What are you reading?

I am amazed at authors who don’t read. It was my love of reading that got me hooked on writing. Writing isn’t easy, at least for me. So it’s the reading that makes it all worthwhile.

So where do I go when I escape into a good book?

This month I finished books 3-6 of the Daisy Gumm Majesty books by Alice Duncan and Dead in the Water (book 4, I think) of the Daisy Dalyrumple mysteries by Carola Dunn. They’re both cozies set during the 1920s and deal with the aftermath of World War 1. It’s funny that both heroines have the same names yet they are nothing alike.

On the nonfiction front, I’m reading Doctors in the Great War by Ian Whitehead. This book isn’t what I was expecting (I was looking for how gas victims were treated) but it is interesting, has a ton of references, and I’m learning some interesting things. I don’t know if I’ll be able to use it when I get around to writing the next Love’s Great War book, but you never know.

Also on deck is A Crack in Creation: Gene Editing and the Unthinkable Power to Control Evolution. For those of you who like the Hadean series, this one is for book four of that series but I also have to do more research on nuclear detonations and radiation exposure.

And, lastly, I received the most adorable letter from Better World Books about my order. These are some of my January purchases of books (sadly the hubbinator will know as they are all physical books):
