The Sunday Salon

Hello fellow Saloners! I'm running a bit behind today with my post, but I have a good reason - I went to church this morning and then out to lunch with my parents. So far the day has been just lovely. It's a bit warm, but the breeze is blowing so its not too bad. 

I got up early this morning and read the first 80 pages of THE LAST BRIDGE by Teri Coyne, a book I received through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.  It's a debut novel with intense writing. It's a quick read and I'm sure a lot of you could read in one sitting if not interrupted.  I'm finding it hard to put down.  

I finished TRUE COLORS by Kristin Hannah a few days ago and will post my review this week.  That was my first KH book and I can say I'm now a fan!  Now I want to go back and read some of her older books. I hear FIREFLY LANE is pretty good. 

A book that has caught my eye this week is by another new-to-me author, Elizabeth Berg.  Her new book HOME SAFE  just came out last week from Random House and is beginning to show up on a few blogs.  I actually got familiar with Ms. Berg from reading Karen Harrington's blog.  She really likes her writing style and has mentioned her several times, which made me curious.  I'm looking forward to trying out this author's work. 

As for today, I'm planning to get comfy and curl up with THE LAST BRIDGE and hopefully get as close as I can to finishing it.   What book has your attention today?


  1. I read The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted by Elizabeth Berg recently. It was the first one of her books I read. I really enjoyed her writing. I'll be putting Home Safe on my tbr.

  2. I got The Last Bridge from Library Thing too. Now I can't wait to read it.

  3. I haven't read anything by Kristin Hannah yet, but her books sound great. I'm glad you enjoyed True Colors and I will be eagerly awaiting your review.

  4. The Last Bridge looks really good. Your Sunday sounds very relaxing. I just got back from a weekend at the Disney resort and I am completely wiped out.

  5. sounds like you have had a lovely day. Some great books there too.

  6. Sounds like a nice way to spend a Sunday Lisa. I've always enjoyed Berg's writing. I already put a hold on this one at the library. Have a great week.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
