Books, books and yes! even MORE books!

Oh my goodness I am just GUSHING with book excitement! First off, let me tell you what's coming in the mail. Today I visited the fine folks at Amazon.com and just FILLED my cart with lots of goodies. Then I proceeded to check out. Then I proceeded to delete all but 2 purchases, as shipping and handling prices are just CrAzY! So, what were the little happies that remained in my cart? Well, the first one I ordered was Wounded by sweet friend Claudia Mair Burney. Ms. Burney just plain rocks. I've bragged on her writing before, and I'm certain to be bragging some more after I've read Wounded. The next little happy I ordered was The Church Ladies, by another sweet friend, Lisa I'm Awesome Samson.. I don't know when this book was released....it was awhile back though. I'm sort of working my way backwards through her books. Anyway, the last book I read by Lisa Samson was Embrace Me, and it made me literally sit up in bed and say...rather loudly.."OH MY GOSH!!! How does she (Ms.Samson) do that??? I had no idea!!"

"No idea about what??" "What did she do?" "What's so amazing?"

Well, let me just give you a clue. She's tricky.

If you want to know more, well, read the book. Not my copy though, because I loaned it to my sweet friend Patti. Anyway, as with Ms. Burney, I have bragged on Lisa Samson's books numerous times on my blog, so get ready for another one after I read The Church Ladies.

So I've got 2 little lovelies heading my way...aren't you excited for me?

But wait, there's MORE!!!! My mom tells me that Ms. Julia is BAAAAACCCKKK!!!! Well, she will be in April, anway. It's Ms. Julia Delivers (by Ann B. Ross) and I'm so sure she will. I love Ms. Julia. I love that she says "I declare!" just like my mother-in-law.

AND...as if that's not enough...guess what March brings??? Oh, don't guess, let me tell you. March brings Jazz, and I don't mean the music! Yes, yes YES!!!!Oh, joy of all joys, March brings the next book in the Amanda Bell Brown series. That's not too far away, folks. And can you say, "pre-order?" I can, and I did! And so yes, I'm pretty much doing the Mair dance.

And while I wait, I will continue to fill my many free hours minutes with Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austin and Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I'll let you know how they are when I'm finished. In case you're wondering.

Hi! I just wanted to say that I too read Lisa Samson's book "Embrace Me" and was quite amazed! Wow! That is really all you can say to people until they read it themselves. It was unlike any other book I have ever read before. She is incredible. And now I look forward to reading other books of hers as well! Have a great day and enjoy your books!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll come back. If you're ever looking for a new author, try Claudia Mair Burney! I LOVE HER...start with Murder, Mayhem and a Fine Man.

I am always looking for new authors. My best friend Lucie is also following your blog, and we have a book club that we started called the Chick Lit Book Club. We have had so much fun. We have book reviewers who read and review books and then we randomly select the next Book of the Month-so we love finding new and wonderful authors-so I will read that book and share it with our group. Thank you so much!
