Sunday Lineup (11.15.2020)

Where has the weekend gone?? I can’t believe it’s already over. We had a pretty productive weekend though and I really enjoyed the time with my husband. I finished one of my favorite books of the year this week (that review will be up Tuesday!) and am working on the second one now.

Kindle/Print

Call of the Bone Ships // by RJ Barker

Synopsis:

Dragons have returned to the Hundred Isles. But their return heralds only war and destruction.

When a horde of dying slaves are discovered in the bowels of a ship, Shipwife Meas and the crew of the Tide Child find themselves drawn into a vicious plot that will leave them questioning their loyalties and fighting for their lives.

Why did I choose this:

I received the ARC for this from Orbit and its pub day is Tuesday in a week!

Current Thoughts:

It’s a great continuation of book 1!

The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek // by Kim Michele Richardson

Synopsis:

The hardscrabble folks of Troublesome Creek have to scrap for everything—everything except books, that is. Thanks to Roosevelt’s Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project, Troublesome’s got its very own traveling librarian, Cussy Mary Carter.

Cussy’s not only a book woman, however, she’s also the last of her kind, her skin a shade of blue unlike most anyone else. Not everyone is keen on Cussy’s family or the Library Project, and a Blue is often blamed for any whiff of trouble. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to the hill folks, she’s going to have to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachias and suspicion as deep as the holler.

Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman’s belief that books can carry us anywhere—even back home.

Why did I choose this:

Books? Horses? Mountains? I’m in!

Current Thoughts:

I’m a couple of hours in and it’s great so far!

I’m really enjoying my books right now which is so fun. I also have some fun stuff lined up for the coming week. What are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it?

Note: I am super excited to be a part of Bookshop.org as an affiliate. With every book sale that is done through my shop link here and above, I receive a percentage which will be used to continue to bring you book-related content (probably going straight back into Bookshop). What is really awesome though is that a percentage will also go to independent book stores across the country, which has already helped support (and even save!) many book stores during the COVID struggles.
