I Will Be Gone for Two Weeks, Plus My Weekend Reading Pile 5/25-27/12

Lady Anne's Quest

Hello, today I am here to tell you that I am going to have very limited internet access these next two weeks, I will be grateful to have internet for one hour per week down at the library while I am gone visiting family. One thing that I can promise, though is pictures...when I get back that is! I do have some posts, tours, and reviews scheduled to post while I am gone, so it will almost be like I'm still here. ;) But anyhow, I just thought I'd give you all a heads up about that.

Now onwards to the books!

I just started Lady Anne's Quest last night, and have started to re-familiarize myself with all of the characters. I am very interested to see how this will turn out!

Here's the blurb:

Lady Anne Stone believes her prayers are answered and she’s at last found her long lost uncle. Unwilling to let her meet him on her own, Daniel Adams accompanies her to her uncle’s ranch. But instead of answers, Anne is left with more questions. Both Dan and Anne are convinced the man introduced as her uncle is an imposter and decide to continue the search for the new Earl of Stoneford.

But now the swindler is on their trail, hoping to steal Uncle David’s inheritance. Dan has his hands full trying to protect Anne, but he finds he must guard his heart just as carefully. Even though he’s good at keeping her safe, he knows he’ll never convince Anne to become a farmer’s wife in Oregon when she has her sights set on returning to her home in England. But as Anne’s quest becomes even more difficult — and dangerous — Anne begins to see Dan differently. Will she soon be envisioning a new life in America?

The Ride of Her LifeThe other book I am starting up, is Lorna Seilstad's The Ride of Her Life. I am very excited to give this one a go :)

Here's the blurb:

The only man pragmatic Lilly Hart needs in her life is a six year old. Widowed two years ago, Lilly leaves the shelter of her intrusive in-laws' home to stand on her own and provide for her young son by working for the summer as a cook at Lake Manawa. However, her in-laws find that life utterly unsuitable for their grandson, and when a row ensues, a handsome stranger--who designs roller coasters, of all things--intercedes on her behalf. Still, Lilly is not about to get involved with any man, especially this cocky (though charismatic) gentleman. Little does she know she is about to begin the ride of her life.Filled with delightful characters and the romance of summer, The Ride of Her Life is another supremely entertaining story from the witty Lorna Seilstad. Readers will laugh out loud and sigh contentedly as they spend the summer of 1906 in Lake Manawa.

Well  that's a glimpse of what I'm reading. What are you reading this weekend?



  1. I hope you have a great time visiting your family! :) I'm also reading The Ride of Her Life - it started out kind of slow, but it's filled with Seilstad's trademark fun/quirky situations. I'm looking forward to finishing it *hopefully* today. :)

    I'm also planning on starting The Secret Keeper and maybe Submerged this weekend - we'll see if any books come in the mail. ;) And there are plenty of other books to choose from - so much to read, so little time!

    Have a great weekend! :)


  2. I'm going away for a week to visit family as well!
    This weekend I'm planning to read Interrupted by Rachel Coker and Reckless Heart by Amy Clipston. :) Have a great trip!


I love to hear from you!
