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…

September 2015 Book Reviews

I love the picture above – it’s a great idea!  I took over 100 books with me to Aruba but not everyone plans like I do 🙂 It’s officially fall now and it may be too late for beach reads but book mark this page for your trips to the beach this winter or next…

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…

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…

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…

February 2014 Book Reviews

As you have noticed I sometimes get into trends during the month and this month the trend was Historical Fiction…and Oprah’s Book Club books. I have read a few OBC books but I was never a religious follower but after reading two thing month, I will keep them on my radar. As I have mentioned…

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…
