February 2014 Book Reviews

As you have noticed I sometimes get into trends during the month and this month the trend was Historical Fiction…and Oprah’s Book Club books. I have read a few OBC books but I was never a religious follower but after reading two thing month, I will keep them on my radar. As I have mentioned…

January 2014 Book Reviews

January was a pretty random month.  I meant to only read my favorites but I ended up all over the place.  Plus I got sick and didn’t have a lot of energy to read. I am now working full time and that means I have time to read while on public transportation.  I actually got…

2013 Top 25

I didn’t start this blog until the middle of this year but luckily I have been tracking the books I read on Goodreads.  Here are my Top 25 books of 2013.  How do I determine the Top25? Well in this case it was easy…all the books I gave 5 stars to. The books below are…

December Book Reviews

  December started with my favorite author and other mysteries and ended with beach reads because I was traveling for the holidays.  Over the year I have often mentioned if a book was a good “beach read”.  For me a beach read is a fun, fast read that makes me smile and occasionally even laugh….

November Book Reviews

This month I really didn’t read anything that blew my mind and apparently I was really into Chic Lit books.  I think part of that is due to me reading the Empress Dowager book which was really long (but really interesting). The quote above really resonated with me. Even though I do try to read…

October Book Reviews

LOL…the quote above really made me laugh especially since this month I read a lot of steamy romances.  I actually managed to read a lot this month and its hard to come up with a top 5 even though my favorite was pretty obvious…I look forward to see what my favorite will be next month…

September Reviews

So as I look at the list of books that I have read this month I realized there was a bit of a theme and apparently its the English. I didn’t plan it so it led me to want to explain how I choose the books I read… Its actually pretty difficult. Of course, I…

August Reviews

I started my dream job at the beginning of this month and my commute is even longer so I feel like it is a win win for me!  I decided to read longer books while commuting though so my book count is really low. That and I had a lot of work to do for…

July Reviews

Now that I am back in the US I am still taking public transportation which includes a train ride to work.  It’s not long but between waiting for the train and the actual ride I get some chapters in.  My friend Tim used to have a two hour train commute and read a lot on…

June Book Reviews

I did a lot of traveling this month so I wanted to read lighter books…that didn’t always work out and I didn’t read as much as I thought I would.  Busy Busy! I am finding that I am losing interest in some of the books I am reading too.  For example I started three books…

May Book Reviews

This was kind of a blah month.  Well that is only partially true since some of my favorite authors released books this month but in general I am having problems finding really interesting random books so I stuck with a few series as you will see below.  That and I started a new full time…

April Book Reviews!

It was a busy month but I had time to read!  Falling in love with Brad Meltzner so there will be a lot of his books on my lists going forward.  Trying to read more mysteries and random fiction in general because Paranormal and Chic Lit are seeming too formula right now…that and those are…
