Current Reads

I'm attempting to read these four books by Friday evening. Some of these books I've put off for far too long. I'm giving myself lofty goals because my brain has been cooperating lately.

My Friday/Weekend Reads

My reading has been really good as of late. I've been trying to read a book a day. I've read 3 books so far this month and that's really good for me. I'm hoping reading these short romance books will not tire my brain and I can keep going. 

 

 

1) Red Carpet Redemption by Yahrah St. John

 

2) Seduced by a Steele by Brenda Jackson

 

3) Property of the State by Kiki Swinson

 

 

 

Happy Reading Everyone!

I had one of my best reading months in March. I think it had a lot to do with not selecting heavy historical fiction books and choosing lighter reads. I always request my favorite genre and then get bogged down with 5-6 heavy WWII and Slavery books that take a toll on me mentally. I'm not complaining because I like what I like. I'm just saying that I need to learn balance. 

 

A wonderful St. Martin's publicist reached out to me to read Butterfly 2 (that will be released in June) by the beast writer Ashley Antoinette. I had requested the first book Butterfly, but hadn't read it. Knowing myself I decided to stop everything and start Butterfly. Well, that was the beginning of a reading frenzy. Butterfly is the spinoff of the Ethic Series which consist of 6 books. Not only that, but it really all begins with the book Moth to a Flame. I feverishly read Butterfly 1 and 2 and then continued on to MTAF. I'm starting Ethic 1 today. Ashley has proven over the years that writing is her calling and we readers are happy she answered it. These are Street Fiction and are about that life. Most have heavy explicit sex scenes. I must admit that sometimes I'm bothered by that if not noted. However, I find that it comes with these types of books and Ashley delivers even in this. It's steamy!

 

One of my new favorite regency romance authors is Darcy Burke. I can't get enough of her books. I was introduced to her through Erica Ridley. They co-wrote the Wicked Dukes Club. If you enjoy regency romance I would enthusiastically recommend both authors works. I enjoyed A Duke is Never Enough and can't wait to read another one of her backlist while I wait for her next release. It won't be long because both authors crank out stories like no other.

 

Eric Jerome Dickey's books, that I've read, have been hit or miss. His new release The Business of Lovers didn't disappoint. It was a solid story. What I didn't enjoy was his graphic sex scenes. They were written with a male perspective, in my opinion. I can now see a glimpse of why he is so beloved by many. I'm all about the story. You can be a good writer and have a bad story. I get that. Also, you can rush a story and not develop it to its potential. I'm enthused to say that's not the case here.

 

I requested and was approved on Edelweiss for a digital copy of Glass Town by Isabel Greenberg. I tried to view it on my kindle fire 8, but the words were so small and could not be enlarged that I decide to just purchase a copy from Book depository. I knew that I would want a copy for my shelves. The book is absolutely stunning. It is well crafted and the pages are very thick. The story was good. Was I wowed by it? No, I wasn't, but that doesn't mean I didn't appreciate what Isabel has done. It is a story I will read over and over and share with the littles in my life.

 

The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauk was an unforgettable read. You get so immersed in the characters. The character development was everything. When the story ended I was kind of left hanging. I wanted more. I haven't read many books by this author, but have seen others sing her high praises. I own more than a couple of her backlist books and will be picking them up before years end. Books about books are most book lovers favorites to read and I wouldn't miss this one if you enjoy them.

 

*I'm losing steam friends. I will continue with the last 2 books.

 

Saving Savannah by Tonya Bolden was a quick read. I did enjoy it. It is historical fiction set in the 1900's at the time of the Red Summer and the fight for the right to vote for women. The book itself is stunning. I will be picking up a copy for my shelves. I listened to the audio of the book on Hoopla. Hoopla is awesome! The narrator did a great job.

 

The final book to discuss is The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica. Wowzers! This book had all the twist and turns. I thought I knew what was happening, but found out about 2/3 in that I had no clue and was way off. I commend Kubica for her page-turner suspense abilities. She is another author that has been on my radar, but haven't read. I've been missing out. Friends pick this one up. I'm telling you it is one not to be missed!

 

I'm excited for April and hope I have another awesome month of great reads...

Karma. Odważna i romantyczna

Malwina Chojnacka – autorka powieści obyczajowej, komediowej. Dramat, który stworzyła na potrzeby telewizji pt. „Upał”, zdobył wyróżnienie w 2018 r. „Karma. Odważne i romantyczne”, to pierwszy tom z serii o prawdziwej przyjaźni i sile miłości – do siebie, ludzi i zwierząt.

 

 

W książce zauroczą nas trzy przyjaciółki, Wiktoria, Justyna i Ola. Każda z nich inna z własnymi problemami i rozterkami życiowymi. Wspólnie zakładają Karmę – kawiarnię przyjazną psom. Wiktoria to silna kobieta, która po ciężkiej chorobie powraca do normalnego życia. Justyna, miłośniczka zwierząt pracuje w schronisku. Prowadzi własne śledztwo w sprawie katowania psów przez nieznanego sprawcę. Ola podejmuje trudną decyzję o rozstaniu z mężem. Stara się stanąć na nogi i być finansowo niezależną. Łączy ich przyjaźń i miłość do zwierząt. Jeden rok z życia trzech kobiet. Co się może wydarzyć, czy znajdą to, czego szukają ?

 

Charaktery bohaterek są bogate, szczegółowe i dopracowane, nie sposób je pomylić. Autorka zadbała, by bohaterki nie były nudne i każda kobieta odnalazła w nich własne cechy i podobieństwo. Dajemy się wciągnąć w ich życie, które nie jest pozbawione smutków i problemów, ale także żartów, uśmiechów i radości. Przyjaciółki wspierają się nawzajem, co stanowi o ich sile. Dzięki relacjom, jakie je łączą, wierzą, że wszystkie problemy mogą zostać rozwiązane.

 

Szybko się czyta i płynie lekko za fabułą. Z zaciekawieniem pochłania się każdą stronę czasem z uśmiechem, czasem ze zmarszczonym czołem i smutkiem. Paleta emocji, przyjaciółki barwne jak kolorowe ptaki lecące w stronę szczęścia. Czytając, odpoczywałam, uśmiechałam się i czułam się świetnie – to książka stworzona dla mnie.

 Książka o kobietach i dla kobiet. Siła przyjaźni, dążenie do szczęścia ciągłe zmierzanie się z problemami. Gdy pojawi się kolejna cześć, to na pewno po nią sięgnę. Wydaje mi się, że ta książka będzie wysoko w różnych plebiscytach na najlepszą powieść 2020 r. i tego z całego serca życzę autorce.
