I’m linking up with It’s Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Kathryn of The Book Date later on today. Kathryn took over this weekly, Monday meme from Shelia of Book Journey who had taken it over from J Kayne Book Blog. This meme is not just about adult books either. If you read picture and chapter books, juvenile fiction, or even YA, they count as well. Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee of Unleashing Readers give this Monday, book post link up a kid-focus.
Not much else is new other than what I had talked about here and here. I got a text from A. yesterday morning when she opened up my card; she wrote her husband had put it in the stack of unopened mail and had just gotten to it. A. loved her birthday card, especially since she knows I handmade it.
Since I did a good amount of knitting last Friday, I spent the weekend starting a new project – cross stitch. Stay tuned this week for a post of what I’m working on. It is somewhat book-related; I’ll flash it here another Monday.
Dukes Prefer Blondes (The Dressmakers #4) by Loretta Chase
Large Print version
This installment was about Lady Clara Fairfax, a character who has had a visible role since book one. I was curious to read her story and see how she ended up.
I liked the back story of how her and barrister, Oliver Radford, were brought together. I found it interesting and something different from what is usually presented in a historical romance.
However, the lawyer’s personality wasn’t endearing or highly entertaining; I understand why the author created him as he was but I just wasn’t hooked like I was with other installments. When characters from the former books were present, I had more fun reading those passages.
Also, the verbal sparring between Clara and Oliver were okay in my opinion; I wasn’t riveted. I almost didn’t finish this fourth book but did anyways to see how it ended. Two stars.
Well, today is just another Monday. I will be making the much-needed Costco run and then walking the 16-minute intervals program + run for six, Linkin Park songs afterwards. Have a good Monday. Thanks for poppin in. Happy reading to you and TTYS.
