I have been crazy busy. Between work, having some sort of social life and going through the final stages of publishing my writer’s group anthology, I barely have time to watch my favorite ratchet television shows! So you know the struggle is real. But, what I always have time for, is reading a good book. Like many writers, I absolutely LOVE to read. I thought it’d be kind of fun to share what I’m currently reading. Now, I must warn you that I’m a little schizo with my reading. I read more than one book at a time. It all depends on my mood. If you see something you like, let’s read it together and discuss it later.

Maggie’s Turn by Deanna Lynn Sletten
This is a great women’s fiction book about a middle-aged wife and mother of two teens finally taking time to do what she wants to do rather than what she has to do. One day she drops her daughter off at school and hits the open road. I enjoy road trip books because there are lots of opportunities for new characters to come in and out. This is a touching book about family ties and dynamics.
It Ain’t Easy Being Jazzy by Quanie Miller
If you need a good laugh you MUST, I repeat, MUST pick up the novel about the crazy adventures of Jasmine T. Peacock. I try not to read this one in public because I’m guaranteed to laugh out load at some point. Jazzy’s cousin is dating her ex-boyfriend and Jazzy is dead set on seeking revenge. Luckily, we get to come along for all of her crazy adventures.
