Happy Friday friends! With work-life getting back into a more normal rhythm, I didn’t read as many books in September as usual. I also changed up genres a little with two romances. The highlight, of course, was the much-anticipated sequel to American Royals, but I also loved the YA fantasy A Darker Shade of Magic.CONTINUE READING
Happy Fall Y’all! Well, not really because it is still in the upper 90’s here, but I am dreaming of fall weather now that it’s September. August was kind of a “meh” month for me, reading-wise, with one really good book & several mediocre ones. Drop me a comment & let me know what you’ve been reading!CONTINUE READING
Whew! It’s already August! I can’t believe that we’re still in partial quarantine, with no end in sight. I feel like we were all pretty optimistic at the beginning, but it’s becoming more of a struggle as time passes without getting back to normal. July was a pretty good month for reading, with some YA, some Fantasy, and of course lots of mystery/thriller. I read 7 books, which seems to be my average during quarantine. Read on to see what I read in July & let me know what you’ve been reading in the comments!CONTINUE READING
I can’t believe that I read 8 books in June! This is probably because the quarantine is on-going & I spent a wonderful weekend in the Arkansas mountains. I had plenty of time to curl up with a book! I just got in several books from the library, so next month’s list may be another long one. This month was a great mix of my traditional thrillers, with a fun satire & some YA thrown in. What have you been reading?CONTINUE READING
What I Read in Quarantine
After pressing pause for a week to allow other voices to be heard, I am back with a round-up of everything that I read during our 2 months of quarantine. Get ready for a long one, because I did a ton of reading while I was in quarantine! There were definitely a few big hits & a few misses. Read on to see what I read & let me know what you’re reading in the comments!CONTINUE READING
Book Reviews: Vol. VIII
It is Thanksgiving week friends & I am so excited to have all of the holiday foods! We were in Baton Rouge for the football game last weekend & it was pretty amazing to see Joe Burrow play. We have a low-key Thanksgiving planned & it’s going to be nice to be at home for the long weekend. I’m hoping to enjoy some family time & do some reading. I haven’t done book reviews since June, but I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone with everything I’ve read since then, so I’ve rounded up some of the best that I’ve found!CONTINUE READING
Book Reviews: Vol. VII
Hello friends! I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! We spent most of the weekend relaxing & I spent a good bit of it it curled up with a book, which you know if my happy place! I’m back today with a roundup of everything I read in June. As usual, it’s heavy on the thriller/mysteries, with a Jodi Piccoult thrown in for a little variety. I read two books by Alafair Burke this month, The Better Sister & The Wife, both were excellent! What are you reading right now?CONTINUE READING
Books Reviews: Vol. VI
Hello friends! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day & enjoyed your long weekend! I’m back today with another long round of book reviews since it’s been 2 months since I’ve done one of these. Today’s group is a mix of thrillers (because you know I can’t stay away from those) & some general fiction. I’m finding it harder & harder to be wowed by mysteries & thrillers lately, it seems like I can’t find one that truly surprises me. This group had some really great historical fiction though, like Lilac Girls & Daisy Jones. As always, I’m looking for recommendations so let me know what you’ve been reading!CONTINUE READING
Book Reviews: Vol. V
I have reading up a storm lately, so this set of reviews is another long one. All in all, this was a much better set of books than my last one! I was also lucky enough to receive two pre-releases, so a big thank you to Lake Union Publishing! (I’ve noted those for reference, &, as always, any opinion is strictly my own.) Finally, if you want to keep up with what I’m currently reading at any time, I added a Goodreads widget to the sidebar! Now on to the books!
Book Reviews: Vol. IV
I’m back on this lovely Wednesday with another round of book reviews! The cold temps make me want to curl up in front of the fire with a good book! This time, I’ve added in a star system to give you an idea of how the books rank compared to each other. There were some really great reads in this group (Children of Blood & Bone) & a few really not-great reads (A Simple Favor, I’m looking at you). I’ve been reading a ton lately (some amazing thrillers!), so I’m already working on the next set of reviews. If you want to keep up with what I’m reading in between these reviews, you can follow me on Goodreads! As always, I’m on the lookout for suggestions, so please leave them in the comments!
