Currently reading


I spend my days with books, authors, publishers and social media. Reading has been an important part of my life since childhood (the first “chapter” book I remember reading was an American Girl book in early elementary). I spend an hour to 90 minutes each day curled up with my favorite book, and I wanted to update you on what I’ve been reading lately. (By the way, if we’re not friends on Goodreads yet, let’s connect!)

  • Denise Hunter's Dancing with Fireflies: This is book two in the series but can definitely be read as a standalone. This is a great book to bring along in your tote to the beach. 
  • Colleen Coble's Seagrass Pier: If you love a little mystery and a little suspense, this series is the one for you. Book three was by far the spookiest and my favorite in the series.
  • Dee Henderson's Undetected: If you’ve been a fan of Dee’s book for a while, be warned that her most recent books are unlike her previous ones — but the research she’s put into the books is so detailed and really makes the book.
  • Hillary Manton Lodge's A Table by the Window: I am all about foodie fiction, and this book is no exception. As a twenty-something, I really felt like I connected with the protagonist. Also, I ended every chapter feeling hungry and adding the recipes at the end of the chapters to my must-try list.
  • Judy Greer's I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: I’ve never seen a Judy Greer movie I didn’t like. After seeing her promote it on the morning talk shows, I bought it for my spring road trip — and it did not disappoint. Hilarious!
  • Katie Ganshert's Wishing on Willows: This was the first book by Katie I’d read; the dynamics between the characters was page-turning.
  • Timothy Lewis' Forever Friday: If you’re a fan of Nicholas Sparks novels, this book will be right up your alley. It was a very sweet read.
  • Becky Wade's Meant to Be Mine: I’m about halfway through this book right now and am eating it up. The chemistry between the characters is like magic. 

I’m hoping to read 50 books in 2014. Keep up on my progress and see what other books I’ve read so far this year here. You can also see my thoughts on what else I’ve read this year here.
