Hey, everyone! I am trying something new here so that I can keep track of my reading goals this year. So I am going to keep a montly recap to see how I am doing with this and keep track of the books I read for my reading challenge. Does anyone else do something similar? I would love to check out your posts if you do.
Hey, everyone. I have had some questions about cozy mysteries (where to start, the best series, etc.) and wanted to make a post just about these books! Or rather, the starter books to some great series. So if your interested in cozies, or have been wondering what to try first (newbies) then I have a great list for you. Cozy mysteries come in all shapes and sizes and vary in terms of their focal points. Some are culinary, others are based on hobbies, and some are even paranormal. It's up to you as a reader to decide which one strikes your fancy. So check out this eclectic list below.
It is no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Meghan Quinn and her books. Not only is she a sweet author who loves to interact with her readers, but she writes the kind of romances that readers instantly fall in love with. Whenever I am in a book slump and am in need of a laugh she is the one I go to. So, I wanted to start a new list that gives readers a guide to her books. I hope everyone checks this out and gives her books a try (if you haven't already). PS: All of her books are free with a kindle unlimited subscription. Don't have one? You can try it for FREE for 30 days.
I have read many great books in 2017 but am glad to start another year. There were certainly some up's and down's this year in the reading world. and I found myself growing very bored with the selection (especially in romance). Many of them were just way too repetitive to me. With that being said, I am broadening my horizons this year and am going to focus on a myriad of genres instead of mostly romances. Anyway, here is my list of the top 17 books that I have read in 2017.
It's that time of year again. Time to commit to another reading challenge! I love these challenges and may even do a few mini challenges during the months. Why? Because it's fun to set goals for yourself, and we could never forget reading! This year, I want to not only set reading goals, but blogging goals as well. It can be really daunting and sometimes frustrating when I personally commit to so much- like ARC's, blog tours, and cover reveals. So I plan to take a BIG step back this year on those and only read/participate in books that I absolutely love or have been looking forward to for a long time. In addition to this, I am going to stop feeling guilty for not finishing the books I love. Normally, I try and read through the entire book even if I am not liking it (because I know how hard authors work) but I can no longer waste my time on books I don't love. So you may see a lot of books on my reading schedule with no reviews. If this is the case, it was a DNF for me. With that, feel free to join me this year in the reading challenge. I would love to see how everyone fares in theirs. Let me know what types of goals YOU'RE setting.
I have a pretty good list of upcoming releases posted here on my blog and there are quite a few that caught my eye. Each of these books have been carefully selected because they suit my reading needs and/or the reading preferences of my blog. In the last 2 years I have focused mainly on romances. But let me tell you a little something- romances were NOT my first love. I actually started out reading chick lit then added thrillers and mysteries to the mix. So my love for romances has only come about in the past 2-3 years. Knowing this, I am going to try and focus on a variety of genres this year- not just romance! Here is the list of the books I am excited about and may be reading in 2018. I hope to get to them all but... Who knows! My reading moods can change LOL. This list will NOT contain ARC's of books I already have to read. Just books that look good to me in general and may become future purchases. Any books that look good to you? Leave me a comment.
Kindle Unlimited is am AMAZING program for bookworms. This is especially true if you find yourself reading multiple books a week and spending $4.00 + on these books. I myself and a kindle unlimited subscriber and have found that I spent 75% less on books each month because of this program. This is a win win situation.
In this feature of The List, I am going to discuss and check out some young adult novels about dating violence. Recently I have read a few of these kind of novels and thought that because the issue is so relevant that it would be a good addition here. If you have any suggestions that would fit into this category, please share them in the comments. I would love to add them to the list for others to see. If you want to purchase any book in the list you can simply click on the cover.
Halloween is just under a week away! For many, this is the time for sipping cider, getting dressed up as something scary (sometimes sexy) and scaring the kids! For some of us, eating all the Halloween candy is our favorite part. Add that in with a couple of scary movies and books and you get the PERFECT Halloween.
In spirit of the holiday, I want to give readers a few recommendations for spooktacular reads. I have some books for the young adult fans (I love a scary YA book) and for the adults who want to feel extra scared. So have a look. Maybe you'll find the perfect book to read on Halloween night!
Bookish posts for readers looking to try something new. Will contain many different genres of books.
