No One to Trust

Loved, loved, loved! This was a fantastic book to end my reading year on. No complaints at all...once I started reading, I didn't want to finish. :)

Shattered Silence

I really feel like I've read more Margaret Daley books but this blog says it isn't so...hmm. I read this book quickly and it was okay. It kept me guessing and interested for the most part.

Determined to Matter

As hard as this book was to read (it is a non-fiction story) I really enjoyed it! Shannon and her family had a unique way of dealing with her diagnoses and reading the book made me wish I'd been reading their journey all along on their blog!

Merry Humbug Christmas

This was a perfect week-before-Christmas read! It was cozy and made me laugh multiple times!


Monday, December 16, 2013


I had heard of these authors but this was the first time I read them. I enjoyed it! It was lighthearted and easy to read.

Lessons in Love

I actually finished this book twice because I forgot that I had already finished it! Whoops! Cute, fun book though.

Harry Potter

These books are okay. I enjoyed the movies but they are just not my preferred type of reading.

Denali Dreams

I loved this book! It was a great introduction to two new authors for me, too.

Heart of the Country

I found out that this is actually being made into a movie! I look forward to seeing it :-)

I really enjoy Dani's books! They are intriguing and keep me guessing!

Mortal Danger

 I enjoyed the short stories in this book. I found the longer one too drawn out for my liking :-)

Killer Book of Cold Cases


Very interesting stories, some of them were a bit drawn out with unnecessary details.

Dangerous Passage


I hadn't read any books by this author before but was pleasantly surprised! Yet another fantastic author to keep up-to-date with!

Thursday, October 31, 2013


I've heard of Jordyn Redwood and her books before but never read one. Oh my, what a treat it was. I loved the suspense and medical aspects both and it had me itching to finish it when I was at work. She will definitely be an author to follow!

This is probably the longest book I've read all year and it took me a while to get through it due to my schedule. However, Dee is an awesome writer and I was surprised at some of the twists in this book.

Barefoot Summer

This was such a cute read! I don't know much about sailboats so I did feel like some of it went over my head but overall a nice book!

Chasing Hope


I really enjoyed this one and hope to see more books from Kathryn soon!

Made to Last


A cute, fun read and definitely an author I will be keeping my eye on!

Grace Unplugged


Melody's books are usually ones I really want to love, but just can't get into as much as some of my favorite authors. It was still a cute story!

I Can Barely Take Care of Myself


I enjoy Jen on Chelsea Lately but found the book to be pretty repetitive of itself.

The Caretaker's Son


A quick read but parts of it moved slowly or haltingly at times. The first half was easier and more enjoyable for me than the second.

The Icing on the Cake


Took a while for me to get through it, but that was due to my schedule. An enjoyable book with likeable characters!

Saturday, September 7, 2013



I really enjoyed this suspenseful novel. I knew the killer was close but it it still drew me in to find out more details!

Bridging Two Hearts


The main character in this book was snarky and I loved it!

A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet


I think I was just not Southern enough to really enjoy this book thoroughly!

Special Delivery


There was a twist in this book I half-saw coming. I don't think I have read many (or any?) books by this author but I really enjoyed it!

Friday, August 9, 2013

Angels in the Fire


I really enjoy true stories and this was no exception! However, some of the parts of the book really dragged out.

Picture Perfect

I enjoyed the snarkiness of these true-to-life characters. She's an author I've read a fair amount of in the past.

Still Growing

I read this book soon after reading Kirk's mother's book, so some of the same stories came up, but I really enjoyed it!

I'll See You Again

While this was a horribly sad story, it was well written and very interesting to me!

Dinner with the Smileys


I am not from a military family but this was a random pickup book from the library that I really enjoyed! I admired the family's perseverance through the year-- what a neat family project! 

Rosemary Cottage

I really enjoy Colleen's writing these days! Her style of writing draws me in and this book had me second-guessing what I thought was happening!

But Enough About Me

This was more of a secular book than I'm used to, but it was entertaining to hear of the author's experiences with celebrities!!

A Full House of Growing Pains


To be honest, I do not even know who Kirk Cameron is but I am familiar with Candace Cameron as I watched Full House growing up. This is a book written by Kirk & Candace's mom and tells behind-the-scenes stories of their family and how they became television stars.

The Kids Are All Right


This was a random library pick-up but a very interesting read about four siblings and their lives that take different paths after their parents both die. It does have language and some adult talk.

Seaside Blessings


Another great read by Irene- there was a twist I wasn't expecting and it kept me in suspense. :)

Deadly Devotion


This is a new author for me, but one I enjoyed. I enjoy a good mystery now and then!

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

The Face of the Earth

I really enjoyed this one! It definitely kept me in suspense! :-)

Touching Heaven

The little girl I'm watching asked why I was reading a book about dead kids...but the topic interests me. A super fast read!

That Certain Summer

I love Irene's suspense books and it turns out she's a wonderful contemporary author as well! I flew through this book in less than a day, staying up late to finish it. :-)
