I’m a voracious reader, so I’m limiting myself to my favorite five books read in the last month and linking up with Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy where she hosts Twitterature the fifteenth of every month.
Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews – OK, I know her real name is Kathy Hogan Trocheck and she writes under that name. . . but I just don’t like those books as well. This one was almost like taking a beach vacation myself by the time I finished it. There’s just no higher praise than that!
Dead Ice by Laurell K Hamilton – I’d stopped reading her books for a while since they’d devolved (IMHO) into a series of sex scenes strung together with a thin plotline. But this one has Anita back at her zombie-raising best. She’s a total badass, just as she should be!
Wicked Charms by Janet Evanovich – She’s at her peak with the Lizzy and Diesel series in this one. A spectacular summer read! (But it’s co-authored – what’s up with that?!)
A Time for Everything by Mysti Parker – I’m picky about my historical romances. I actually want to learn something about the historical period the novel is set in while reading. This gave me all that and much more. I stayed up late until the night reading and had to move to the sofa for a couple of scenes that had me crying so hard I would have woken my husband. But trust me, it’s worth all the tears in the end!
The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson – This is a re-read for me, and I’m sure I’ll read it over and over until it falls apart and then buy another copy. It’s the perfect inspirational “baby steps” approach to changing anything. Financial independence, weight loss, parenting, marriage, cleaning – anything in your life you want to improve permanently.
