Just What I Always Wanted by Nancy Roman
I'm not sure where I came across Nancy Roman's blog, Not Quite Old. You can find it in my blog list. I enjoy reading it, she has great humor, and so when I saw that she was publishing her first book a couple of weeks ago, and the Kindle version is very reasonable, I bought it. I did not set my expectations very high, just because it was a first novel, and sometimes the firsts I have read lately haven't been very good. So I have been very pleasantly surprised. I'm about three-quarters of the way through, and I am enjoying it. I think I will finish it tonight.
A World Elsewhere by Sigrid MacRae
Just minutes ago this book arrived via UPS. About a week or so ago, I noticed that Goodreads has a giveaway section for new books. The deadline to enter for this book was just hours away when I entered my name, and within a day or so I received an email that I had won one of the copies. I will be reading it next, so that I can leave a review on the site.
