The Sunday Salon - A Special Day


I'd like to wish all of the fabulous moms out there a Happy Mothers Day!  I thought I'd do a quick wrap up of my week since I have a busy day ahead of me. Yesterday was my sister's birthday so my family is doing a double celebration today! 

I had a pretty good book week including posting two reviews. Tuesday was the release of River Jordan's new book, SAINTS IN LIMBO.  I read this last month and not only do I love the title, but the story was captivating.  It has some magical realism which makes it kind of Stephen King-esque.  I really enjoyed it. You can read my review here.

I also posted my review of TRUE COLORS by Kristin Hannah.   This is my first experience with her books and even though it isn't what I would want to read all the time, I did enjoy it. She really knows how to get the emotions going in a story .The relationships between the characters weren't what I expected and sometimes didn't agree with, but it kept my attention.  You can read my full review here

I also finished reading THE LAST BRIDGE by debut author Teri Coyne, but I haven't finished my review yet.  I should have it up in a few days. 

The UPS guy was good to me this week - Yay!  I got two books that I'm reading now and liking both of them very much. One is THE LAST CHILD by John Hart (author of DOWN RIVER), which is being released tomorrow! The other new book is BEACH TRIP by Cathy Holton. 

I probably won't get much of a chance to read today, but I'm looking forward to spending the day with my family. I hope all of you are enjoying your time with people you love on this Mother's Day!
