September 2016 Book Reviews

September was an eclectic bunch of books… nonfiction, magic, chic lit, around the world and a classic. I tend to read what sounds interesting at the time and it makes me “feel” something. If I don’t like it, I don’t finish it, oftentimes barely make it past the first chapter. This is probably why most…

August 2016 Book Reviews

I did a lot of traveling in August so most of the books this month are beach reads. I did read a few new authors I found through BookBub and Kindle Unlimited and somehow I ended up with three magic books. I guess I needed some magic in my birthday month ­čÖé Note – I…

July 2016 Book Reviews

I travelled to Poland at the end of July to attend World Youth Day (WYD) with Pope Francis and 2M of my closest friends. It was my first WYD since 2008 and Pope Benedict. I was excited for this trip not only because it was my first experience with Pope Francis but also because it…

June 2016 Book Reviews

March 2016 Book Reviews

Reading the classics is a new thing for me and I can’t help but notice the similarities in the books. The biggest similarity I found is that everyone is searching for Happiness. I find it interesting since our Declaration of Independence even says that all men have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit…

February 2016

I often feel at a loss when I finish a great book. In some cases I want more books like the one I just finished, other times I want to talk to everyone about it and then other times I want to to dig deeper into the subject. This month I had all of these…

January 2016 Reviews

I love escaping into a book and this month’s books certainly helped me do that! As you will see below I started my new reading plan this month by listening to Pride and Prejudice for the Classic book and reading Reading Lolita in Tehran for the Books from Around the World. These books were a…

New Year, New Look, New Books!

Changing things up here @Craisiebookreviews! The New Year is always a good opportunity to start over and do new things. Changing the look of the website is just the beginning… As I was creating my Top Books of 2015 I realized I read a lot of light, fun books (aka beach reads and chic lit).┬áThose…
