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.
I didn't read a lot of non-review books in January so I only have two to feature. One audio and one read traditionally.
Here are my favorite non-review books for January 2023:
I forget how much I love Kate and Curran and was reminded with Magic Tides! Loved getting to know Conlan a little more since Blood Heir. Ilona Andrews is in the process of picking an audio narrator for this and I know I'll be listening to it (with the hubby) as a re-read once it comes out. I've just heard there's another book coming and I'm thrilled!
A great twisty mystery with the hint of a romance. A twenty-year old cold case is brought back into focus by an investigative journalist looking into the case to feature on her new podcast. We have her POV as well as Olivia's, one of the four in a car crash where three disappeared never to be seen or heard from again. The audio was fantastic!
I enjoyed The Couple at No. 9 as well, so I think it's time to check out Douglas' backlist.
That Andrews book must be amazing. I see its praises EVERYWHEREReplyDelete
They're such talented writers! I look forward to every new release!Delete
I keep seeing books by Andrews and it reminds me to check out some of her books soon.ReplyDelete
You should, Wendy!Delete
I will have to read Ilona Andrews some day. I keep hearing great things about her books.ReplyDelete
I think you'd love them, Mary, especially since you enjoy shifter stories!Delete
The Girls Who Disappeared sounds so interesting. And I like that you get the POV of one of the girls who was in the crash.ReplyDelete
It was really good! I liked her POV as well.Delete
haha I laughed when I saw Magic Tides as it will be one of my favorite books this YEAR. I also enjoyed The Girls Who Disappeared. So both of these were great for me.ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart
I think it will be for me too, Anne! They're supposed to release another new Kate book this summer!Delete
I'm hoping to read Magic Tides soon. That Claire Douglas sounds good. I've really gotten into the cold case/pod cast angle in mysteries lately.ReplyDelete
Oh, I think you'll love both, Sophia!Delete
