Well, in all this time we have not had any monthly wrap ups or updates on what we have been reading, so I thought it would be interesting to list all the books I have personally read since January, 2018 and give a quick line about how I felt about the books.
I am actually surprised by what books I have read, and how many I have read. Making this list is a good way to look back and reflect and see how much I’ve read. I think I may do this again!
I have been much better at logging my reading books with Goodreads. It’s a great way to track what I’ve read because I do literally forget books that I’ve read, especially ones that are not memorable. Continue reading “Midyear Book Update”
Summer is here and I’ve put together my summer reads for 2018. Anyone who knows me well knows that I love to read thrillers in the summer. This summer, my reading list is mixed with only a few thrillers in sight! Reason being is that I have read so many thrillers lately and I am looking for a change. Since last summer, I have read too many thrillers/mystery to count and now I am ready to read more of other genres.
In the mix bag of books, I am looking forward to getting stuck into some romance, mystery, humor and satire and just plain old page turning books! Continue reading “Summer Reads 2018: 10 Books On My Summer Reading List That I Can’t Wait To Start!”

I don’t know about you but I do love to read a good book and then watch the adaptation of the book on the big screen.
Invariably, I always prefer the book but it’s entertaining nevertheless to watch the movie.
Having said that, some of my favorite books turned into TV shows are done really well. These include A Game of Thrones, Outlander and The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead is based off the graphic novels. Both the graphic novels and adaptations are excellent!
Quite a few times I have discovered the great books after I’ve seen the show or movie. Who knew that there were so many books that become movies? Continue reading “Books To Movies 2018”

If you are like me, summer is a fantastic time to read lots of beach reads. I have been asked on numerous occasions to recommend a book for the beach by friends so this post is dedicated to them (they know who they are!).

Other times, it’s great to read a book that will keep you on your toes and keep you glued to the book. I preferred the latter this summer and have enjoyed reading mystery/thriller/crime genre. Continue reading “5 Best Thrillers To Read This Summer”
