Hello! I've been on a little break from crafting here lately... I'm trying to rest and recover from bronchitis. Ugh! But I did get some reading done in May and wanted to share my latest books with you. I read on a Kindle - do you prefer actual books or an electronic reading device? I really like actual books, but you can't beat being able to browse and download books immediately. I also like that buying books on my Kindle means I don't have to find a place on a bookshelf for the book.

Wally Lamb is one of my favorite authors, so We Are Water satisfies book #7 on my list. It's my favorite kind of book - it goes deep into character development with the main characters (a family with 3 adult children). There are some back stories complicated woven within the novel and I love reading about why a person acts the way they do. I really enjoy reading books where the characters are connected in unlikely ways. Two thumbs up!
I heard about The Paper Magician from a friend. When I saw it on Amazon Unlimited and realized I could read it for free, I downloaded it immediately. It's about a girl that begins an apprenticeship with a magician that uses paper - she becomes a Folder. It was a quick read and there are others in a series - I may read more. I'm using it for book #13 (a book with a female heroine).
I'm using We Are Called To Rise for book #16. It's another one of those books that has some crazy connections between characters. Each chapter is told from a different person's voice and that's one of my favorite writing styles as well. I read this one in a couple of days
