A simple observation

the movement of water
the movement of wind
the movement of birds and squirrels
can still the movement of my mind.

I'm FIXIN to go to the bookstore...

Why? Because;

Linda Grimes latest book - THE BIG FIX- is out today.

Need I say more?

(Oh - you do need me to say more. Well, that must mean you didn't read the first two books in the series or the prequel.
I say more about book one  - IN A FIX - here. Start with IN A FIX and you will become a Linda Grimes fan. Then you can seek out QUICK FIX, then THE BIG FIX, then the prequel - PRE-FIX. After that you won't need direction from me. You will automatically stalk  follow Linda like the fangirl you will become.

Linda is like chips or chocolate. You have one bite and you say - that was tasty or in her case funny -  give me more. To which Linda replies - "ask me nicely.")

Linda Grimes - making people shake heads and laugh out loud for 3 books and a prequel - so far.

Hope she keeps em coming.

Yowza this month flew!

I looked at the date when I last blogged and a whole month has gone by.

I have read some excellent books this month. I'm going to list them but if I miss one, y'all will let me know, won't you?

Soaring by Kristen Ashley - second in the Magdalene series and every bit as good as the first book, The Will.

Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick - always a good read.

Pre-Fix - A Ciel Halligan Short Story - another Linda Grimes laugh-a-lot book.

Soldiers of Fortune - the 6th in the Miss Fortune series - lovable adventures of the 3 women who have come to be known as Swamp Team 3.

Midsummer Tights Dream - 2nd in Louise Rennisons series about Talullah. I'm not usually a YA fan but Talullah is hysterical and I am going to read the 3rd book, The Taming of the Tights, very soon.

Thought I Knew You by Kate Moretti - not my usual fair but a really good intrigue / romance.

A Patchwork Planet by Anne Tyler - haven't read one of hers for years. This one did not disappoint.

The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub - good story. Kind of long for my tastes but I would read it again.

And a book that was so good it deserves it's own blogpost (and hopefully I will write one soon), The Season of the Dragonflies by Sarah Creech. This is her first published novel and I can't wait for more!

Don't know if I've read all of those this month but they are all recent.

Next up for me - Lowcountry Boneyard by Susan M. Boyer. It's the third Liz Talbot mystery.  The first 2 were excellent.
