Fresh Pick! The Good Daughter

freshpick150Fun news!  I had an email from Fresh Fiction Friday letting me know that The Good Daughter had been chosen as their Fresh Pick for May 31st.  I am beyond delighted.  If you’d visited Fresh Fiction Friday, you would have seen the cover for The Good Daughter on every page!  Fresh Pick books aren’t based on advertising, but reader feedback, so its really cool that Fresh Fiction readers loved The Good Daughter as much as so many of you.

The Good Daughter by Jane Porter

In case you haven’t read The Good Daughter yet, I’m giving away a signed copy so you can get caught up with my fabulous, passionate Brennan sisters, along with lots of California goodies, too.  Want a chance to win a copy of the book and all the other treats and sweets?  Just tell me what you’re reading now, and/or what book you’re looking forward to reading soon.   That’s it!  It’s a short contest, two days only, with the winner announced sometime during the evening of June 4th so enter now!

And thank you, Fresh Fiction.   🙂  You made my day!

Secondly, the other book I am reading is for 2 of my 3 book clubs and it is “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened”, a memoir by a blogger, by Jenny Lawson. And I am reading the paperback version of that. I try to spead out my books between physical books, books on my kindle app AND books on my Nook–and books I purchase and books I get at the library. The books I purchase and buy in physical form are those by my favorite authors-like you, of course!

    I’m currently reading Jennifer Weiner’s Then Came You. It’s a brain worker since every chapter is in a different character’s storyline. I’m expecting them to all intertwine at some point!

  77. I am currently listening to Dan Brown’s “Inferno” and I just finished reading “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”. Debating what I should read next.

  78. I just adopted a kitten and am a little embarrassed to admit that all I have been reading is books about cats and kittens. I need to get back to regular reading!
