War has destroyed our world. A council creates colonies where people must live under strict rules. Outlaws refuse to live like this, so they live in the exiled lands always being hunted by the Enforcers. Hudson escapes the colonies and meets up with Conner and his crew. Hudson and Conner have a steamy relationship until he finds out who she really is. Can he get past that? I loved the characters, the world, and the 🔥🔥 scenes.

Well, I grabbed this book after seeing a review on Litsy. My husband picked up the book and read it first. He enjoyed it but said there were parts that I wouldn't like so I passed on it. He really enjoyed it tho and since he doesn't have Litsy I put a review up for him.

Another great mystery involving alchemy and paintings. The characters are enjoyable.

Tia focuses mainly on the dogs that made the biggest impacts on the lives of her and her family. I laughed and I cried. The homeless animals have been so fortunate to have Villalobos taking care of them. I appreciate all the education and work that Tia and Villalobos has done. This is a great book if you want to learn how Tia got started in rescue and some big adventures she has had with these dogs.

I loved the finale of this series. Kit is an enjoyable character. The action is exciting as always and storylines were finished up in a way that I appreciated.

Well at first I didn't like this book but it kept getting better and better. I listened to the book and I think the reason I didn't like it at the beginning is because I wasn't paying enough attention. And this is a story where you need to pay attention. My favorite scene is when some of the characters are in court and one in particular is being questioned...

rretzler That seems to happen to me more and more when I listen to audiobooks. I find that my mind has just wandered off and i don‘t have any idea what‘s happening in the book! 3mo

This book was action packed! I like how this story tied into the first. I thought this would be the big finale but the ending leads into the next big adventure. I can't wait.

The 2nd K9 book in this series was action packed! We get to see the characters we enjoyed from the 1st book and that was fun. I like the storyline and a bit of a surprise towards the end. I've already started reading book 3.

Next Year in Havana | Chanel Cleeton

I wouldn't normally be drawn to a book like this but I'm trying to read books from Reese Witherspoon's book club. But I really enjoyed it! A woman takes her grandmother's ashes back to Cuba and while there learns about her grandma's past and what it is like living in Cuba. And then there are flashbacks to when her grandma was a young lady. This book is not only a romance but also provides insight to life in Cuba.

mc916 This book hit close to home! The story reminded me of my great aunts when they left Cuba and the stories they told. 4mo
OneCent76 @mc916 I would love to hear their stories. 4mo
mc916 So many! And many more that were taken to the grave! It‘s sad, really, as none of them ever went back, not even to visit. My grandfather always said he‘d only go back if Castro was overthrown. He passed in 2002. He lived 46 years in a small town in Illinois, my aunt and uncle born there and raised as Cuban Americans. My father was 8 when he arrived so his memory is Cuba is barely there. I‘m DYING to go! 4mo

This book started out slow, getting bogged down by all of the descriptions. I felt so bad for Kya, pretty much all alone in the marsh. The end is a surprise that I had to read a 2nd time to make sure I read it right!

K9 series. I liked the beginning of this series. The dog and his new partner are both in mourning and not getting along very well. Jules has her siblings and is on the run to a new town for a fresh start. She has a lot to hide and the last thing she needs is to fall in love with a cop. I thought this book had a lot of action. I didn't like how quick the ending was but might wrap up in bk 2.

CrowCAH If you like K-9 stories , try this one by one of my fellow #MittenLitten RWA authors 5mo

This was a pretty good book and by pure luck I started with the first in the series. The sex scenes were super steamy and while they were good, they did take over, putting a pretty decent storyline on the back burner. I liked the old lady Uma works for and she has a past I would love to read. I will probably read more in this series.

This is an interesting book. I kept thinking how confusing the story was - all the twists, flashbacks, deceptions. I was worried that I was missing something until the authors admitted how confusing the story is, like an octopus with the legs going all over the place. Even with all of the confusion I enjoyed the story. I did not see the ending and had an "ohhhh wow" moment.

This book was a little over the top. The sex scenes lasted way too long. The story was a little corny. The characters were likeable enough. It's part of a series and I'm not sure I care to read the others.

I am in a Bible study group and we are watching the videos that go along with this book. Disappointment. It's all around us at varying degrees. How do we deal with it? How do we learn from it? And where should we turn to get us through it? This is a pretty good book that makes you think of things you may not have.

Wow. What a depressing story! I really enjoyed it but it is sad. Not just because Lydia has died (not a spoiler) but what happened with the family before and after her death. I like that it was set in the 70s.

Buechersuechtling Yes, I was also impressed by this book. Will you read “Little fires everywhere”, too❓ 5mo

Anna is a complex person. At times in her book I don't like her and other times I love her. She is very sarcastic and funny. She had good stories to share about her life and how she got started in acting. Make sure you read the questions for further discussion at the end!

I'm on a roll with this series haha. Unlike the other books, the main female character is not a super outdoorsy capable person. But she is fearless and willing to try anything. She needs to find her dad who is supposed to be in a cabin and the only way to get there is hiking. And there are bad guys after him too. She hires George, the strong & silent type, to get her there. Lots of things happen and it's another great story by this author

Another funny installment of this series. Stephanie's life makes me tired! I would love to see the storyline progress though. Pick a man! Marry him! Kids! The storylines that would come from these milestones would be priceless entertainment! But I keep reading, knowing that the outline is the same, because they still make me laugh.

Sharpeipup I wish she‘d pick too but at least you can count on a laugh from her 6mo

I looked up info on this author and the other book I just read by her is not a MC book but part of a search and rescue series. So I grabbed the 1st one and enjoyed it just as much! There is romance and mystery and I really love the combo. The characters are likeable and the situations believable. I have found a new favorite author.

This is not your typical MC book. This is a romance novel with a strong yet quirky leading lady and the man in her life is not all domineering and obnoxious. There is action, a few laughs, and 2 people that actually take their romance at a slower pace than most books. I plan on reading more by this author.

I had high hopes for this book. It had potential to be scary but it didn't follow through. It's a teen book but felt more juvenile. The ending was all kinds of crazy, like the author didn't know how to end it or how to even successfully carry it over to the sequel. It'd be a fun read for an 11-13 yr old. 2019 SWON TRC

I didn't think I would enjoy this book. It started out pretty corny and I thought it was going to be a lost cause. But it got much better. It deals with self esteem, body shaming, love, friendship and a few other things thrown in. There are some lines that had me LOL for real. It is a great book for teen girls. I read this for the 2019 SWON TRC, which is in its last week.

This book...haunting, sad. I was cheering for Mary the entire time and so sad when she hit every roadblock possible. And then the end is so shocking and a tad confusing. Mary killed a baby, allegedly, and after spending time in jail she is put in a horrible group home. And then she finds herself pregnant. Will she be allowed to keep her baby after allegedly killing another when she was younger? 2019 SWON TRC

This is an amazing book set in Germany when the wall separated Berlin. It follows a family, specifically a young girl, that deals with the father and brother on one side and the rest of the family on the other. They attempt an escape to west Berlin to meet up with the father and brother and what happens leading up to it is sad and stressful. This book does an excellent job putting us in Berlin during a very scary and sad time. SWON TRC 2019

The author tells us how the show got started, what dating shows were around before and what came after. I wanted to find out if the producers encourage the Bachelor/Bachelorette to keep certain people around, and they do (duh). Also what the interview and contract is all about. It's a crazy way of finding love and very few of these relationships last. (Again, duh) But I can't help but watch!

Stephanie and her friends are always funny. But it's the same thing over and over again. I need her to make a decision on a guy. I need some progression in the storyline. But, Evanovich still comes up with crazy scenarios for Grandma, Lula, and even Stephanie and it keeps me coming back for more.
