I have had an okay week of reading and this time I blame the global coronavirus outbreak.
My 4-year-old is susceptible to viral croup and wheezing–and I am constantly worried about him falling sick. My neighbors are also panic-buying groceries, hand sanitizers, and masks and that is adding to my anxiety.
I hope things are not too bad in your country. I pray that the coronavirus pandemic ends soon. Stay safe, do not panic, and wash your hands often with soap and water!
I needed a feel-good book in these trying times so I picked up a heartwarming love story set in the south of France, Rendez-Vous in Cannes by Jennifer Bohnet. It was full of laughter and tears, heartache and love, and had some great plot twists. Although it wasn’t difficult to guess what was coming, it did not lessen my enjoyment of the story.
I read this book for RRR’s blog tour and my review will be out on April 10.
I began reading Felix Alexander’s book, “The Secret of Scripture“ a few weeks ago.
I was drawn to the cover of the book, which had ancient scriptures and old monuments on it. I love stories with erudite professors who solve riddles to get to the bottom of a mystery.
This is quite a weighty book with lengthy academic discussions on Biblical history, religion, philosophy, technology, science, morality, politics, and philosophy. It has its fair share of extremism, terrorism, and gruesome murders, too.
I have just finished reading it and I still need some time to collect my thoughts and put them down in a review. However, I rate it 4 stars!
Booktasters helped me get in touch with the author and request a review copy. You can also get in touch with them to get free e-books in exchange for honest reviews. The only prerequisite is that you need a Goodreads account.
They regularly post tweets about the books available for review. Each book category wins you a certain number of points, and the person with the most number of points in a month wins interesting prizes!

I have plenty of blog tour reviews coming up, so I MUST finish reading these next week:
I received an e-copy of The Summoned Ones by Darryl A Woods, and I intend to read this book once I’ve finished with these three. The cover is so intriguing, I cannot wait to get to it.
I don’t want to panic-read because then it becomes a chore and I want to enjoy each and every book.
The Last Noah by David Cuff has been pending since February–I need to read that, too!
I got the book from Sandra Lopez at sandrasbookclub.blogspot.com. I don’t want her to think I’ve taken the book and disappeared!
By the way, she runs a reviewer program wherein the person who submits the most number of reviews in a month wins a $20 Amazon gift card. So, do head over to her blog and request for the books that catch your fancy!

Wish me luck!
