What I'm Reading and my Book Club Books

After having about a week of nothing new to read, I went through my Kindle and find a book that I had gotten awhile ago and never read.

 "Distant Echoes" is the first book in the Aloha Reef Series and it was a pretty good book.  It is a mystery/suspense book but it also has good undertones of family and friendship.  It's a good enough read that I picked up book 2 to keep reading about the characters.
 So, "Black Sands" is the next book I'm starting.  (Book 2 in the Aloha Series)
 This is still one of my favorite series I've read this year - The Eagle Harbor Series.  I didn't realize I had purchased this back in the middle of July until I went out to Amazon to buy it!!  I was so mad at myself for forgetting HA!  It was just as good as the others in the series with a great story of reconciliation and friendship.  There is actually another book in the series that is suppose to come out sometime this year.

I'm also part of several different book clubs that are all gearing up to start new books in the next week or so.  The books below are all books that are on my "shelf" to read as part of the book clubs.
 A group of about 4-5 friends of mine get together once a month and enjoy coffee at Bigby while we discuss whatever book we picked to read.  Really, we do discuss the book but more important we laugh and chit chat hours away while we enjoy our coffee.  For September we are reading "A Man called Ove".  I know nothing about it so I'm excited to see what it is about.
 My Daily Bread (used to be known as Radio Bible Class) is starting its first Facebook book club with this book call "Cling".  Several ladies at my church work there so they posted about this on our ladies facebook page.  I'm kind of curious to see how it goes since there are like a million members.  Sometimes when groups get that big, it is hard to have any discussion.
 This book goes along with Proverbs 31 Ministries and their book study that begins in September.  I've attempted to do book studies like this before and usually fail HA!  But, remember those "changes" I talked about in our daily schedule?  I'm hoping to be a little more dedicated to this study.
Finally, Baker Book House as a Blog Book Club - really it seems more like the author of the blog recommends a good to read and it doesn't go beyond that but it is fairly new so it might change.  Anyway, I think the blog is a great way to find new reads even if all I do is ready them!
