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 ūüôā 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

Historical Fiction seems to be my new favorite genre. When people ask me what books I would recommend lately I have¬†suggested an historical fiction book and the quote above is so true. Imagine how cool your history class would be if it was taught like a Ken Follett book. ¬†Historical Romance books have been intriguing…

May 2016 Book Reviews

The quote above is very appropriate for this month not only because I read an Alexandre Dumas book but because once again I went down a black hole of fairy tales and royals. I blame secret algorithms in Book Bub, Kindle and Nook and how they know exactly what book to offer me to suck…

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…

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…

November 2015 Book Reviews

I am one of those people that can sit in a busy crowded room (or public transportation) and get so completely absorbed in the book that the rest of the world disappears. I love when I get so into the book that my heart starts beating really fast and I feel like I can’t breathe…

October 2015 Book Reviews

Most people go home and plop down in front of the TV – I read. I read on my commute, I listen to books as I walk around town and while cooking and cleaning, and I read before I go to bed. I usually have at least 3 books going at the same time. To…

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…

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…
