My Weekly Bookishness ~ 8/7/20

All things bookish!

What I Read:

The review will be up soon!


What I'm Reading:


Lord Morley's life will change forever when he wins a game of cards and a family of sisters to go along with it.

Miss Standish in none too pleased to have become the responsibility of yet another Lord, even if he is full of charm and goodness. Her responsibilities are to her sisters first.

With the repairs on the castle moving forward nicely and concerted efforts in a season in Bath made to find suitors for them all, Miss Standish and Lord Morley must determine where duty stops and matters of the heart take over.

First Lines:

Morley stared at his best friend, waiting for the man to look up from his cards.  Gerald was losing terribly.

56%/Page 56

June hadn't considered marriage to be much more than a business arrangement, one she hoped her heart would be engaged in.


What I'll (Probably) Read Next:

She was hiding from her past…
When a local woman goes missing and Sheriff Blake Jenkins delivers her blood sample to DNA expert Emory Steele for analysis, Blake discovers Emory is a dead ringer for the missing woman. Blake’s gut says the woman is related to Emory. But Emory rejects the notion, requiring a DNA test before she’ll concede that she does indeed have a twin sister she never knew about.

Now she’ll do anything to see it come to light.
Emory joins Blake in a search for her missing sister, but when an attempt is made to abduct Emory as well, they begin to think the abduction is related to Emory’s birth parents. Blake vows to keep her under his watch until they discover what this maniac is looking for and bring him to justice. But Emory balks at him wanting to keep her under constant surveillance as she’s struggling to come to grips with a former brutal attack, and she wants nothing to do with a man who might want to get close to her. When it becomes clear that Blake is the only one who can keep her safe, will she let him get close enough to do so?


Book Haul:

Nothing new this week...


Book Blogger Hop:

Q.  Do you read books by diverse authors or books with diverse characters (such as LGBT, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, etc)? If yes, do you have any book recommendations? Do you visit indie and/or used bookstores? Also, have you ever worked in any? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

A.  I tend to read books of different genres but most are within the Christian/Clean categories.  I used to read mainstream on a daily basis but throughout the years I've weaned myself of the addiction.  Now I tend to read wholesome books that I don't have to be ashamed of if my mom would catch me reading it!   And I'm 42!  lol


Bookishly Yours,


Linking up to:


  1. The book sounds interesting! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. I loved The Jane Austen Book Club. Interesting lines in The Earl's Winning Wager. Enjoy your upcoming books, and here are my Friday Excerpts: “THE END OF HER”

  3. Happy Friday!

    I've heard really great things about both of these, and I hope you ended up enjoying them.

    On my blog this week, I'm sharing the first lines from Love and a Little White Lie by Tammy L Gray, and it's honestly one of my favorite books I've read this year.

    "I've face planted myself into rock bottom. Well, maybe a hammock above rock bottom-one my aunt Doreen graciously set out for me when I found myself abandoned and broke."

    I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  4. Sounds like a good read!! Happy weekend, the linky is live!

  5. I am excited to know about The Jane Austen Book Club! Thanks for sharing them all!
    Here's my Friday Post

  6. This one seems interesting. Enjoy your current read!

  7. My first lines are from MINUTES TO DIE by Susan Sleeman:
    Chapter 1
    Exposed. Kiley felt exposed. Standing there. In the dark. Waiting. Waiting.

  8. The Jane Austen Book Club sounds amusing. I've always dreamed of book clubs full of friends :) Thanks for sharing!

  9. Your book line up all sound good!

    I got BBOF posted late, but it is up now if you want to visit and link your post.

  10. I've changed my reading habits, too. I've decided that books with explicit sex get the heave-ho. I do not need that nonsense in my brain. <a href=">I am highlighting a book by a favorite author whom I'm sure you like his books, too</a>

  11. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green. "When Charlotte and Alice told their mother they were taking the omnibus down Broadway, they weren't lying. They just didn't tell her where they would be getting off."

  12. Happy Friday!!

    My line is from A Nurse for Jacob by Caryl Macadoo ""Lydia admired the two-story building from the corner of Gaienne and Old Levee Streets, strode up the walk, then stopped at the front of the Touro Infirmary and adjusted her cap."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  13. Happy Friday! 🙂
    I'm currently reading A Life Once Dreamed by Rachel Fordham. I'm on chapter seven so I'll share the first line from there:
    "Sam Landon made his way over to the schoolhouse, toolbox in one hand, lunch tin in the other."
    I hope you have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

  14. One of these days I'm going to try The Jane Austen Book Club. Thanks for sharing this week.

  15. Ha, I had a laugh at your comment about books you wouldn’t be ashamed to be caught with, my mum would hate some of the books I read! Saying that I remember her when I was younger have some decidedly unsavoury books on the shelf!

    Have a lovely week!

  16. I remember liking The Jane Austen Book Club. It's perfect for Austen in August which seems to be hosted this year at Goodreads.

    I tend to read lots of books with Hispanic characters. It's part of my culture and there just aren't enough reflections of it.

  17. The Jane Austen Book Club has been very popular.

    Wishing you a great reading week

  18. Nice looking books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  19. Hey, I'm 47 and agree that as adults we've earned the right to read anything we want! ;-)
