Best Books to Read Now: January 2016
Reminder/ Caveat/ Disclaimer: This is my (hopefully) monthly list of books I’ve read and enjoyed. These are not reviews, I do not include books I didn’t enjoy because life is too short to speak badly of books!
I can't believe I actually read books in December. All I remember of the month is unpacking boxes from Amazon and frantically driving around the county. I swear, one Saturday I used a whole tank of gas, shuttling children (and myself) here and there. No wonder I collapsed in a great heap after Christmas.
Anyway, I tried coming up with a theme for the month and it hit me: RETURN.
Let's see how that flows:
This is the third of her Bell Harbor series, but it could easily be read on its own. Unlike the first two, it's in alternating his/her POV's and it's about a reality show cameraman who
to his hometown of Bell Harbor, Michigan and finds that his mom has rented his house to a (unbeknownst to him) reality show star runaway. There's lots of snow (perfect for this time of year) and as always, plenty of Tracy Brogan humor.

This author has really become one of my favorite historical authors and these two books are in her Twist series. I didn't know what to expect of this series or what differentiated it from other series but OH MY GRAVY (to borrow an expression from my friend
). These are...different. In a good way! They are not your normal historicals, they each have a twist, perhaps sort of supernatural? wherein a goddess plays a little prank on the main characters. Anyway, I don't want to give too much away (and when you read them, you'll see how my
theme fits in here), but I thoroughly enjoyed these books and whenever the next one comes out, it will be a insta-one-click from me.
of Sarah Maclean! This is the first book in her new highly anticipated new historical romance series, which is being promoted as TMZ in Regency period. This was a break from her last series, it was lighter and funnier and actually, I kept drawing comparisons between this and LOVE ME SWEET, above, which also has the hero and heroine on a madcap road trip.
! My latest was released on 12/29 and I'm so pleased by the response from people! Yes, it's the second in the Sorority Sisters Mystery series, but it can be read on its own. This time, the sorority ladies of Sutton College are preparing for Rush and when another dead body is found in the Delta Beta yard, lots of caffeine is needed to deal with the resulting craziness.
Let me know what you've read and enjoyed lately and if you have any book reading resolution for 2016! I'm pretty stoked that I've been invited to join a proper book club so who know what I'll be posting around here in the future? It could be this
See y'all next month to find out!
