June 2014 Book Reviews

I don’t know where this picture came from originally but four different people sent it to me on Facebook. For those of you who don’t recognize the beat, it’s Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-A-Lot era 1992. The original talks about women with big butts so both the original and this version apply to me….

May 2014 Book Reviews

I officially hit the 1000 book mark on Goodreads this month!  I know I have read more but being official means a lot. Besides where was Goodreads 30 years ago when I started reading.  I am sure there are many books that I can’t even remember I have read. I know there is one series…

March 2014 Craisie Book Reviews

With all the rain that we have had and the fact that my favorite authors released new books I have stayed up later than normal this month. The Chase by Janet Evanovich NYPD Red2 by James Patterson The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker Cress by Marissa Meyer…

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…

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…

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…
