November 2015 Book Reviews

I am one of those people that can sit in a busy crowded room (or public transportation) and get so completely absorbed in the book that the rest of the world disappears. I love when I get so into the book that my heart starts beating really fast and I feel like I can’t breathe…

October 2015 Book Reviews

Most people go home and plop down in front of the TV – I read. I read on my commute, I listen to books as I walk around town and while cooking and cleaning, and I read before I go to bed. I usually have at least 3 books going at the same time. To…

Yes, more beach reads this month! It’s summer and reading anything too dramatic just doesn’t seem palatable especially when traveling.

Wow! What a great month of reading. I read twenty books and only seven of them didn’t get 5 stars. The┬áNightingale was our book club book this month and I was amazed but the strength of the two women. I’ve read a lot of books about WWII but I have never read a book the…

February 2015 Book Reviews

Part of the reason I started writing this blog was to share what I have read with someone…anyone… Before the Peace Corps I would read and talk books with my best friends Tim and Tiara. Tim and I worked together and during lunch we would walk and talk about the book we were reading. Tiara…

January 2015 Book Reviews

This is probably the hardest blog I have ever written. My mom died a couple of weeks ago which is a huge part as to why this blog is so late and why I didn’t read as much as I would have liked. She died way too young and I will miss her terribly but…
