This week’s list is mostly fiction again. I probably should be reading more non-fiction, but as I’m working on several tough projects just now and some pretty tight deadlines, my brain appreciates the break. Light and fluffy is the order of the week.
- The Return, by Ridley Pearson. As I noted last week, the Kingdom Keepers series is taking off in a new direction. I had the “bridge” book out last week and this is the first official book in the new series. Syndrome was interesting, if not great. It’ll be interesting to see where the series goes from here. I hope it doesn’t turn out that Pearson should have quit while he was ahead.
- Cavendon Hall, by Barbara Taylor Bradford. I’m not usually a fan of Bradford’s work, but my mother recommended this one to me because it shares similarities with Downton Abbey, which we’re both crazy for and suffering withdrawals from now that it’s over for the year.
- The Royal We, by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. I grew up in the heyday of the Lady Di craze and I’ve been interested in all things royal ever since. This one is a playful, imagined look at the courtship of William and Kate (although the names are changed and events have been fictionalized). If nothing else, it should be playful fluff.
- Pinterest for Dummies & Pinterest Marketing for Dummies, by Kelby Carr. I’ve about cracked the mysteries of Twitter, but Pinterest is proving a tougher nut to crack. I’m having trouble figuring out exactly how to get followers and get beyond the seeming insularity and cliquishness of the platform. Hopefully, these will help because I’m really enjoying creating boards, but I hate that no one is seeing them.
