The Silent Patient was THE mystery thriller of 2019, with numerous friends and library patrons telling me I had to read it. I don’t know why it took me so long to pick this one up but I am glad I read it because I was hooked from the first page. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you like stories with a lot of twists and turns.
I read a lot of romances last year and one of the most enjoyable was Tessa Bailey’s “Fix Her Up.” So I was really excited to read her next book in the Hot & Hammered series “Love Her or Lose Her.” Bailey’s books are always fun with minimal angst and are good for a quick read.
This book has been EVERYWHERE recently and its popularity seems to have come out of nowhere. It has appeared on a bunch of best of lists and has been the pick for numerous book clubs. My library currently has 30 people waiting to get their hands on this book so the hype isn’t going anywhere. I usually steer clear of books that are popular just because they are but I had heard good things about this one. I am so glad I read this book because it was a beautiful, haunting read and I can’t recommend it enough.
Jasmine Guillory could write books as part of the “Wedding Date” series for the rest of her life and I would read every single one. They are just fun, quick, enjoyable romances with great in-depth characters and happily ever afters. This is the third in the series and I think I loved this one the most.
I am on a romance reading kick right now due to my reading group studying the genre so I was looking forward to reading this book based on the good reviews and the description: a romance set in a bookstore with literacy references and romance heroes straight from novels. However, this book really didn’t live up to my expectations despite it having some really good characters and being pretty well written.
I read this book as part of my Adult Reading Round Table’s paranormal romance meeting. I wanted to pick something a bit different from the vampire and werewolf books that have been very popular over the past few years….and I came across a whole sub-genre called dragon shifting. I had no idea what to expect and overall was surprised by this book.
This was a book I read for one of the many book clubs I am in and I am so glad I got the chance to finally pick it up as I had heard great things about it since it was published. This book did not disappoint and in fact exceeded my expectations. This is a highly recommend book for me.
This is the second Taylor Jenkins Reid book I’ve read in about 3 weeks and she has quickly become a must read author for me. This book didn’t grab me as quickly as Evelyn Hugo did but once I got into the story, I couldn’t put it down. This is another great book that I would highly recommend.
Sometimes a book comes along that is exactly what you think it’s going to be…like when a book is called “Rafe: A Buff Male Nanny.” I went into this book hoping to read a hot romance about two attractive people and that’s what I got. However, the actual story was pretty good and there was substance to the characters that I didn’t expect. This was a great contemporary romance that I would recommend to romance fans.
