Actually my favorite, Last of the Breed is not a western.

Guess I told a fib as I have read Last of the Breed - twice!! Never realized it was a Lamour. How about the westerns?

I am reading the 6th book in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon - long books but if you like 'historical' kinda romance then they are good.

I love most of the westerns, especially the Sackett series. The short stories, not as much. I particularly like his brief paintings of the landscapes and understanding of cultures. Another fav of mine is Robert Heinlein, a sci fi writer who made especially delightful characters.

I'm on book #35 for the year, The Girl From Everywhere, by Heidi Heilig.

It's been a rough year so far - I've abandoned quite a few books. Most recently, I dumped three in a row over 2-3 days. That almost never happens! I find myself wondering What Was I Thinking when I acquired them. doh

I'm leaning toward serials that I've already started, and the fluff is rising to the top. winking Whenever I try to start a new (and grittier) series or standalone, I tend to lose interest fairly early.

Fortunately, I have lots and lots of books still in 'the stack'.

I just finished Jubal by Lamour. Somehow, I had missed this one. I loved it.

Finally got around to finishing The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Hard book to get in to, but glad I finished it, it was a good read after the first few chapters.

- The Women in the Castle - Jessica Shattuck
- The Woman on the Orient Express - Lindsay Jayne Ashford
- Goodnight from London - Jennifer Robson
- Little Beach Street Bakery - Jenny Colgan

Wow, I haven't heard of any of those authors, buzzysma!  That's a first, maybe winking

Helen, I started The Sisters Brothers after being on the waitlist a long, long time. I got fairly far into it, but it just didn't do anything for me. I don't know if it was the writing or the genre or... I dunno.

Currently I'm on book #91 for the year, The Loving Daylights by Lynsay Sands. No vampires, no murders. Just plain old fun. There was a part in the book where I had to pull over (listening while driving) because I was laughing too hard to be a safe driver. It had to do with a yappy dog, a scared cat and a naked guy.
Shocked

lmao lmao

FB I knew about about The Sisters Brothers at all, never heard of it, it just caught my eye on the library shelf and being free to borrow, I thought why not. Ive since discovered its being made into a movie, it was different, very basic easy read, read it in two nights and now I know its to be a movie I can see how it would work very easily. Its almost like reading a movie plot the way its written. Wow, book 91 holy schmoley, I like the idea you had to pull over because you were laughing so hard, thats a good day for sure

Byzzysma I havent heard of any of them either, hmmmmm

The Dixie Divas had a part in it that I would not have been able to drive through either. It also involved a dog, a pug to be exact, and not exactly a naked man, but a, how shall I put this delicately....a fake man part. lmao lmao lmao

Almost done with Mischief in Maggody by Joan Hess. This is a comical maystery series set in Maddogy, Ark. Lots of profanity but funny!

I like to pick random books off the new book shelf at the library if the title catches my eye. Those I listed, except for the Bakery one, were new books. They all have 4 or 4 1/2 stars on Amazon. 4 of them are WWII novels with a lot of history in them along with the story line which I like. I had already read a Jenny Colgan & liked it so going back to read her others. Those are quick fun reads.

I'm reading The Double Cross: A Someday Quilts Mystery by Clare O'Donohue. This is the third in the series, I'll probably go back and read the first two when I'm finished.

You're probably already finished by now, but yes, it was fine. I don't remember being *hooked*, but I liked it well enough to put the author on my Look-For list.

I just finished one from the Smythe-Smith Quartet series, The Sum of All Kisses, by Julia Quinn. I like this world - characters being quirky within the confines Victorian England. Total Romance (capital R), but fun most of the time.

Yeah it was ok, an easy read, I believe I have read another of hers, would be a good book for a day at the beach. Im onto Devils Cut by JR Ward now, 3rd book in the Bourbon Kings series, enjoying that

I am re-reading Gerald Durrell's books on his family's 5 years on Corfu. His images are delightful, as are his family members.

I finished Devils Cut, have two others here, neither of them are doing much for me, sigh maybe I should be hand sewing at night? Maybe I should just put my Hairy Bikers Curry Book beside my chair and choose some recipes to cook
