Surrender to Me (The Lawsons of Louisiana) - Donna Hill
The Paris Spy - Susan Elia MacNeal

Breakfast in Bed (The Innkeepers) - Rochelle Alers
The Other Girl - Erica Spindler

There are many more August releases than the ones I've chosen to read. In choosing books that interest me, I'm trying to discern if the writing and plot are enough. I've listened to about 2-5% in each of these books and know, thus far, we will do well. 

 

I realize that it's best for me to get in with more than one book so, that I'm already interested to move on to the next. Reading one book at a time and then picking up another that doesn't hold my attention leaves me blank for days. I lose steam and dawdle. Already I have finished 6 books in July, with this method, and am so pleased. I could've read more if I would've adopted this way much sooner.

 

Here's the release dates for these books and others that aren't shown that I may read;

Seeking Sarah
Seeking Sarah: A Novel - ReShonda Tate Billingsley

Title:  Seeking Sarah

Author:  ReShonda Tate Billingsley

Publisher: Gallery Books

Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean

Rating: Five

Review:

 

"Seeking Sarah" by ReShonda Tate

 

My Thoughts...

 

I loved this story "Seeking Sarah" that was "about finding something you so desperately crave, and losing yourself in the process."

 

What a good read this story that was conveyed  so well to the readers.  I felt so very sorry for Brooke because I found that she really didn't know how to go about getting what she wanted and that was the love of her mom.  Therefore Brooke went to much from secrets, loss, deception, lies, even revenge and heartbreak that caused so much more than one would ever want to happen.  End the end will Brooke finally get all she wants ...the love of her mother and a husband?  Or will she have to settle for ... well, I will stop here and just say you will have to pick up "Seeking Sarah" to see how this story will all come out.  Be prepared for some twist and turns as the secrets come out and a ending that will leave one shaking their heads and saying wow!  You will definitely be left seeing "how important a parent's love is and how it can not only shape a child's life but also their future."

 

Thank you to Net Gallery for the read.

Seeking Mr. Wrong - Natalie Charles

Lettie was a kindergarten teacher who wrote children’s books and gt dumped by her fiance two days before their wedding when he decided he was gay. Faye’s- Lettie’s sister - and called Lettie to let her know that she needed Lettie to watch the twins while she went to the twins parents orientation for kindergarten. Lettie and Faye’s father is semi retired lawyer who loves to sail so he couldn’t watch the twins- Portia and Bloise . Lettie started writing children’s books a few years earlier to use in her classroom. She uses them to teach the social graces. .She had published five so far. She also had another to show her editor. Then her editor told her that she was not printing children’s books but erotica now, Lettie has to write stories with Erotica in them to fulfill her contract.  Lettie decides to look for someone to help her with that.  Lettie’s new boyfriend is Eric and he is the Vice Principal at the school she works at.

I didn’t particularly care for this book. I just didn’t find it that exciting and interesting and this type of story has been done before. There was too much going on. It also felt a bit rushed I didn’t like Eric at first he was a butt two times but he did redeem himself. But just wasn’t for me. I am sure others will enjoy this.

Seeking Mansfield - Kate Watson Seeking Mansfield - Kate Watson

Finley rubbed one of the small circular scars branded into her right shoulder. She was on her computer with Mansfield Theater Youth application pulled up. She felt she was stupid to even submit the application then Oliver her godparent’s son knocked on her door then Oliver started filling out the rest of her application Then his sister Juliette and her boyfriend Raleigh came in Finley’s room. Finley father had been an actor and was dead. Finley lived with her godparents and was grateful for all they had done for her. Oliver’s aunt Nora was forever reminding Finley how much she owed her godparents and what Finley would be doing to pay them back. Almost as if belittling and hurting Finley. Then for the last month Nora had left Finley alone. She didn’t know why unless her Godparents had said something. Be very victim ut for whatever the reason Finley was grateful.

I couldn’t really get into this story it just didn’t keep my attention

Desperately Seeking Starlight
Desperately Seeking Starlight - Zenina M... Desperately Seeking Starlight - Zenina Masters Interesting, but I thought a few things were poorly explained or not at all. I was left confused. But Zenina's creativity never fails to impress.
