Readers often ask me what I’m reading. Since I love getting book recommendations, I’ll try to do a better job of sharing what I’m reading and what I think about it. I like love story, happy type books and I like history. I do not like suspense, scary, mean or ugly books!
I get email from a coupon or money saving group. Not even sure how I connected with them but they’ll often mention a free Kindle book and I rush to download it because what’s free right now, may not be free in 10 minutes.
Paper Roses by Amanda Cabot, which is the first in her Texas Dreams Trilogy, was offered as a free Kindle book several months ago and I downloaded it and loved it. The second in the series is Scattered Petals, which I also loved, and the third is Tomorrow’s Garden, which I’m hoping to finish reading tonight. There’s a little faith mentioned, though I never got the feeling that religion was being forced upon me. Reading these books, though they are fiction, reminds me of what life must have been like in our country in the 1800′s. We have it so easy in so many ways and so many of the hardships from which we suffer today are of our own making. I have to wonder what those characters in these three books would think if they were transformed into today’s society.
There was a little bit of sadness, a little bit of suspense, some romance but not enough that I would call these romance novels. The trilogy left me wishing Amanda Cabot had more books.
There are so many books in my Kindle, I’m not even sure what I’ll read once I finish Tomorrow’s Garden.
