What Have I Been Reading

Hi Readers- My post have been few and far between lately. It is not because I am not reading. I am working outside the house and that takes a lot more of my free time. I wanted to catch up and let you know what I’ve read in the last few weeks.

Historical Romance

Rules for a proper governess 1. Rules For A Proper Governess by Jennifer Ashley
I just finished finished this one over the weekend and I really enjoyed it. My favorite thing about this read was it wasn’t about a peer and a wallflower. It was about a barrister and a thief. For all you Ian Mackenzie fans he does makes an appearance (as do all the other Mackenzie’s).

 

always true to her

 

 2. Always True to Her by Maureen Driscoll
I enjoyed the story and characters of this book. Ms. Driscoll has a way of bringing you into a family that you never want to leave. She did with the Kellington’s and now she is doing it with the Emerson’s. James and Irene are a great couple and little Anna just steals your heart. I enjoyed the plot and character development.

 

The Suffragette Scandal 3. The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan
This was an unforgettable read. Ms. Milan keeps breaking the mold and creating stories that are fresh and new. I love the take Free has on the world and how she make a difference. She knows it may not be the biggest difference today but it could be tomorrow. What a strong message to say. It was just a great read with a hot romance. There is a side story that I felt relayed a strong message as well.

Contemporary Romance

Seduction and Snacks 1. Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec
Holy Buckets of Laughter was what this book was about. Actually not just this book but the whole Chocolate Lovers Series. I have never laughed so hard while reading a book. This is a book that is really fun to read because of all the laughing you’ll do. It’s very open, real and raw about sex.
*I spent the better part of my summer reading these books. So fun!

 

Beneath It All 2. Beneath It All by Tori Madison
Being October and Breast Cancer Awareness month (it should be every month like all cancers and diseases) I wanted to make sure I pointed out this book. This book is about a young woman (my age!) finding out she has breast cancer and the toll it has on her marriage. This is a great read. It’s still a romance but with a very important message. This read made me think about my own life and marriage.

 

The Matchbaker 3. The Matchbaker by Jerrica Knight-Catania
This was an easy book to read and enjoy. The family dynamic is great and the twist of magic is fun. I am looking forward to more in this series.

 

 

Happy Reading!

How do you find your next book?

Hi Reader Friends,

How do you go about finding your next book? Do you just randomly pick a book or like me do you have a long list of To Be Read (TBR)? If you have that long list of TBR how do you add to it? Do you use reviews and ratings?

I use Good Reads and blogs to find my next book. Good Reads is helpful to organize your list of books, as well as, rate and review the books you read. To be honest, usually the best book is a recommendation by a friend. I have found many of my favorite books are recommendations from a friend.
