My June 2024 Reads

Hello July: Today I share what I read in June. This month it will be a list of what I listened to, as all my reads were audiobooks. I really hope my reading mojo comes back soon as I’ve got a great book just waiting for me: The third Housemaid book by Freida McFadden! I actually started it, but life happened and I had to put it down.  Once I pick it back up I will start it over. I didn’t make it that far into it, so here is to trying again!

This month I will not have a most/least favorite as I gave all of these books four stars! Here are the books in the order I listened to them:

One Perfect Couple by Ruth Ware
One of the Boys by Jayne Cowie
A Daughter of Fair Verona by Christina Dodd

I enjoyed them all and their reviews will be coming soon!

My May 2024 Reads

We are at the beginning of June, so it’s time for my May reads!  There has been a lot going on personally for me which has backed up my reviews and posts, but I am still doing the best I can: If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you already know: I am in a separation leading to divorce, and just moved into MY own little studio apartment last Saturday, May 25th! Sage and Curry will be joining me in a few weeks. Once I am settled, the divorce goes through (my lawyer is VERY fast with this!), and life in general calms down, I am hoping to getting back fully to my reading and reviews in full force as much as  possible!

If by chance you feel led to help, here is my Amazon ‘Apartment Wish List’ which is actually needed things. This list changes as things are purchased and what I realize I need. Wish List

But enough of my drama, it’s time for my May 2024 reads. These were all audiobooks, one was a short story.

Here are the books in the order I finished them:

Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAlllister- 5 stars
If Something Happens to Me by Alex Findlay- 4 stars
Home is Where the Bodies Are by Jeneva Rose- 4.5 stars
People Like Them by Minka Kent (short story)

My favorite read was a re-read: Wrong Place Wrong Time.  Even though I am not a parent, it is just… WOW!!! This is also a book club read.

My ‘least favorite’ was the short story, People Like Them. It’s not that it was bad, with everything I had going on I honestly don’t remember that much about it. I do remember partly enjoying it, I will just have to listen to it again so I can properly review it.  Since it is a short story, that will be doable!!

Let’s hope that June is a much better month. It’s the start of a new chapter in my life. And let’s bring on some more reading!

My April 2024 Reads

It’s May 1st and here are my April reads! I’m slowly getting my reading back up, I got 6 books read or listened to and two of them were short stories.  Two were also advanced copies.

Here is a list of the books in the order I finished them:

Granite Harbor by Peter Nichols (Audio, Advanced copy) 2 stars
Just a Girl by Alyssa Cole (Audio, short story) 1 star
Baby X by Kira Peikoff (Kindle) 5 stars
Summers at the Saint by Mary Kay Andrews (Audio, Advanced copy) 4 stars
Anniebot by Sierra Greer (Audio) 4 stars
The Heart of a Mother by Julie Clark (Audio, short story) 4 stars

My favorite read was Baby X by Kira Peikoff. This one and Anniebot left me with a lot to think about with Science Fiction and Speculative Fiction.  Both are very good, but Baby X knocked it out of the park with everything!

My ‘least favorite’ was a short story:  Just a Girl.  It just let too much to be desired and did not work for me.
