Very well written. He doesn't have answers, he's trying to figure out out like the rest of us. He's honest and willingly bars his mistakes for all to see.

"But if you think of love as a verb, an action, then the sentence becomes a promise for action, stipulating your commitment to that other person in the moment, in that day, to act with love, in love, anchored with clear and positive intent."

Book 11 of the Leaphorn and Chee series. Always a good series to read. This book had them trying to solve three murders across several jurisdictions.

I'm all about empowerment this year! This is really a great book. It's about becoming the person you were meant to be, but not doing it in a way that is harmful to others.

It was a cute book. The only reason I'm saying So-So is because there were placed, I felt, dragged to much; there were things that could have been left out. Otherwise it's a light, fun read.

This is a 5 out of 5 book. A lot of it may seem like coming sense, but we aren't living that common sense.

As you can tell I haven't updated in awhile. I'm making my way there the Great American Read list and I'm reading them anyway I can. Other than The Help, this has been my other favorite to date. Well written, good story.

Another book from the Great American Read. I liked it, but didn't love it. It was well written and realistic.

I was not overly impressed with this book. I tried to figure out why it was considered a children's classic the entire time I was reading it. I won't be reading the rest of the books.

Before I write a review there are 2 things I should confess. I have not read any works by any of the Bronte's. Nor have I seen any adaptations of their works. Next, I stared this book in July 2017. Shortly after I feel into a depression that prevented me from reading for months. As for the book, I enjoyed reading it but did not love it. The concept and execution were interesting and done well. All in all it was a good read.

My current read. I actually started this in July 2017 but feel into a depression so set it aside. I picked it up last week to finish it and am really enjoying it.

I loved this book! It was a quick read. I don't want to stop reading it once I started. I can't remember the last time I wanted to sit all day and read a book cover to cover. The book is about a family of abstaining vampires. The parents haven't told the children they are vampires, leading to the events of the book.

Shutter Island | Dennis Lehane
Pickpick

I originally picked up this book because I like the movie and hadn't realized it was based on a book; I wanted to compare. I was surprised at how well the movie followed the book. The book is a very well written suspense novel that keeps you engaged through the entire novel. I found myself wanting to continue reading even when I was so tired I couldn't keep my eyes open.

I have posted in awhile and that makes me sad. I've read a few books since my last post but currently I'm reading Shutter Island. I'm not too far into it yet but I'm really enjoying it.

Windfallen | Jojo Moyes
Pickpick

This was the first Jojo Moyes book I've read. I know, I know, I haven't read Me Before You yet!?! I really liked her style of writing. I'm always a sucker for a book that goes between the past and the present. The characters were wonderfully written and relatable. I especially loved Daisy and her growth and developing through the book.

I really enjoyed this take on the Cinderella story. It was fun to have it set in the future. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series now.

I loved this book! It was a hoot to listen to. If you're a Gilmore Girls fan, this is a book you will enjoy. She talks a lot about her time on Gilmore Girls both the first time around and the Netflix episodes. They are funny and sad and wonderfully awesome. I laughed and cried and didn't want the book to end.

I listened to this book so I missed a few parts of it, but caught the jist of it. Overall, it's a very interesting story about the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary and it's contributor's. It's not the type of book is normally puck up and read so I was happy that I could listen to it instead. If you enjoy history and the English language, you'll enjoy this book.

I just read a blurb about this book in the Shelf Awareness email and it sounds very intriguing. It's definitely high up on my TBR list now.

I am learning so much from this book. It's a biography that reads more like a novel, but the information packed in it, WOW! I even recommend it to a friend that isn't a reader and she asked to borrow it when I was done.

Although I was looking forward to reading I Let You Go I realized how much traveling I was doing in the next 6 weeks so I decided to read a book on my iPad. I chose this one because I just watched The 60's documentary that CNN did a few years ago. I just started so no real thoughts on it yet.
