My Reading Round Up

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been reorganizing all my books. This is a 1/3 of what I tackled. As I dusted and rearranged my books, I realized it was time for a reading round up here on the blog. Especially since I’ve given myself a Goodreads Reading Challenge of reading 39 books this year.

But first I want to disclose that I am now an Amazon Affiliate. The legal disclosure will now appear in the footer of my blog going forward. What that means is that any time I include an Amazon link on this blog, if you click on it and make a purchase, Amazon will then pay me a percentage based on what you buy. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, but it’s a way for me to make a little more money and also track if sales happen from my links.

It in no way impacts my book reviews because I always write positive reviews of books because I feel there is an inherent conflict of interest in authors reviewing books and giving  negative reviews of other authors. If I don’t like a book, I simply don’t review it.

So far I have read 13 books this year. Instead of posting all those reviews here, I’ll just give you a one-sentence thought excerpted from my review. (The books are listed in chronological order of when they were read.)

The world building is exquisite and I never felt lost–not for a single second.


The sequel was a terrific follow up and had me hooked from the first page.


This is the best end to a trilogy that I’ve ever read.


I am in awe of how Ms. Clare can loop all these plot threads together so perfectly.


This was a quick read and sure to delight fans of feel good romances with a Christian touch.


My last book release had me dreading promotion, but Tim Grahl’s handbook has given me the tools and the perspective to dive into the next book launch with gusto.


Once again Gretchen Archer delivers a lightning-fast, fantastically fun read in her Davis Way series. I’ve read every single one and each one is better than the last one–which is saying a lot because the first book was awesome!


I would highly recommend this book to people with a passion for the ocean, an interest in marine environmental issues, or who wonder what ocean exploration might be like.


Intricate plotting, cool mystery, sweet romantic subplot, and a host of Hollywood stars invading Star City, Utah, all conspired to create a great read.


The concept for this book immediately grabbed my attention with a fate changer and a cursed fate.


Wow, I am a definite fan of Dawn Metcalf and will read whatever she writes next!


Little do they know that their pranks will awaken the actual ghosts and draw them into a terrifying secret…


I had to read my own book again to work on the sequel. It counts toward my reading challenge. 😉 A time travel murder mystery filled with unbelievables–ghosts, spells, and curses.

What have you been reading? Are you participating in the Goodreads Reading Challenge this year?
