Thoughts on books
Thank You for Listening
When a friend and I went to hear Taylor Jenkins Reid speak during her book tour for Carrie Soto, she raved about this book by the woman who has narrated many of her books.
The Heart Principle
To be honest, I had doubts going into this one because The Kiss Quotient was just okay for me.... after reading a few reviews from people saying that they didn't care for TKQ but that they really liked this one, I said okay, let's go.
To be honest, I didn't know what I was getting into with this book. This book, which I chose thinking it would be an easy, light-hearted read ended up surprising me.
City of Girls
This is going to be a "love it" or "hate it" for most people. I think I fall somewhere toward the latter on this one, unfortunately.
The Angel Maker
I was so excited to have been approved to read this book, one of, if not THE most-anticipated thrillers of 2023. I really liked The Whisper Man and The Shadows was decent, and this book has the same sinister quality as those.
How to Stop Time
One thing that Matt Haig does so well is write about the nuance of the human experience. I love the way his mind works to come up with creative ways to explore everything about what it means to be humans, specifically in this novel, the way we let our emotions control us.
What Have We Done
One of the years most anticipated thrillers of the year is the latest from Alex Finlay, author of Night Shift and Every Last Year.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown
This was such a fun and sweet book! It is the perfect combination of sweet, sexy, hot, and heartfelt.
When We Left Cuba
This is the second book in The Perez Family series by Chanel Cleeton. I'm happy to report that, in my opinion, this book is just as good as the first one! In fact, I think I liked it better.
Of Manners and Murder
Well, now, that was just delightful! It's like a murder in Bridgerton being solved by Enola Holmes...fancy dinners, beautiful people, and murder.
