I thought I’d share what’s taking space on my Kindle these days… I mostly read and watch movies on it, and it’s a shiny new Kindle Fire HDX that I got for Christmas. (Thanks, brother!)
The Countess Conspiracy by Courtney Milan
Right now, I’m knee deep in the most recent book from Courtney Milan’s Brothers Sinister series, THE COUNTESS CONSPIRACY. I have loved every book in this series, and I will say that when I started this last book —Sebastian and Violet’s book—the first chapter blew me away. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention, but I didn’t expect the twist. (Of course, I didn’t read the back copy blurb before I bought the book either.) But I’m almost finished and seriously loving it.
I found this book through Bookbub (a great site for any reader to visit… free and low priced quality books daily.)
The blurb from Amazon:
Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she’s had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be her personal maid on the Titanic. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men—a kind sailor and an enigmatic Chicago businessman—who offer differing views of what lies ahead for her in America. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes, and amidst the chaos, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat.
The survivors are rescued and taken to New York, but when rumors begin to circulate about the choices they made, Tess is forced to confront a serious question. Did Lady Duff Gordon save herself at the expense of others? Torn between loyalty to Lucile and her growing suspicion that the media’s charges might be true, Tess must decide whether to stay quiet and keep her fiery mentor’s good will or face what might be true and forever change her future.
I can’t wait to read this book. I’m fascinated by the Titanic era—the times, the clothes, so much about that era is interesting to me. (A book setting someday, definitely….)
I also like to watch TV and movies. I’ll have my Kindle up in the morning while I’m getting ready, with a show on in the background. Or sometimes during my lunch break… anyway, my morning show lately has been Dollhouse, a short-lived series by Joss Whedon. I loved this show when it was on and watch the reruns on Netflix often.
What about you? What’s on your entertainment list these days?
