Thinking Out Loud Thursday - June 7, 2018

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  Here we are again knocking on the door of the weekend and I, for one, am getting pretty excited.  Aren't weekends just the best!  Especially in the summer.

We are in the midst of enhancing our patio just a bit with some lighting and I'm looking forward to sitting outside after the sun goes down and doing some reading.  I'm picturing hanging out by the fire pit, a cool breeze blowing and being engulfed in an awesome read.  That's one of the beauties of reading on a Kindle - you don't need a lot of light.

Are you a Amazon Prime member?  If not - WHAT?!?!  Click HERE for your free 30-day trial.  (You're going to love it!)  If you are, have you been getting your free book every month?  This month I choose The Things We Don't Say.  Loving it!

Here's what Amazon says about it, "Nearly sixty years ago, renowned London artist Patrick Adams painted his most famous work: a portrait of his beloved Emma Temple, a fellow bohemian with whom he shared his life. Years after Patrick’s death, ninety-year-old Emma still has the painting hanging over her bed at their country home as a testament to their love.

To Emma’s granddaughter, Laura, the portrait is also a symbol of so much to come. The masterpiece is serving as collateral to pay Laura’s tuition at a prestigious music school. Then the impossible happens when an appraiser claims the painting is a fraud. For Laura, the accusation jeopardizes her future. For Emma, it casts doubt on everything she believed about her relationship with Patrick. Laura is determined to prove that Patrick did indeed paint the portrait. Both her grandmother’s and Patrick’s legacies are worth fighting for.

As the stories of two women entwine, it’s time for Emma to summon up the past—even at the risk of revealing its unspoken secrets."

I also joined an online book club and am looking forward to heading straight into the book selection of the month as soon as the last page of The Things We Don't Say is finished.  We're reading The Wife Between Us.  

The Wife Between Us: A Novel by [Hendricks, Greer, Pekkanen, Sarah]

I've heard great things about this thriller, so I can't wait to dig in.  I'm also very excited about being in a book club.  Talking about a book with others who have read it is something I just love.

I'm also adding a series to my Kindle.   Have any of your read The Cabots series by Jamie Beck?  It's a three book series about family, friendship and starting over.  The grand total of all three books right now is $9.47.  How can you beat that!

What's on your reading list for the summer?  Let me know if you've read something awesome lately.

So that's what I'm thinking about out about today.  What's on your mind?  Link up and share!

Enjoy more Thoughts for Thursday at:


  1. That looks like a great series! We just got home from vacation and I brought my Kindle with me. I had lots of Kindle First free books that I had not gotten around to reading. I read The Thinnest Air in just under 24 hours; it was fantastic! I also finished up Match Making for Beginners and began reading The Halo Effect and In Farleigh Field. So fat they sound pretty great too.

  2. Oh, I do love my Kindle. I have a Kindle Paperwhite so it lights up enough that I can read in the dark and it's fantastic. :) Yay for joining an online book club. I used to be in one and it was great - I do a YA for Adults book club at my local library every month right now and it's always a lot of fun talking books, etc.


  3. I've been wanting to read "The Wife Between us" forever!!! =)

    Have a great day!!! Melanie || Toots + Dill Blog

  4. These all sound like great reads! I'm charging my Kindle for my trip tonight and am looking for some reads to download so I might have to check some of these out!

  5. Just finished the wife between's an inteeintere read! I started the cabot series so I need to continue on. I'd love to see your outside space when finished, we are thinking of ideas for ours too!

  6. Amazon Prime is the best investment I've made recently, and I love the free monthly first reads! I let my friend choose this month (I'm trying to get her more into reading) and she chose Takeoff by Joseph Reid, but this one sounds really good too! The Wife Between Us is on my list too... just not enough hours to read more!

  7. The Things We Don't Say sounds like a good read!

  8. I have had Amazon Prime since 2010 best investment that I ever made.
