Today I'm working with @kimberlykincaidauthor and @inkstagramtours to share Crossing Hope with you! This is the 4th book in the Cross Creek series and is live now. The synopsis is below, make sure you grab a copy!
Marley Rallston would rather be anywhere other than too-small-for-a-map-dot Millhaven, Virginia. But thanks to a heap of debt, what was supposed to be a quick trip to fulfill her mother’s dying wish has turned into an extended stay with the family she never knew she had and the father who never wanted her. To top it off, now she’s being forced to do community service with the town’s biggest bad boy, when all she wants to do is make enough cash to get out of Dodge? Life can’t get much worse.
The only thing Greyson Whittaker cares about is his family’s farm. He’ll do anything to keep Whittaker Hollow in the black, including live up to his rough, tough reputation by running the place by himself, no matter the cost. Mandatory community service with the daughter of their biggest rival is the last thing he wants or needs. But the more time Greyson and burns, and the more the unlikely pair begins to realize that forbidden fruit just might taste the sweetest…
My new book haul!
I love going though the used bookstores in my town with a coffee in hand. A new rule for book browsing is that if a book strikes my fancy, I won't check the rating on Goodreads. I want to start finding new favourites based on my own opinion rather than be influenced by the masses. It's a hard rule to stick to, but I find some real gems that way!
Is there any book you love that everyone else doesn't?
“The word “bollocks” is one of the most beautiful and flexible in the English language. It can be used to express emotional states ranging from ecstatic surprise to weary resignation in the face of inevitable disaster.” -
Currently on a 3-4 hour drive up north and all I can think is “bollocks, my back hurts and I need a coffee” ☕️ -
Most cars are not built for tall people sigh. Maybe there should be a discount for tall people on range rovers. 10% off every inch over 6ft? That’s an idea I can get behind. 👌
Thanks NetGalley for an e-copy of this fun read. This is the first time I’ve read a science fiction book of the cyborgs, AI, aliens, and space travel sort. Daisy’s Run has an uncannily clever and driven protagonist at its centre and thrives on ambiguity, with a flood revelations towards its conclusion. It’s probably my favourite indie book (and I’ve read quite a few this year). My only protest about her characterisation is her irrational prejudice against AI and cyborgs, but it’s more or less this quality that helps drive the plot. Full review is up on my blog [link in bio]
A wiecie czego jest dzisiaj rocznica? 40 lat temu Wanda Rutkiewicz jako pierwsza osoba z Polski i z Europy stanela na szczycie Mount Everest 🏔 z tej okazji dzisiaj chciałabym przedstawić jej biografie Anny Kamińskiej, która swoją drogą pisze tylko o naprawde fajnych babkach!
Everest był najbardziej spektakularnym sukcesem Wandy Rutkiewicz, zwłaszcza, że szczyt zdobyła jako pierwsza polka- przed jakimkolwiek polakiem, co w tak branży tak zdominowanej przez mężczyzn jak himalaizm jest wyczynem w samym w sobie. Z biografii jednak możemy naprawdę poznać Wandę, jej sielskie dzieciństwo, trudne sytuacje oraz tragedie rodzinne oraz nieudane małżeństwa. Książka pełna jest wywiadów, zdjęć, wspomnień pokazujących Wandę Rutkiewicz taką, jaka była naprawdę ze wszystkimi wadami oraz zaletami- kobietą z krwi i kości.
