It has been six months since I wrote a blog post. Woah.
First, sorry. Things has been kind of hectic, and I just let writing slide. My husband was back in school, my son is crazy (in a good, energetic, terrible threes kinda way), and from October on was crazy at my job, then it was the holidays, and such, and such.
Basically, I just let my blog go. I was still writing reviews though, and you can see those in the following:
Mississippi Blood by Greg Iles: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/book-review-mississippi-blood/article_49b191bd-aa19-5035-8a9c-ba2fbb279d33.html (go read this, it is awesome!)
The Man Who Loved Birds by Fenton Johnson: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/the-man-who-loved-birds-author-leaves-major-holes/article_51942091-d79a-5490-b78a-6575b51d3371.html (the ending of this book greatly upset me, and I felt there were holes, but it was an interesting story).
The Bourbon Thief: A Family with Bourbon in its Blood and Blood on its Hands by Tiffany Reisz: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/bourbon-deliversa-book-of-intrigue/article_1b5a12c6-b962-5a36-b0b6-546a1bb60ffd.html (5 Star book. Loved it)
The Birds of Opulence by Crystal Wilkinson: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/opulence-a-reminder-of-culture-and-community/article_8cfb1a06-7c6a-5a4b-b833-807ff383550d.html (Again interesting read but I felt things could have been more in depth or less jumpy)
The Blind Astronomer’s Daughter by John Pipkin: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/astronomy-novel-falls-short-of-the-heavens/article_51af751e-7572-5831-8f3f-547667a38644.html (the title says my feelings. Fell short. Was really disappointed).
The First Hostage by Joel C. Rosenberg: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/journalist-is-on-target-with-fast-paced-sequel/article_553db823-00a8-5248-a7b7-10c7cc01d1e8.html (great sequel, fast paced)
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: http://www.bgdailynews.com/community/harry-potter-and-the-cursed-child-reunites-old-friends/article_8258034d-483f-5f91-b2bc-1faec1e2a6f3.html (great!)
That should about catch it, and I will update my publications page. Overall, I’ve read quite a few. For my goodreads challenge of 2016, I read 50 books. I’m hoping for 55 this year, and plan to exceed that – I’ve already read 25! Here is the list: https://www.goodreads.com/user_challenges/7034581
I will be reviewing a few of those over the next week. I have several that will be eventually published in the Bowling Green Daily News. I also will be doing a post over the SOKY Bookfest!
Have a great day guys!
