Welcome to another Coffee Chat, in which we share bookish and not so bookish thoughts.  Head on over to Bookishly Boisterous to add your link.


I  missed last week’s post, as the week itself was pretty much a loss in terms of blogging.  Some of you may have read my weekend blog posts about the chaos that took over my life, beginning with a defunct laptop.  Then I was caught up in DMV issues and now have my REAL ID  headed my way.  And the temporary bridge that fell out has been replaced.

  • Meanwhile, I have a new laptop which I’ve named Daphne (replacing Louisa May), and I am slowly adjusting to its particular quirks.  And there are a few of those!  I also had to change almost all of the passwords.  LOL.  Meanwhile, here she is, with a new desktop background that spotlights my six published novels…and my hippie doll.  Check out my website for a close-up view of the books.

  • This is my birthday week, so today I had lunch with a friend…and tomorrow I’ll celebrate with my daughter.  My friend and I had pasta and endless salad bowls at The Olive Garden.


  • Last week, I read In Pieces, by Sally Field (click title for my review), and this week I’ve been watching a family drama featuring Sally:  Brothers & Sisters, on Prime.  I love that show!
  • Currently I’m reading Day of the Dead, the final Frieda Klein novel.
  • I am also excited that I got a NetGalley ARC I had requested:  Daisy Jones and the Six, by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Release Date:  3/5/19.


How is your week shaping up?



  1. Happy you’re adjusting to Daphne. ☺️ I just checked out your review for In Pieces. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    My week has been a little crummy—headaches and stuff. But….I’m trying to get it together. Finishing up a great cozy. Enjoy the rest of your week Laurel-Rain.

  2. A huge happy birthday and so good to hear you are celebrating it in style. I never watched Brothers and Sisters but at some point would like to start it. Its not enough though to want! I need to make some clear goals around my viewing, maybe a 2019 project!
