My November 2023 Reads

Today is November 30th and I am sharing with you what I read this month. I listened to four audiobooks for November. The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Woman in Me by Britney Spears- 4 stars
The Name Drop by Susan Lee- 4 stars
Forget Me Not by Julie Soto- 2 stars
Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros- 4 stars

My favorite read was The Name Drop. It was a sweet, cute, and fun YA read!

My ‘least favorite’ was Forget Me Not.   This one was a buddy read with my friend Beccie, who ended up DNF’ing it.  Maybe one day we will have a successful buddy read!

My October 2023 Reads!

We are now in November, Thanksgiving is just THREE weeks away and then Christmas will be here before we know it! This is just crazy! Time really does fly by as you get older!

I read six books in total for October: Four on audio, one in Kindle, one in paperback. The books are listed below in the order I finished them:

The Only Girl in Town by Ally Condie- 2.5 stars
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt- 4 stars
The Night House by Jo Nesbø- 3 stars
The Night of the Sleepover by Kerry Wilkinson- 3.5 stars
Triumphant! One Woman’s Journey from Prison to Purpose by Jessica Roberts- 4 stars
Kindred by Octavia Butler- 4.5 stars

My favorite read was Kindred. This was actually my third time listening to it.  This time it was a book club read ( My suggestion!).

My ‘least favorite’ was The Only Girl in Town. It just ended up being very different from what I thought it was going to be.

My September 2023 Reads!

Today is October 1st, and I am sharing the books I read in September! We are heading to the end of 2023, which is just crazy!

I read eight books in total for September: Six on audio and two on Kindle. The books are listed in the order I finished the books:

Bright Lights, Big Christmas by Mary Kay Andrews- 4 stars
The Last Girls Standing by Jennifer Dugan- 3.5 stars
Missing by Ruby Speechley- 4 stars
The Sight by Melanie Golding- 3 stars
Her Husband’s Mistake by Daniel Hurst- 4.5 stars
The Coworker by Freida McFadden- 4 stars
Who Haunts You by Mark Wheaton- 3 stars
Tender is the Flesh by Agustina Bazterrica- 4 stars

My favorite read was Her Husband’s Mistake. I was able to listen to an alc (advanced listening copy) and it was just released yesterday (9/30).  Don’t read Amazon’s book description or you will be spoiled by too much for such a short book! If you read Goodreads description you are good: That’s the one that I read and was not spoiled.  Which is why I think I enjoyed it as much as I did. I am positive that my rating would have been lower if I had been spoiled

My ‘least favorite’ was Who Haunts You. It just didn’t really work for me.

I also got to #PopYourself! This is where you can make a Funko of yourself on Funko’s website!  Funko Jessica is so cute! My Funko self has a book (of course!) and 2 cats. You can do two max, I would have done three otherwise since I have three cats!

Here’s my Funko self! You can also order it to be made!  Which I did! Of course I will post when it arrives!!!
