I'm back with My Favorite Non-Review Books!
I've been a little MIA lately because I'm just so tired. Work last week just about killed me and then we drove up to my daughter's house (4 1/2 hours each way) and while I loved seeing the kids there was absolutely no rest. I'm looking forward to Thursday since I only work half-day then I'm off the rest of the week.
I have mixed feelings on Friday since the root-canal I had scheduled last Friday got pushed to this one coming and I don't relish the idea of spending 3 hours in a dental chair: shots, drilling and other horrors. Can I fast forward to Friday afternoon, please?
I'm a little late as September is halfway over (how is that possible?!), but here are my August picks.
As a blogger sometimes writing reviews can feel like a chore so it seems I rarely write reviews for non-review books anymore. I feel bad about that, because it's not that I didn't enjoy them less than the books I review here, just that I don't have the time or energy to write a review for each and every book I read. I thought it would be nice to list my favorite non-review books each month to bring more attention to them.
Emma's involved in an accident and wakes from a coma to find her BFF and fiancé together while trying to put her life back together again. I love these triumph over extreme adversity type of stories, and the romance was oh-so-good!
It was hard to stop listening to this one, but I do think it would've benefited by some editing down. Great audio with a full-cast of characters.
Book #9 in the Psy-Changeling series. One of my favorites. I'm already almost done with the next book.
I only read three non-review books in August, but I think I've already exceeded that in September. I'm too tired to look right now.
How about you? What were your favorite non-review books recently?
Good luck with the dentist. I hope it all goes well (and is painless). I love Shalvis and I really adored Love for Beginners. The romance was great, but I liked the friendship that developed between Emma and Ali too.ReplyDelete
Yes! I really enjoyed their becoming friends after being enemies.Delete
Thanks for sharing; I love little reviews like these. I hope all goes well on Friday! And I feel you about being tired and just a bit burnt out.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lauren! I'm so ready for Friday to be over! Hope you get some rest, too! :)Delete
I'm a stalwart Jill Shalvis fan and I enjoyed this one. Of course, I'm loving the Read-along, although that wasn't certain at the beginning as I hadn't read this series. It just keeps getting better from where you are. Thanks for joining us!ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart
I haven't read that many books by her but I have enjoyed what I read, but this has to be my favorite so far. 5 Stars all the way!Delete
I love Jill Shalvis books, I don't think I've read Love for Beginners, so I"m going to check it out. I've wondered about the James Patterson/Bill Clinton book. I might have to check that out too, I think it's a wise choice to listen to audiobook for that one too.ReplyDelete
I still need to read James Patterson. This one with Clinton looks good. Yay for enjoying the PsyChangeling books!ReplyDelete
This was a fun book. I was wondering how the former President would fair as a writer. He did well! Yes, loving the series!Delete
I like Jill Shalvis but I've only read one of her books so far. I hope you get some rest this week.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I hadn't read many by her before. Maybe less than 5 books, but this has been my favorite so far.Delete
I have Singh's Kiss of Snow in my library stack right now. It's a fun series. And good luck on Friday! Anything to do with dentists and drilling makes me shudder. I hope all goes well.ReplyDelete
I'm really looking forward to Hawk and Sienna's romance! Yes, I hate going to the dentist! I'm dreading how long it's supposed to take! Thanks, Lark! Me too! :)Delete
I can definitely understand this Rachel. It can be so exhausting sometimes right? I just love that one of Nalini Singh's ...its so good.ReplyDelete
Yes! I'm looking forward to Friday afternoon. I don't feel like I can enjoy my day off until that dental appointment is over.Delete
I've had The President is Missing on my TBR forever. Now that there's a sequel, I really do need to get around to reading it. Hope your dental work goes off without a hitch and that you're able to get some rest this weekend!ReplyDelete
You have been busy, while I have posts from a week ago and I have done nothing, ooopsReplyDelete
