After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Book Release: Love to the Women by Heather Trefethen

I'm thrilled to announce my cousin, Heather Trefethen's debut novel, Love to the Women, is now available on Amazon! I'm so proud of her for taking the plunge and making her novel available to the public. I've read it and I love it! I broke my one rule for reading books by friends or family, because I never want to tell somebody close to me on the chance that I don't like their book. BUT, I can say that Heather's book is just great. She's written a funny, touching story of family and how important family can be when you need them.

Here's the description:
Thematically reminiscent of Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle”, Love to the Women tells the story of senior architect Steve Sheridan who, in an effort to provide for his family, ends up nearly losing them.

Everything always seemed perfect to Steve, right down to his girls’ matching outfits and his wife’s basic black dress. Upon retirement, however, his dreamlike image quickly becomes a nightmare as Donna, his eldest, embarks on one pre-wedding rampage after another while her sisters, Ruth and Penny, wage their own separate battles. Even Jayne, his wife, seems a stranger. In a quiet moment of epiphany, Steve painfully realizes that although he’d always held faithfully onto his love for his women, his new purpose has to be to regain their love for him.

Filled with a variety of rich characters that leaves you smiling and laughing, caring and crying, Love to the Women promises not to disappoint as Steve and the Sheridan women all learn what it truly means to provide.

If you'd like to check it out, it's available as both a paperback edition and a Kindle version and you can click the link below to go right to Amazon and check it out.

Happy reading!
