4.5 ⭐️

This one was recommended by a bookstagramer I follow and I didn‘t read any description first. I wasn‘t expecting the difficult topics it would cover. I loved the way the author handled these subjects. I highly recommend!

Know My Name: A Memoir | Chanel Miller

I tried hard to like this & at about the halfway mark, I got really invested. I felt like she finally allowed emotions to come out. Then she lost me again. Even though I feel for her, the situation she was in, & the cause she‘s fighting for, the writing was just really repetitive & drawn out. My expectations could have been too high due to the reviews I read. I don‘t regret reading the book. I just was expecting more emotion & not as much polish.

MyNamesParadise I got to page 114 before having to return it to the library. I got back on the holds list for it. You‘re right, there‘s a lot of polish. 3y

I have high standards for Amy Harmon books. I have to give this one #fourstars although I really feel like that 5th star probably could‘ve been achieved if I‘d read the book rather than listened to it. I listen to a lot of books but this one was a little hard to follow in audio form. I‘m tempted to give it some time and then go back and read it. #amyharmon

I truly enjoyed listening to this book. Again, I think it took me a day, maybe two, to finish it. Great #slowburn. I can‘t remember now why I gave it #fourstars on goodreads. I really enjoyed it and can‘t remember any negatives.

I‘ve been off Litsy for a while so I‘m catching up on my reviews. 😄 This one started a little slow for me but I absolutely loved it in the end. Great storytelling. #fiction #fivestars

Emily92Bibliophile @Joseph5 Scribd is a good app. Not free ( in audiobook world you can‘t get a good free app that has recent audio books). Scribd is $8 a month but definitely worth it. Audiobooks and eBooks. Your local library would be a good option for free audiobooks. 3y

I had really high hopes for this book and I will say I was a little worried in the beginning. I caught myself skimming parts and just didn‘t care for the writing in the beginning. Butttt.... Mariana redeemed herself in the end. I fell in love again and her characters are just so realistic and loveable. ❤️ Second chance romances are hard to write and not always my favorites but Mariana did a great job with this one.

I became a huge fan of Kim Jones at Book Bonanza this year. The girl is hilarious. She hosted the closing ceremony and completely stole the spotlight. 😂 I‘d never read any of her books so I needed to give her a try. This wasn‘t what I was expecting. It was much more serious than I would expect from her. I did find it funny that she made Harper Sloan into a stripper. That was perfect. 🤣 #romantsy #badboy

Two more miles this morning. I might need to go on another walk this evening so I can finish this book! It‘s really starting to pick up. I tend to get more engrossed in audiobooks that I listen to while walking/running. I‘m able to focus on the story more without interruptions. #audiobook #mystery #bfc

This one was tough to read but the message was so worth it. It‘s a book everyone should read. I wish I had read it prior to meeting her last weekend! She was sweet and reserved but so endearing. I‘ll never forget how she stood with her readers rather than sitting behind a table. It gave the signing a more intimate feeling and helped make us feel like we were on the same level. ❤️ #authorsigning #romantsy #bookbonanza19

While waiting for Amy Harmon‘s new release, I thought I‘d re-read this one. I knew I‘d loved it before but couldn‘t really remember why. Now I know.

This book was way too predictable. I‘ve read too many with similar storylines. I caught myself skimming pages which isn‘t a good sign for me. This is my first book from this author and I had high hopes. I still might try one of their rom-coms but this one was a flop for me. #romantsy #bookbonanza19
