What I'm Reading Right Now (9)


Quote of the day:
Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
-Mark Twain



My first book for the month of August is by a familiar author -one which I read throughout July. He is a great story teller, certainly one of the best. The book is part two of a seven series chronicle. The first in the chronicle, A Time To Tell by Jeffrey Archer was a wonderful read. I have decided to continue with the series and this second instalment is titled 'The Sins of the Father'.

The story continues from where the first part finishes -the ongoing story of Harry Clifton, and his attempt to escape the unforeseen consequences of a family scandal.

This is another page turner by Archer, and it definitely is an intriguing read so far.


What are you reading at the moment?


Peace and Love.

  1. A page turner is always a good thing, as is when the sequel is good.

  3. Interestingly, right now for fiction I am rereading Mark Twain (Tom Sawyer and Roughing It). For non-fiction, I am reading a "Mark Twain and Orion Clemens: Brothers, Partners, Strangers" and N. T. Wright's "Surprised by Scripture" (I am also teaching a class on Twain's Western Years)

  4. This is indeed a very good series. I just finished the first one and I hope to be starting on this one soon. I just need to get my hands on a copy; perhaps check the local library.

  6. Oh so you continued your ride with Harry Clifton...happy reading.
    And welcome to the fab month of August!

  7. I've just discovered the "Constable Evans" series about a Welsh village policeman. They're gentle - in so far as murder mysteries can be!

  8. I've not read anything by that author. Did they make a movie based on that book?

  9. I love Jeffrey Archer's books :-)

  10. Yesterday, I read a couple of poems by Ezra Pound. I vaguely remember reading Jeffrey Archer's 'Cain and Abel' one time. His own story must be something of a page turner too, if such a book exists.

  11. Sounds interesting....Christine

  12. Great quote! Thanks for sharing the book review. Happy Monday, have a great new week ahead!

    ReplyDelete
  13. "The House At The End of Hope Street"... Magical, whimsical, but with suffering. Of course! How to have an intriguing plot, with only lightness and magical? Nope. Need suffering.

    But still, I know, all will work out, in the end. :-)))))) Even 50 pages, from the end.

    Wising you some whimsey and magic, in your week,
    Tessa

  18. Believe it or not in the past week I have read "To Kill a Mockingbird", and now "Peyton Place. The place where we are staying had these two on a shelf, and I can't remember ever reading these classics.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Series are great, aren't they - as long as you still have something to look forward to :-)
    My current reads are two works of non-fiction: Phoenician History on my kindle, and "Does Anything Eat Wasps?" as a physical book.

  20. This is a new author for me, but it sounds quite interesting. I'm reading American Gods, by Neil Gaiman. It's amazing :)

    1. Hello Ramona, I have finished another Neil Gaiman last weekend and reviewed it on my blog. "American Gods" I have read some years ago and found it amazing, too.

  22. I'm not reading anything at the moment... this author looks good... I'm going to have to look them up. I like that there is a series :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, Jeffrey Archer writes some good page turners. A seven part series sounds great, I love when you can read straight through a series.
    I'm reading an old book by John Creasey, one of the Baron series, and these are real page turners too.

  27. Love it when you find a good series and the next book is out. I'm reading "A Sorceress of His Own" and "The Undying Legion". Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's fun to find a series that draws you in! I'm reading "The Truth" still, sadly I haven't had much opportunity for reading lately.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am familiar with the name of this author but i don't remember ever reading anything by him. I have decided to take part in Austen in August this month and read 7 of her novels....we shall see how far I get.

  30. I've never read anything by Jeffrey Archer, but I DO love a good page turner!

  31. I am reading, "Emotions - Freedom from Anger, Jealousy and Fear", by Osho.
    Have a Great Week!
    Peace :)

  32. I love that quote from Mark Twain. Very wonderful. I see you're continuing on with Jeffrey Archer's work. Isn't he a good writer? I'm catching up with a few Catherine Coulter FBI thrillers that she wrote in 2014. As usual, I'm behind. Hope all is well. Hugs...Ro

  35. I like the cover, and I'm glad it's a good one.
    I prefer non-fiction, and I'm working my way through several bloggers' books now (Missing Link by Brandon Meyers and Bryan Pedas; Profanity Granny by Pat Hatt - can't wait to read that one; Vanessa's Morgan's Avalon...)

    Be well, Blogoratti.

  41. Hello again...it's time that I visited one of my favorite blogs again :)

    I love cottages because I live in one and have another one room cottage that is mine alone that my hubby and son built for me.

    Well, anyway I am just beginning a book that I found at Goodwill...a favorite thrift store of mine where I buy many of my books. The title is "The Magic Cottage" by James Herbert. Some of the reviews are:

    "A spellbinding tale of mystery and happenings."
    -South Wales Evening Post

    "A modern story of horror and magic...will chill your nerves."
    -Guernsey Evening press

    I cannot wait to get started reading...have a great day and happy reading to all~

  42. I've not read anything by him. He has a mixed reputation in the UK, but I don't think that's to do with his writing. My wife says his books are excellent!

  53. At the moment I'm reading GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn. I saw the movie Gone Girl on the plane coming back from UK a couple of weeks ago, but missed so much of it.... due to tiny screen, interruptions, crackly headphones, uncomfortable seat, loud engine noise.... so I decided to read the book. It's quite a page turner!
