Catching up to do...

Happy New Year!! Book Friends
It's 2022!! 

Joining up with Jana Says and Life According to Steph to share my monthly reads.
This is the best way to get great book recommendations and sky high TBRs!
I have been reading some great books lately.  Many of the January books are from
Erin's Challenge 16.0.   My husband and I enjoy doing the challenge together.
First I am posting my Best of 2021 Books!   2021 turned out to be a good reading year.  I finished 89 books which is a normal reading year for me.  Do you have a favorite from this list?

January kicked off the year with most of the books being from Erin's Challenge 16.0.  I didn't have a favorite per se this month, but  I am intrigued and look foward to reading the sequel to There, There in 2022.  Any books here you have read and enjoyed?  Let me know. 


I had my first 5 star read in early February - These Silent Woods by Kimi Cunningham Grant

Currently Reading:  Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, Golden Girl by Elin Hilderbrand, and Doing Life with Your Adult Children: Keep Your Mouth Shut and the Welcome Mat Out by Jim Burns

 Hello Books Friends. 

This is my first post in over a year.  Had to join in on Show Us Your Books Anniversary!! with JANA and STEPH  It is a fun monthly link up to share what you have read that month with other readers.  

My Reading has been pretty steady over the past year.  There have been times when I've read a lot (while I had covid (while vaccinated).   Other times have been slower.  Audiobooks have been my friend this year and I'm not mad about it.  

Favorites - Purple Hibiscus, Where the Forest Meets the Stars, Know My Name

Currently Reading - Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe & Night Circus

Panda Pages April/May 2020

Linking up with Jana and Steph as always...

During the quarantine I felt like I was on a reading roller coaster, some weeks reading a lot; others reading very little.  Glad to be heading into June with summer reads and Erin's Reading Challenge 13.0 coming up in July.  I have enjoyed buying books at local independent book stores and this week my book club had our first social distancing meet up and it was fun.  We swapped books, made resin coasters with flowers and sea glass and shared little goodies with each other.  

Favorites from my reads were:  Long Way Down, Valentine, Summer of 69, and Save me the Plums 4 stars, everything else 3 stars except My Very 90's Romance 2 stars.  

Currently I am reading Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and Red at the Bone.  

Happy Reading!!

March Reads 2020 (and April so far....)

March Reads 2020 - April 2020 (so far...)

The best monthly book link up on the internet!!

Reading has been interesting lately.  Finished up Erin's Challenge April 1st.  Many good reads.  March favorites were Ordinary Grace, Hum if You Don't Know the Words and
 Dear Edward.

April is shaping up albeit slowly.  I feel a little off my reading curve right now.  Ask Again, Yes and What Happens in Paradise are favorites so far.  I really enjoyed WHIP.  It was a true escape read and the setting of St. John didn't hurt ;)   Can't wait for Trouble in Paradise this Fall.  

Currently reading When We Believed in Mermaids (highly recommended by Steph and Jana.  Just started listening to The Dreams From My Father:  A Story of Race and Inheritance.
