Beyond the Call

There’s a little coffee shop in Waco called Bru.  It’s located in an old elevator, all brass and crimson and Deco, just to the side of a marble lobby in the Praetorian building.  The setting is amazing, and the coffee is the best I’ve ever had.  But, I keep going back because one of the girls who works there is delightful.  We talk about books and writing and coffee, and she always asks me what to read.  I was reading this book when I realized that World War II seems to be my 2017 theme.  I told her I needed to shift topics, and she told not to apologize for reading what I want.  So I won’t.

Trixie Beldon: The Mystery Off Glen Road

I read this in preparation for NaNoWriMo.  I originally thought about writing a Young Adult mystery, and wanted to do some research into the genre.  I loved Trixie as a kid.  I may have loved Trixie more than I loved Nancy Drew, and that’s saying a lot.  

Gold

I recently had a mini-rant about buying books from the bargain section of Barnes & Noble.  In the interest of fairness, I need to take that back.  I read three bargain books in a row that were quite good, and this was one of them.  In fact, I’d even say that Gold broke my streak of choosing bad fiction books.  Thank goodness.
