With this scenery how could you not enjoy a book???? I read 5 books just that weekend. My overall goal for 2018 was to read 50 books with 20 of them being new to me authors. So to say which ONE was the best, well that's sort of like picking between doughnuts...
|How can you pick just one?|
My favorite young adult is Heart of Thorns by Bree Barton
In the ancient river kingdom, where touch is a battlefield and bodies the instruments of war, Mia Rose has pledged her life to hunting Gwyrach: women who can manipulate flesh, bones, breath, and blood. The same women who killed her mother without a single scratch.
But when Mia's father announces an alliance with the royal family, she is forced to trade in her knives and trousers for a sumptuous silk gown. Determined to forge her own path forward, Mia plots a daring escape, but could never predict the greatest betrayal of all: her own body. Mia possesses the very magic she has sworn to destroy.
Now, as she untangles the secrets of her past, Mia must learn to trust her heart…even if it kills her.
My favorite 'self-help' book...which I generally don't read because usually they want to give up doughnuts and vodka and well that isn't happening. But Jen Sincero never said that!!!!
In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bitesized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to: Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want, Create a life you totally love. And create it NOW, Make some damn money already. The kind you've never made before.
By the end of You Are a Badass, you'll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can't change, how to change what you don't love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.
And my best fiction book... is by a 'I'll-buy-everything-she-writes' author... Rebecca Zanetti
Hide. That's all Pippa can do to escape the terror chasing her. But now that she's off the grid in a safe house, she finds plenty of interesting things to watch through the window. Like her new neighbor, with his startling green eyes, killer smile, and sexy bad-boy tattoo . . .
Run. Malcolm West is fleeing the hell he unleashed in his last assignment as an undercover cop. A backwoods bungalow sounds like the perfect place to start over. Until he discovers he's been set up . . .
Fight. Someone's gone to a lot of trouble to bring them together. No matter how much he resents that, and his own driving needs, Malcolm will have to dig deep and let loose the banished killer inside himself, or Pippa's fears could come true faster than the flip of a bolt in a lock . . .
And while I was reading really great books, I developed a taste for coffee. Well my hubby was it's not coffee but I say yes. It's Donut shop k-cup– coconut mocha mixed with 2 tablespoons Hills Brother Mocha Cappuccino with a really really hearty splash of Coffee Mate coconut cream creamer – yummmmmmmyyyy!" I'm doing a give away on my young adult facebook page - Tasarla Romaney. Drop by sometime and tell me what is in my cup for a chance to win a coffee or tea sampler.
Until next month!
