There truly is nothing in this world like curling up with a good book, especially on a cold winter’s night after a long day hard at work.
I even shared a list of books on my Kindle and iBooks accounts that I hadn’t even touched. I also shared I do a lot of blog reading, which does take away from some of my extra time that I would have to read books.
Well, during my blog reading a few bloggers I read daily have shared some of their favorite books and ones they have recently read.
In one of Kate’s recent articles over on Another Clean Slate, she talked about some of her more recent reads.
Kate shared that she had just finished reading Emma’s Secret, which was the sequel to Finding Emma, which is the story of a family with three young girls, who youngest is kidnapped at 3 years old. The book revolves around their lives after and how they went on trying to pick up the pieces, continue to look for her and move past this tragedy and heartache.
I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it or would like to read these books. You can click book images below to check them out on Amazon. By the way, I am an Amazon Affiliate, so if you click my links, I do get a small commission, if you indeed purchase and do need to disclose this here.
I have to be honest and tell you, when I read about the book from Kate’s post, something in me knew I had to read these two books, starting of course with the first in the series, Finding Emma. I am not sure if it was the fact that I am the mother two two small girls myself, but seriously had to read these.
I was lucky enough to have an Amazon gift card that I had won and purchased both books for my Kindle account.
(Slight Spoilers if you want to dread you may want to skip this paragraph). I began to read Finding Emma and couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know why this little girl was kidnapped, as well as how she would be found. It was only less then 2 days and I had finished the book. I went onto the sequel, Emma’s Secret and finished that in less a week in total from when I purchased these two books, because now I was gripped at what secrets actually where existing from the get go to have had little Emma indeed taken from her mother by the aging Dottie, as well as those right there in the very home that Emma was returned to with her biological parents.
I must admit, I feel like these books gave me back my love of reading and have decided to try to read at least one book a week now and will also try to share my reads here with you as I can.
I am just so over the moon happy that I finally got back my reading legs so to speak and don’t want to lose this momentum. It felt great to just veg out reading at night and in my spare time during my holiday weekend, too.
So, now I just have to figure out what is next on my list. I still have a lot of books in my Kindle and iBooks accounts, as well as a few more on my list that I haven’t purchased yet. I am going to decide later today and will probably start the next book tonight hopefully. And I will keep you all posted.
