I love Fridays but not as much as Saturdays because the weekend is my cue to sit back, drink lots of tea and read a book or two.
This weekend, it’s all about romance and laid back reading, so I’ve got my sights on three books:
It’s about shifters, science and romance. I love reading about shifters and romance- well, a bit of science just might make me subscribe too.
Irène, Maddalena, Jonathan, and Marcello are united by their desire to go beyond appearances, beyond the traditional rules that reduce life to the simple and dry quest for survival.
Irène, the star of the story, discovers a new way of life thanks to her encounter with Maddalena, a fairytale writer, who becomes a sort of spiritual guide for her.
It will be Maddalena who teaches her the importance of seeing the world through glasses with colored lenses and who teaches her the importance of self-observation in achieving greater awareness and presence.
I want to read it because the description says the story is set in the Italian hills!
When the top American diplomat in Tokyo, Bernard Mattson, is killed, he leaves more than a lifetime of successful Japan-American negotiations. He leaves a missing manuscript, boxes of research, a lost keynote speech and a tangled web of relations.
When his alluring daughter, Jamie, returns from America wanting answers, finding only threats, Detective Hiroshi Shimizu is dragged from the safe confines of his office into the street-level realities of Pacific Rim politics.
With help from ex-sumo wrestler Sakaguchi, Hiroshi searches for the killer from back alley bars to government offices, through anti-nuke protests to military conspiracies. When two more bodies turn up, Hiroshi must choose between desire and duty, violence or procedure, before the killer silences his next victim.
I want to read this because:
- I love the cover, it’s just historically vicious
- It’s a Tokyo mystery
There you have it, my top three books to cozy up to this weekend. What are you reading?
