What I'm Reading Wednesdays

Autumn Leaves

Don't forget to check out this post for a Giveaway of my newest novel, Autumn Leaves.  Quick synopsis:

Angie Demarco is a small town, family girl. She’s the ultimate peace keeping middle daughter of a tight knit family in southeastern Tennessee. When the youngest girl announces to the family that she’s pregnant at 17, it sends shock waves through the family, and Angie finds herself picking up the pieces.

Carter Haage is an active duty soldier stationed two hours north of Angie and her family at Fort Campbell. Upon returning from an arduous deployment, he and some friends take a much needed retreat to her small town.

While Angie and Carter are instantly drawn to each other, the timing is terrible for both of them. Angie is trying to untangle her family’s drama. Carter has committed himself to serve our country. This is a contemporary clean romance novel with a lot of heart, redemption, and family angst.

Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

Love Warrior

This is a memoir that hit my radar before it was published.  I don't remember how now, but I was jazzed to see my library pick it up immediately.  I put my name on the hold list, and I had no idea I'd really want to be reading Pierce Brown's next installment, Golden Sun, instead.  The only reason I'm not is that I haven't actually checked it out from the library yet.

Luckily for me, this memoir is written so beautifully.  I'm about a third of the way through, and Melton's struggles speak volumes about the concern I have about our society.  It is very thought provoking and deep while urging the reader along her life.  Her metaphor for mining canaries is alone worth the read.  Surprisingly, it reads quickly.  I hesitate to call it a light read, but I think I'll have it done in 3 or 4 days which is lightning speed for me these days.

Love Released: Women of Courage Episode One by Geri Foster

Love Released (Women of Courage, #1)

This is my first BookBub freebie read.  I was hesitate to actually pick this one out of my list of 5 or so downloaded for right now because Golden Sun!  I'm often like a broken record player.

I am still a little hesitant because I couldn't track down how explicit this author or this novel is, but I'm enjoying the read so far.  It's a very short read, maybe even novella length.  It's immediately intriguing.  I am already devoted to the characters, and I am really enjoying it.

While I am completely impatient to get my next Brown book, both of these books are very satisfying and enjoyable to read in the meantime.
