    Show Us Your Books Volume 4

    I am 5 days early with this post, but it’s just the way the cookie crumbled for this month. It was another slow reading month for me, which makes me a bit sad because I was doing so well a few months ago. I just haven’t had the time for it, and I am hoping vacation over the next few weekends helps with that. I also partially blame my library because there are so many books on the hold list right now!    The Nest 2 out of 5 stars I wanted so much more out of this book. I love a good reality TV show and I thought this…

  • Show Us Your Books Volume 3

    Another month of working towards my 50 books in 2016, and another month of linking up with Steph and Jana for Show Us Your Books. I had another busy month, and I couldn’t read nearly as many books as I would have liked to, but I would still call it a success. I’m hoping for some down time in August to dive into some of the other books on my list. As always, if you have read any of these books, or have recommendations, let me know!   Never Broken 4 out of 5 stars This book was very long, and I think I would have enjoyed it more if…

    Show Us Your Books Volume 2

    This was not a very big reading month for me, but I am hoping that this month will be better since we will be on a week long vacation. I have a few books on hold and can’t wait to get them, and I am also looking for more biographies (still). I’m planning on giving Stephen King a go next month as well, thanks for Alex’s recommendations. I’m linking up a day early for Show Us Your Books and I can’t wait to see what everyone else has read!   Promises To Keep By Jane Green 2 out of 5 This book was really hard to get through. Almost every…

  • Show Us Your Books Volume 1

    I know I said that I would be starting a MWF posting schedule this week, but when I realized the Show Us Your Books link-up was today, I knew I needed to jump in and finally join Life According to Steph and Jana Says for the first time. I guess next week I will quit with the 5 days a week, and step back, but it’s just so difficult! As I mentioned last month, I have been on a crazy reading train lately. I have some books that I have only listened to the audio books and others that I have been actually reading, then there are the books that…

  • Books I Have Been Reading

      It’s been a long time since I did a book check-in, quite honestly because I just haven’t been reading. A few weeks ago I jumped back on the reading train, so I’m excited to share some thoughts. I realized that I am now 6 books behind my reading goal of 50 books in 2016, so I hope to keep this up. I have been on a non-fiction kick and I’m loving it! If you have any recommendations, please let me know.   Room: 3 out of 5 I went through this book pretty quickly because it wasn’t much to focus on. While the book was deep and the storyline…

  • CollaboReads: We Were Liars

    It’s my first time taking part in #CollaboReads, and I can’t wait to continue joining in the fun every month. I go through phases of reading, and this summer I have been all about it (check back next week for more reviews). This months theme is “a book set in the summertime”. I originally planned on reading  The Last Summer because I heard it is a great book, and I also loved The Sisterhood books. As I was waiting for the book to arrive, I downloaded We Were Liars to have in the meantime. As I started reading, I realized it was all set in the summer, so it could…
