Booking Through Thursday - HolidayI

Here's today's BTT question:

It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so let’s keep today’s question simple–What are you reading? Anything special? Any particularly juicy summer reading?

It's been a pretty tough week here. My mom is still at hospice. It's a matter of hours or days right now. With that in mind, I have been reading because it keeps my mind occupied, but I don't have a lot of focus so it's lightweight stuff for me right now. I just finished Fearless Fourteen which is a fun summer read.

I actually sorted through my TBR pile yesterday and put a bunch of books on BookMooch because it was so overwhelming. I'm working on a new romantic/inspirational novel set in Amish country. It's not very taxing so perfect for me right now.

I'd love suggestions for quick reads, lots of humor, and not very grim or gory.

Sorry to hear about your mom; I lost my mother several years ago. It's a hard time. I'll pray for you.
I hope the reading gives you a moment or two of escape.

Still with you and your mom in prayer.

I'm about to finish "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor. It's the second book after "An Irish Country Doctor". Good light summer fare. No blarney!
