August 2015 Book Reviews

The picture above will be me next week in Aruba. This month is more beach reads for people like me who refuse to let summer go!  I also caught up with a few of my favorite authors and series… That Baby by Jillian Dodd The Bourbon King by J.R. Ward Eighth Grave After Dark by…

July 2015 Book Reviews

Yes, more beach reads this month! It’s summer and reading anything too dramatic just doesn’t seem palatable especially when traveling. In July, I spent time reading by a pool in Eugene, OR, reading on a plane on the way to Bentonville, AR and lastly on the train to Santa Barbara to meet some college friends….

June 2015 Book Reviews

Its summer time which means Beach Reads! It is only July and it has been hard trying to save these books for vacations…I still have Santa Barbara and Aruba coming up!  Thank God some of my favorite authors are releasing books this month! Many of the books below were free from either Nook or Kindle….

May 2015 Book Reviews

Wow! What a great month of reading. I read twenty books and only seven of them didn’t get 5 stars. The Nightingale 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…

April 2015 Book Reviews

It was a pretty random month as far as reading but I enjoyed finding new authors and reading more from few of my favorites. If you are wondering where I am finding some of these random books check out BookBub, its a great service that sends me an email everyday with free or cheap books…

March 2015 Book Reviews

I read a lot this month because I fell head first into the deep end of the Young Adult pool two weekends in a row. I am constantly on the look-out for the book or series that will take over my life and for a couple of weekends this month I found them. I got completely…

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…

October 2014 Book Reviews

The final book in Ken Follett’s Century trilogy was released this month and I couldn’t put it down. After I finished it I posted this on my Facebook page “Edge of Eternity was one of the most emotional books I have read in a LONG time! The last 40 years of the 1900’s were jammed packed…

September 2014 Book Reviews

Two amazing series ended this month. They were long but in the “it can never be long enough” way that fans of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones understand. There is always the sense of loss after a great series but unlike a breakup or your favorite restaurant closing the books will always be there….

August 2014 Book Reviews

  After visiting the Mob museum last month in Vegas I got super interested in books about the mob – even one of the “beach” reads was mob related. Most of them were really long though so I didn’t read as many books as I thought I would…AND… I was more social than normal during…

July 2014 Book Reviews

I ran away from home for the 4th of July.  I live near San Francisco and it’s true…the summer’s are cold (the coldest winter was a summer spent in San Francisco)!  I went to Las Vegas to warm up and to sit by the pool and read. I read ten books in five days!  When…
