I am pleased to be a blog hostess for A Painter in Penang –Penang Series, Book 3, by Clare Flynn–through The Coffee Pot Book Club. Here are some details about the book and the author, and following will be my review.

This month I had planned to read a few Christmas-themed books. I loved both of these and wanted to share my thoughts with you.

I have had All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr on my “to be read” book shelf for almost a year. I finally finished this one up last month and enjoyed it.

I’ve stayed up reading the last few nights until 11:00, trying to make significant progress on All the Light We Cannot See. It has around 550 pages, a big commitment, but it has been on my list of books to read for some time.

Today I am grateful for all those who have served in the armed forces. To help celebrate, today I am featuring a novel set around the time of The Great War, Broken Lines, by author Kelsey Gietl.

In the late 1880’s, determined Elizabeth Cochrane fights for a job with a top newspaper, the New York World, but little does she know the depths she will end up plunging into.

Told in a split timeline, The Woman in the Green Dress, weaves an enchanting tale of Fleur, a young woman who inherits her deceased wartime husband’s estate and properties in Australia just after WWI and Della, master of the unconventional craft of taxidermy, who works along with her aunt to keep their family’s shop afloat in the 1850’s.

I’m very happy to host The Queen’s Devil on my blog today as a part of the book tour with The Coffee Pot Book Club. Following is a bit about the book and the author, Paul Walker. You’ll find my review toward the bottom.

Told in a split timeline, The Butterfly and the Violin paints the stories of two women, separated by many decades.

Based on true stories and told in a split timeline, The Girl Who Came Home is a poignant drama of things both lost and found.
