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.

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…

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….

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…
