Welcome back to my little corner! I recently got nominated for a fun Entertainment Blogger award/tag, you can check out my post here and I highly recommend you check out all the amazing blogs I tagged as well! Look at me, two posts in one week! This may be my new goal. I’d really like to start doing more actual full book reviews. Any advice?
The only time ever that I don’t hate putting up laundry is while listening to an audio book. I’ve found it as the perfect compromise. I finished The Angels’ Share by J.R.Ward this week. It was good, it wrapped up almost everything nicely. Which leaves me to question what in the world book 3, The Devil’s Cut, will be about. I really expected this book to be more about Maxwell since the synopsis really made him sound sinister but he didn’t show up till over halfway through the book. I can’t say that I’ll read/listen to the next book. I may just have someone tell me what happens. Any takers?
Ever have one of those moments when you are completely wrapped up in a book, lost in the emotion, and someone comes along busting your bubble and completely jarring you to reality? Yea, that happened to me while reading Dragonfly in Amber. Normally my husband doesn’t bother me when reading and he knows how much i am loving the Outlander series but for whatever reason he decided to he absolutely needed my attention at that moment. If you’ve read the book you’ll know the scene, Claire and Jamie are at the little shack at the bottom of Craigh Na Dun and he’s confessed to have been counting the days. My heart stutters just thinking it all over again. Anyways, Hubby messed with me and I got off track before finishing the rest of the book. While it was still an amazing ending I feel that build up of emotion would have given it a little something extra had i not lost it. Even through all that I did cry. Boo-hooed really. I do plan to write up a longer full review so be on the lookout for that!
Another series I am loving is Lisa Gardner’s Quincy and Rainie series. I finished The Next Accident within almost 24 hours. I’ll admit I wasn’t keen on this book’s synopsis. You learn about Quincy and his family problems from the previous books and then a year after the accident and a month after the burial, it’s being questioned as murder? Why must it be a murder? Why can’t it legit just be something bad that happened and shaped them as they are. If you can’t tell this really did bother me but I expected a great story telling so i continued on. Overall it was a really good book that I’ve come to expect from Gardner. The plot was twisty and devious, the murder was smart, and the good guys just a smidgen smarter. The next book seems to focus more on Quincy’s daughter which I thinking will be interesting. I’ve already got it placed on hold from the library!
The book club I’m with likes to read not necessarily the same book but books in the same genre, which I love. This month’s theme is Non-Fiction. I have read very few non-fiction and own only two. One I attempted to pick up and hated it, the second I haven’t tried picking up because I’m nervous I’ll hate it too. I have however read a book on Mini Farming because I absolutely love the idea of being self sufficient. I’ve had small potted gardens in the past and attempted a larger garden this year only to have Mother Nature rail against every single attempt. I’ve decided to put down the gardening gloves for this year and try again next year. My husband and I are also seriously considering raising some chickens which lead me to read Raising Chicken for Dummies.
Also with this genre I’ve started listening to The Lost Girls by John Glatt. Obviously I love crime stories so I thought of venturing into True Crime to see what that’s like. So far into listening the narrator is good, which is a big consideration for any audio book, and the story has me hooked.
On to a lighter note! Romancing Mister Bridgerton is number 4 in the Bridgertons series. I’ve really been looking forward to reading this book specifically because a book review podcast I listen to enjoyed it and made me want to read it all the more! If you like baking and books check out Fresh Baked Books, I believe they have a website, Instagram and a Pinterest page. Its two sisters who review a book and bake goodies to go along with it. So far Romancing Mister Bridgerton has been one of my favorites of the series. I have only a few chapters left so I should be able to finish it up today.
I got some more book mail this week! Birthday book four out of seven arrived yesterday! Recklessly Royal is book 2 in The Royals Series by Nichole Chase. If you can’t tell by now I also have a love for royal romances. This is one of the series where the library has book one but none of the other! It drives me crazy. I’m planning on joining a Read-A-Thon over on Instagram at the beginning of July so I’m saving this quick read for then.
According to tracking numbers I should be getting one more book in the mail today, Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. I’ve seen this book around, have heard great things about it, and absolutely love that cover! Have you read it yet?
