Books I Read – November 2019

Wow, it’s been a long month. More work, NaNoWriMo, and trying to move. I made a trip up to Milan and Genoa – what beautiful cities! I absolutely loved them…and the food! I had ravioli in Genoa in this walnut sauce, and it was so good, I almost licked the plate. I didn’t get near… Continue reading Books I Read – November 2019

Books I Read – August 2019

Ok, I have been really quiet this month. My endometriosis is acting up again – a LOT – and one of my writing clients is upping my workload significantly. Plus, M needed to go to the eye doctor, my cat died, and M’s disability insurance was being difficult (not really their fault, it was actually… Continue reading Books I Read – August 2019

Books I Read – July 2019

The Silent Patient – Alex Michaelides I did a couple of thriller books this month, starting with The Silent Patient. I’d give this book 4.5 stars out of 5. It was really engrossing at the beginning, then there was a segment in the middle where it kind of felt like it would be straightforward, before… Continue reading Books I Read – July 2019

Books I Read – April 2019 – And A Life Update

Hey everyone! I haven’t blogged much in April at all, and I’m sorry for it but it’s been a wild month so all I’ll get done is these books, basically. The biggest news/obstacle was we are moving! Our current lease expires May 8th, so we were navigating Italian real estate from this side of the… Continue reading Books I Read – April 2019 – And A Life Update

My Favorite Kids’ Books

It’s Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and I thought I’d share some of my favorite kids’ books from when I was a child. I’ve been reading since I was about three, but there are some books that stand out, even more than 20 years later. Even if you’re an adult,… Continue reading My Favorite Kids’ Books

Books I Read – February 2019

So this month, I restricted myself to books relating to Black History Month, and I’m glad I did. A bit of rereading, some new reading, and I found some wonderful books that will make you think and question and…respect what a community has gone through. Hidden Figures – Margot Lee Shetterly OK, I had high… Continue reading Books I Read – February 2019

Books I Read – January 2019

I am a huge reader, and since I just recently signed up for Scribd, I thought it would be fun to review the books I read each month. I mostly read fiction, but want to read more nonfiction/self-help type books this year, so it should be a solid mix. You’ll definitely see some authors pop… Continue reading Books I Read – January 2019
