Such an incredible day with an incredible author! She‘s engaging and funny and very knowledgeable. I couldn‘t have asked for a better day. Pictured is her inscription to me in the tagged book. Such a humbling experience.

Incidentally, she found out today that her editor accepted the draft for her fifth book. A few revisions needed, but it‘s slated to be published November 2020.

KathyWheeler Yay! It all went well. ❤️😊 56m

My Year in the Middle | Lila Quintero Weaver

This book should be easy to read — it‘s meant for middle schoolers, so the language is easy and the chapters are short. I‘m just not all that drawn in by the main character and her story. I‘m reading it for a committee I‘m on so I feel that I should finish it. I need some encouragement! Update: 4 & 5 star reviews all over Goodreads, making me think I‘m missing something.

This was a really amazing book. Very hard to read in some places because of the terrible things done but I could not put this book down. I started it yesterday and wow. Brilliantly written and a beautiful book.

“There will be another prince like him,” he swears. “Better than him. Me. I am the new Prince of Wales and I shall be King of England in his place, and you can get used to it.”

Best line so far.

The Forest | Edward Rutherfurd

Loved this one about five families who live in the New Forest whose lives interconnect over the years from 1066 to 2000. Beautifully written with a great sense of how the Forest evolves and progresses through the eras. Some great characters and love the fact that real life ones are mixed with the fictional. I was totally immersed. Sorry it ended.

I really enjoyed this Amazon First choice! The WWII-era is my favorite historical time period to read about and this book gave a different perspective and story to the time.
It's a fictional story of a murder investigation in Dresden Germany as the Nazi regime falls. The characters are interesting and I honestly didn't see the ending coming!
