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…

December 2014 Book Reviews

This is a very exciting month for me because I started the month with some of my favorite authors and characters.  These books make great Christmas books for readers but real fans can’t wait that long! I used the picture above because I believe it’s important to support our authors and I am impressed that…

Nov 2014 Book Reviews

Kind of a slow reading month for me.  I blame it on a couple of things including traveling a lot but I think the main cause is that I now need reading glasses 😦 I read on my commute to work and I was getting a headache everyday that didn’t seem to go away.  After…

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…
