Another Week Monday Morning Musings

Sunday was a beautiful day. The weather was warm and it was a relaxing day. My son and Grandma Peachy profile 1his family came over for awhile to visit. I read a bit, colored in my adult color book a bit and generally just enjoyed the day.

This week I plan on finishing the Exiled series by Scott Borgman. I obtained the three book series as a set on Kindle Unlimited and am currently in the second book. If all goes well I’ll have a review of the set on Friday. Exiled Trilogy by Scott Borgman coverI can usually finish a book in a day assuming other obligations don’t prevent me from reading.

Another of my favorite authors had his first book free on Amazon over the weekend so although I read it several months ago I added it to our library. He is having “Blade of the Destroyer” published as an audio book and I listened to the first two chapters on Sunday, he chose a perfect voice to narrate the book. Bucelarii - CopyAdditionally I went ahead and bought his recently published book even though it is available on KU. Andy Peloquin is a marvelous author and I am looking forward to reading his newest story “In The Days  A Tale of the Forgotten Continent.”In The Days A Tale of the Forgotten Continent by Andy Peloquin cover

On another reading related topic, the Goodreads group Trail Mix readers has an ongoing book of the month for several different genres. I happen to moderate the historical fiction part of the group. For April I’ve chosen “The Luck of the Weissensteiners” by Christoph Fischer. The Luck of the Weissensteiners by Christoph Fischer coverIt is the first of the Three Nations Trilogy. Reading the blurb I felt it was a great choice for BOTM in historical fiction. I hope that I can inspire readers who enjoy human interest stories during the early to mid 1900’s in war torn Europe to pick up this book and be interested in the rest of the trilogy as well. I know I’ll be reading the whole series at some point. I’d be pleased to have new members join the GR Trail Mix Readers group. Just about any genre there is has a BOTM selection, so, historical fiction isn’t the only thing in the library.

My TBR list is growing. Several purchases recently are still sitting in my Kindle library unread. I’ve also downloaded some on the iBook application on my phone. My friend knows about my and my daughters love of reading, she send us t-shirts that explain our love of reading. t-shirts reading fantasy world Have to love friends who do things like this out of the blue.  She loves me. Thank you so much Tamara Anita!

I guess I’ve run out of things to talk about for today. I hope you will check out the books I’ve mentioned today and seriously consider reading some of them. When you do read a book, please, please, don’t forget to write a review and post it on Amazon, Goodreads or anywhere else that you can. Indie authors thrive on reviews. It is your review that helps others decide if they want to read the book. The more readers, the more exposure indie authors get. Most of their books are just as good as any traditionally published book and oft times I find them even better than some I’ve gotten that were published traditionally. Don’t limit yourself because you’d be missing a lot of good stories.

Happy Reading!

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
