What I Read in September 2023

Six books read in September puts me at 59 books for the year – woefully behind my goal of 100 books, but still trucking forward! 5 stars: The Boyfriend Candidate, by Ashley Winstead: Alexis is a school librarian reeling from a breakup – her boyfriend cheated on her, lied about it, and told her she was mousy and boring in bed. So she decides to act out of character, be irresponsible, and pick up a one night stand at a bar to prove to herself that she’s not those things. Unfortunately, the hot guy she picks up turns out to …

What I Read in August 2023

Best_Books_of_August_2023

I read ten books in August, which definitely helps me catch up on my goal of reading 100 books a year! That puts me at 53 books for the year, which is about two months behind, but it’s getting things back on the right track. I read a lot of lighter stuff this month, but Kara Goldin’s biography / business book was an awesome nonfiction read that was equally compelling to zip through. 5 stars: Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters, by Kara Goldin: Kara Goldin is a business / tech innovator and the founder of Hint Water. While I wasn’t …

What I Read in July 2023

I read six books in July, which is closer to the pace I want to be going for my 100 book goal. That puts me at 43 books for the year, which is still way behind, but hopefully things are trending up. One book in particular (Do Tell) really dragged, and I’d like to do a better job of quitting books I’m just not enjoying. Life is too short and there are too many great books out there! To that end, I always welcome your comments and suggestions on what to read next 🙂 5 stars: The Five-Star Weekend, by …

What I Read in June 2023

These two novels were both AMAZING and I couldn't put them down!

I read four books in June, putting me at 37 books for the year – well behind my goal of 100 books this year. I just have not made the time for reading as much as I should, where I’m usually only getting in 15 minutes a night or so before bed, and certain books are hanging me up (like the Society of Shame, reviewed below). July has not been much better, but I am hoping August can be a month of prioritizing reading, including some light stuff and some nonfiction. 5 stars: Happy Place, by Emily Henry: Harriet and …

What I Read in May 2023

Best_Books_of_May_2023

I read seven books in May, putting me at 32 books for the year, which is nine behind my goal to stay on track for 100 books this year. I need to get back on track with two books a week! I was doing pretty well until I got bogged down with a novel at the end of the month that I couldn’t really get into. But, I do have an incredible five star read to share… 5 stars: Love at 350°, by Lisa Peers: Tori is a chemistry teacher in her 40s who’s famous for her class on baking, …
