I started February by reading the third book in the “Last Year” series. I actually bought this book back in December when I’d read book one and two, but got burned out on the series and never started book three. As I was scrolling through the books on my Kindle App, I noticed the third book and figured I’d better read it since I’d paid for it! Overall it ended up being pretty good and had enough of a cliffhanger at the end that I now can’t wait to read the fourth (and last) book in the series.
I then did some fluffy romantic reading, nothing major, just the fluffy boy and girl meet, there’s some reason they can’t be together, then end up together and live happily ever after. This was at the height of Reagan being sick, and up on and off all night, so I definitely needed some light reading to get me through. It also helped that all of these books were free from Amazon!
During this time I did spice it up a little by reading “Attack your Day,” which was a book on different time management skills. This was another free book, but actually ended up being pretty good and had a lot of useful strategies.
Towards the middle-end of the month my Mom went through a “Wild Riders” series phase and bought the last three books in the series that we hadn’t read. Strangely enough we’d read book one (Riding Wild) and book four (Riding the Edge) a while ago, but never got the other books. Honestly I wasn’t in the mood for this type of book and never really got completely into them, but since my Mom had actually bought them I figured I probably better read them. They were decent books, but I just wasn’t in the mood (probably lack of sleep!).
In between the Wild Riders books I went ahead and bought the newest McCarthys of Gansett Island book. It was a pretty good read. Nothing amazing, but it continued the story and the characters that I’ve grown attached to and that made it worth it.
And last, I was really in the mood for a Stephanie Plum type book, but those had started to go downhill about 5-6 books ago. So, I decided to try something new. Strangely enough I saw an advertisement on Facebook about current deals on Amazon books and Whiskey Rebellion was discussed. It sounded interesting, so I went ahead and paid my whopping $0.99 cents and gave it a try. It was actually pretty good and made me laugh out loud in a number of places; even in the middle of the night when I was trying to be quiet and nurse a baby back to sleep! The book definitely wasn’t as good as the Stephanie Plum books back in their prime, but it was a solid book with some much needed humor!
For March I’ve already bought the next book in the Addison Holmes Whiskey series and the last book in the Last year series! In addition, I also picked up some free books that look pretty good. With all these books to read March is looking like it will be a good month for reading!
