I can’t believe its been just over 3 months since I last posted a review. Saturday Nite Reader Juniorand I have had a lot of couch time that included more TV than reading – oops – BUT, I did manage to finish 1 physical book and 12 audiobooks. Audiobooks were my jam…and yes, I count them as books “read.”
Here is a peak as to what reviews I will be posting soon:Read More »
“The same way you’d get wrinkles on your face from making the same facial expression over and over, she thought, you could probably get wrinkles on your brain from thinking the same thoughts and feeling the same feelings over and over.” – Suzy Krause, Valencia and Valentine
Published: June 1, 2019 by Lake Union Publishing
I just hit the 50% mark of Suzy Krause’s debut novel – Valentine and Valencia – and have a theory on how Valencia and Mrs. Valentine’s lives may intersect: I can’t wait to see if I am right!!!!
This is what I love about reading: that excitement to see how the book will actually wrap up in the end.Hopefully I can get to that within the next few days. I’ve been limited on reading time and trying to sneak in a chapter here and there when I can. Can anyone else relate?!Read More »

Total Parent Trap vibes, but obviously not the exact storyline. If you are a fan of the original movie you will start singing “Let’s Get Togetheryeah, yeah, yeah” 🎶 to yourself quite often, or at least I did. 😉Read More »

Has a book ever made you laugh and cry at the same time? Well this book will make you “craugh” and craugh hard.
The story unfolded over a series of emails, texts and blog posts.I had never read a book entirely in that format and it totally worked here. It was expertly done! I read a majority of this book in one sitting because I needed to keep turning the page. Read More »

I bought this book in March of 2018 and it had been sitting on my shelf a bit too long. I typically do not read fantasy, but was intrigued by the synopsis and gravitated toward the stunning book cover. Fast forward to January 2019 and it was my book club book! Its a beast of a book clocking in at 527 pages so I thought I would enlist the help of the audiobook from the library to keep me on pace.
I am SO glad I picked up the audiobook!The book is action packed and narrator, Bahni Turpin, brought all the characters to life.She captured the emotions effortlessly that I would often listen to the audio while reading along (as I do like to hold a book in my hands).Read More »
