Friday Reads: May 29

Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi

So far I’m really liking this carefree story! The romance between Pablo and Lee is very endearing, and also complicated!

Friday Reads: May 22

I began reading the book Inconvenient Daughter by Lauren K. Sharkey. I received this story through NetGalley and Kaylie Jones Books. From what I learned about this book so far, it centers around a young woman struggling to find peace with her identity as an adopted person.

Friday Reads: May 15

I have two stories to share:

Beach Read by Emily Henry

I purchased Beach Read through Book of the Month. I loved the premise of a light read with two writers in a friendly competition, leading (possibly) to something more!

Love, Art and Other Obstacles by Sadira Stone

I received a copy of this book from the author! So far it’s a very steamy story, with an ‘enemies-to-lovers’ trope. It has some LGBT action as well!

I guess I’m in a ‘Romance Story’ mood this weekend!

Friday Reads: May 8

I’m currently reading two books:

A Woman’s Place: Inside the Fight for a Feminist Future by Kylie Cheung

A huge thank you to Edelweiss and North Atlantic Books for providing me this digital copy! Kylie Cheung shares her experiences as a feminist at the forefront of the Fourth Wave. She brings to light the strong presence social media possesses to promote women’s issues, as well as the hurtful effects of mysogyny and miscommunication.

Until I Find You by Rea Frey

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martins Press for this digital copy! Rea Frey’s third novel centers on a young widow searching for her son after he mysteriously vanishes. The fact that this person is also suffering from a degenerative eye condition makes things even more interesting!

Today I’m about a third of the way through Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson. I love Elisabeth’s interactions with Nathaniel! She’s broadening her understanding about other magical folk around her while she is fighting to clear her name.

I also began reading ‘Until I Find You’ by Rea Frey. This is Frey’s third novel. I like the journey the main character is undertaking as she faces extreme challenges!

Today I’m in the process of reading two books! One of them is a middle grade fantasy, and the other is a Romantic Suspense tale.

Silent Shadows by Natalie Walters

This is the third book in the Harbored Secrets series, set in Georgia. I received this book through the Revell Reads Blogger Program. So far I read the first 50 pages, and it’s holding my attention!

Story Magic by Laurel Gale

I received this book through NetGalley and North Star Press. It’s a middle grade fantasy, with a young girl out on a journey to find her brother.

Friday Reads: April 10

I’m about halfway through Lobizona by Romina Garber. I’m just swept away by the reality of the Miami, Florida setting and the Argentinian folklore woven into the story. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a ride once things pick up!

I did discover one thing that I’m not too thrilled about…nothing story related, but the face that the publication date is pushed back to August. I should have expected it, considering the pandemic we’re all experiencing has caused delays and postponements all around. I was surprised about the news, but I can wait. It will just build up the excitement!

Friday Reads (and talks with loved ones): April 3

This week I’m reading ‘Get a Life, Chloe Brown’ by Talia Hibbert. So far I’m really liking it. I didn’t expect for the book to be so humorous! The chemistry between Chloe and her family (most especially the handyman) is very vibrant!

Throughout all the craziness of working remotely, and establishing a new work/life routine while we all handle isolation, I’m trying to remind myself to stay calm. I’ve learned to maintain watching news coverage at a minimum–about 45 minutes tops. Anything above that and I get depressed, and very stressed out. I check in on friends and family regularly, and pray that they stay safe and healthy.

I came across this poster on Google, and I wanted to share it with you all:

Hopefully those better days will come soon!
