You should! They are really good. A very interesting take on the supernatural world. I really enjoyed them :)

Just wrapped up Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. This ends the Anna Duology. This was good! Not as good as the first book, but 4 Stars!!!

Just finished listening to The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah This is a historical fiction novel and it was WONDERFUL! I can't recommend it enough. This book will stay with me forever. My only warning is that you need to be prepared to literally weep. Because I was a wreck.

5 Stars!!!

I thought it was really fun. I'm not sure 🤔 I'm going to pick up the series though as there are so many books and I have plenty to read.

I finished It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover

5/5 Stars.

The book deals with domestic abuse and sheds light on the fact that it isn't just plain black and white for those involved. Its muddled. This book brought me to tears and broke my heart. I found myself almost weeping at some points in the story.
I highly recommend it, but I do so with caution. Make sure you know what exactly you're getting into before hand.

So glad you enjoyed it! I did as well. I plan on reading the second one before I decide to invest my time in the entire series. My TBR is a mile long too haha

Finished listening to Gideon's Sword by Douglas Preston. This didn't hold my attention very well. I think I can give it a 3/5.


message 16: by Keri (new)

Keri Phillips  | 167 comments Ok. I'm going to try to remember to add my books this month!!! BTW, 2 things....
1. I discovered an app call scribd. It's like $9 a month and it's supposed to be unlimited listening. I re-read (listened) to a lot of Nora Roberts last month. Totally worth it (and there are some cross stitch magazines in their too)
2. I went through my nook and my kindle app and added most of my ebooks to my TBR. I did this because I discovered a few books that I wanted so much, I bought them twice. Thus the massive TBR list I put up today. Don't get excited... I'm sure I'll never get to them all...

Your Comeback: Your Past Doesn't Have to Determine Your Future give it a 4 star. I enjoy listening and reading Tony Evans
Illuminae
Gemina
Obsidio These are TOTALLY 5 star reads. I am not big into sci-fi, but the way these are done are AMAZING! I totally recommend listening to the audiobooks while looking at the books. They are laid out in collections of files and communications and other illustrations. And the way the trilogy wrapped up was perfect.
The Exiled Queen 4-5 star - loving this series as well
Salt to the Sea 5 star. Guys, I cried. Hearing about WW2 atrocities and what some of these people had to go through is heart breaking. VERY well written YA historical fiction. If you like historical fiction at all, pick this one up.

Diana (secondhandrose) The Boat by Nam Le 5/5
This was a superb collection of short stories. Despite winning numerous awards for this book around 2009, nothing has been heard of Nam Le since. :(
