It's Monday! What Are You Reading #6

From Sheila

This is a great weekly event where everyone can keep track of the books finished last week & the books planning to read this week!

What I plan on reading this week
I'm challenging myself to stay away from series romance this week. I want to read The Wednesday Letters which I picked up at Goodwill yesterday as well as a few historicals I found in that box, there was an older Julie Garwood that I hadn't read and I do love her books. My problem is that Harlequin novels are my crack. I devour them like candy. Mind you the ones from the 80s and older are kind of stale crack, but still its nice light, fun reading. The only problem is I keep buying more books.

For those of you interested, here's a bit more about The Wednesday Letters

Jack and Laurel Cooper are two hardworking, loving Christian pillars of the community who die in each other's arms one night in the bed-and-breakfast that they own and operate. The event calls their three grown children home for the funeral, including their youngest son, a fugitive from the law who must face an outstanding warrant for his arrest and confront his one true love, now engaged to another man. As events unfold around the funeral, the three children discover a treasure trove of family history in the form of Wednesday letters-notes that Jack wrote to his wife every single week of their married lives. As they read, the children brush across the fabric of a devoted marriage that survived a devastating event kept secret all these years. It's a lovely story: heartening, wholesome, humorous, suspenseful and redemptive. It resonates with the true meaning of family and the life-healing power of forgiveness all wrapped up in a satisfying ending.
