Coffee and Conversation

Over the past few days I've discovered two favorite authors of mine have announced some exciting news.

 Jill Shalvis, author of the Lucky Harbor novels I love so much, announced on her website this week that she has been contracted to write another Lucky Harbor Trilogy. There aren't a lot of details yet, but she posted a little blurb about the characters. Check out Jill's website for the details. Something to look forward to for next summer?

Diana Gabaldon, beloved author of mine and brilliant mind behind the Outlander series, has put up short catalog copy of Written in my own Heart's Blood, Book Eight in the series, set to be released sometime next year (fingers crossed). You can check out her website or her Facebook page for the blurb.

In other news, I'm getting over my reading slump. First with The Book Thief, which was just an amazing book, I am still thinking about it. Now, I am finally reading Game of Thrones. I'll admit, I was skeptical about this one and there were a few parts that started to drag, but overall I am really loving it. I only have about a hundred pages to go and I can't wait to see what happens.

 I'm always looking for recommendations, so if you have a great book you think I should try, let me know! Happy Reading!


  1. I've heard mixed review about 'The Book Thief', but I think I've finally seen enough positive feedback that I'll give it a try.

    If you haven't read 'Across the Universe' yet, you should give it a go! It was a very interesting read.

  2. Nickie,

    I has mixed feelings before reading as well but I'm glad I did, it was a really great read.

    I haven't read that one but I will check it out, thanks for the recommendation!
