So this is my first check-in for the Thankfully Reading Weekend and I’ve been a little slack about updating. Oops..Sorry. I finished A Not So Model Home on Thursday while riding in the car to my aunt’s to have Thanksgiving lunch. I started reading A Plague of Lies that afternoon on the way back, and I’m still reading that. I haven’t been feeling all that well, so I’ve been doing more sleeping than reading. It sucks, but the story is starting to pick up now, so I have a feeling, I will be doing some more reading today and tomorrow. What about you guys? Reading anything good? I’m curious to see what you think about what you are reading…
A question I was asked earlier today was what books I am thankful for reading this year? That’s a really good question. I tend to have a lot of favorite books and can’t pick just a few. Here are some of the books that I really enjoyed this year and am thankful that I got to read…
I really enjoyed The Secret Keeper this year and it was my first Kate Morton book. I can’t wait to read the others. I really enjoyed her writing style and the story that sucks you in right at the beginning.
Outlander was by far one of the best books I’ve read this year. Even though right now I’m irritated with the way the series is headed, this one is still a wonderful read.
I love Ken Follett and Fall of Giants was a fantastic read about WWI. I couldn’t put this one down and I really need to get my hands on Winter of the World (the next in the series). Maybe I can get it with the gift cards I will get for Christmas?
This was the latest in the Manor House Mystery series by Julie Hyzy. This series is by far one of my favorite cozy mystery series. I’m an avid fan of this series for life.
This book was like heaven for a lover of historical mysteries and serial killers. A fantastic read that I cannot recommend enough. I have the next one A Study in Revenge to read on my Kindle as the publisher allowed me to get a review copy. Cannot wait to read it..
So that’s some of of the books I’m thankful I got to read so far this year. Which books are you thankful for this year?

I've read the Outlander series and thoroughly enjoyed it, but have not picked up the last book yet (An Echo in the Bone, #7 in the series). I think the reason why is it's just a series that goes on for waaaay too long and I've lost interest in it. (I think it's going to follow Claire and Jaime all the way to their doddering old age.) And I just saw that she's releasing #8 maybe in 2013! Maybe one of these days I'll start the series over again and get up to #7, then again, maybe not, lol. But, don't let this deter you from reading most, if not all of the books in the series, because they are ones that I just flew through (you know, the ones that are just too good to put down!)
I am so glad that you guys are here..I love all of you and it amazes me how much we have in common. I enjoyed the series up until the last book I read, 'Voyager', but I needed a break. They are such big books and it can be overwhelming as a reader sometimes. I also saw another one was being released in the series next year. There comes a point when a series just needs to end and it might be time for this one to come to an end. I'm not sure I want to read about Jamie and Claire in their old age. Kimberlee
