging.

Louisiana Fever
by D.J. Donaldson
I was offered a guest post by this author and requested the book to review as it sounded so interesting and timely. I will be posting these later this week.
Book Description
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
“D.J. Donaldson is superb at spinning medical fact into gripping suspense. With his in-depth knowledge of science and medicine, he is one of very few authors who can write with convincing authority.” --Tess Gerritsen, NY Times best-selling author of the Rizzoli & Isles novels
    Andy Broussard, the plump and proud New Orleans medical examiner, obviously loves food. Less apparent to the casual observer is his hatred of murderers. Together with his gorgeous sidekick, psychologist Kit Franklyn, the two make a powerful, although improbable, mystery solving duo.
    When the beautiful Kit goes to meet an anonymous stranger—who’s been sending her roses—the man drops dead at her feet before she even could even get his name. Game on.
    Andy Broussard soon learns that the man carried a lethal pathogen similar to the deadly Ebola virus. Soon, another body turns up with the same bug. Panic is imminent as the threat of pandemic is more real than ever before. The danger is even more acute, because the carrier is mobile, his identity is an absolute shocker, he knows he’s a walking weapon and… he’s on a quest to find Broussard. And Kit isn’t safe either. When she investigates her mystery suitor further, she runs afoul of a cold blooded killer, every bit as deadly as the man searching for Broussard.
    Louisiana Fever is written in Donaldson’s unique style: A hard-hitting, punchy, action-packed prose that’s dripping with a folksy, decidedly southern, sense of irony. Add in Donaldson’s brilliant first hand knowledge of forensics and the sultry flavor of New Orleans, and the result is first class forensic procedural within an irresistibly delectable mystery.

My husband and I purchased a stack of these to read with church and family. This is our Ladies Book Club reading for discussion on Saturday 11/15. It is fascinating and I will be offering a copy for giveaway.
Book Description

The book you can't afford NOT to read.
It is already affecting your life…
And it WILL affect your future!
Is it possible that there exists a three-thousand-year-old mystery that…
· Has been determining the course of your life without your knowing it?

· Revealed the dates and the hours of the greatest crashes in Wall Street history before they happened?
· Determined the timing of 9/11?
· Lies behind the rise of America to global superpower… and its fall?
· Has forecast the rising and falling of the world’s stock market throughout modern times?
· Lies behind world wars and the collapse of nations, world powers, and empires?
· Holds key to what lies ahead for the world and for your life?
· And much more….

I am caught up on my daily Bible reading.
I have disciplined myself each morning to read my Bible passage before I pick up print, Kindle or mp3. I am really enjoying the reading.
