Right now, what are you reading? Is it a carry-over from last year or have you started something new already this year?

I am working on two books at the moment, one is a carry-over from last year- The Final Gambit by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. It's the final in The Inheritance Series and the others were very good. The second is called The Sweet Taste of Muscadines by Pamela Terry, which I just started last night.

I believe she is from your neck of the woods.
She is! She used to do book-signings localy but she's retiring. Fortunately, I can still drop off a new book at her office and pick it up a few days later, autographed.

One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London - really interesting - here's the blurb:
Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger who has amazing friends, a devoted family, legions of Insta followers--and a massively broken heart. Like the rest of America, Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since when is being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television?

Just when Bea has sworn off dating altogether, she gets an intriguing call: Main Squeeze wants her to be its next star, surrounded by men vying for her affections. Bea agrees, on one condition--under no circumstances will she actually fall in love. She's in this to supercharge her career, subvert harmful anti-fat beauty standards, inspire women across America, and get a free hot air balloon ride. That's it.

But when the cameras start rolling, Bea realizes things are more complicated than she anticipated. She's in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Internet culture wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale.

Since I'm going to Pawhuska, OK in March I had someone recommend that I read Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and Birth of the FBI. It's based on a true story and they also made a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio that will be coming out soon. Seems interesting so far.

Reading "Wish you were here" by Karly Lane. It is Australian and I am really enjoying it. Just ordered 3 more of hers from the library.
