Show Us Your Books {FLIPPING FINALLY}

I am here! I made it! Flipping finally made it for show us your books. These are actually just the ebooks I read the past few months, I have quite a few real books I've read as well. But, I wanted to AT LEAST get something out here for the link up, today. Most of my books were fun easy reads, with a few thrillers here and there. I also don't have anything below four starts this go round which is kind of cool. Honestly, all of them would be great to take on any trip, although some are series so makes sure you start at the beginning.

I love this author, I love the heroine and I love the era. This is book nine in the series and I've waited for it to get to our library for awhile. World War I is ending and Bess Crawford is beginning to finally think of life after the war. Of course she isn't able to just walk away without working on a mystery and this plot is a page turner. If you like historical fiction, check out this series.

While the saying goes "never judge a book by it's cover" I 100% took this book home because I loved the way the cover looked. I also am 100% a summary reader [ I know some people are anti reading summaries, not me] and found the plot intriguing. I will admit, I didn't care for the set up of the book at the beginning, not a fan of a ton of jumps from person to person to person. However, slowly everything started to come together and I couldn't wait to read the next person's story after one part. Jury is still out on the ending, but I LOVED all the flower [heehee] language and how well the author brought in kinds of flowers through the book. Great summer read for sure.

Hannah has been one of my favorite authors for years. Even before Nightingale. She is able to weave incredible tales so believable and often times so irritating too. Two sisters who couldn't be more different because of misconceptions from the past. I admit, this plot was easy to guess, but there were quite a few 'ohhhhhhs' to be had. Grab this one for the beach/pool/lake.

Oh Jack Reacher, you hottie. Well, at least to me. I love Reacher. I love his style, I love how he handles himself, I love how he always has a way out and I love how he works for the underdog. If you don't like suspense/action/mystery books this isn't for you. Reacher is a bad @ss though so if you're looking for a fun new hero to follow pick up this series. Child knows how to weave a story and keep you guessing every page.

Big fan of 'protect America' spy books. Coes introduces a new hero, Dewey Andreas, and the novel starts off with the first two pages. I was on the edge of my seat because of all of the twists and turns, but could also see some the story coming from a mile away. I am on the waiting list for the next book and am excited to have another journey to follow.

Do y'all Young Adult? I do, often. Sometimes they are the best books to read, right? This is the third of the Heist series and probably not my favorite. I enjoyed learning more about the characters and why they are the way they are [especially the hero, he's a cutie], but there were too many 'almost misses' and too many 'we've got this' twists. I kind of wanted more believablity, if that makes sense. However, this is perfect for passing the time, I recommend the WHOLE series.

Oh Sparks. I love him and I hate him. This one was predictable, but made me smile a lot. Cowboy books make me happy for some reason. If you like Sparks you'll like this book, and of course, vice versa. Good for a road trip, for the beach or just hanging out at the house. 

Okay, what is the newest book I must read? I've seen 'Girl Wash Your Face' making the rounds, is it worth the noise? I sometimes don't enjoy books that other people gush about [never read Gone Girl or the Shades of Grey series]. I need a fun new beach read, too!

  5. I am a big Jack Reacher fan too and love how he always helps the underdog. His last book felt a little off to because ... well, he didn't beat up a lot of bad guys. I sound so blood thirsty! I've heard great things about Charles Todd and need to try one of his books.

  15. The Flower Arrangement sounds fun! I added it to my TBR. :) Between Sisters sounds good too! I haven't read any Sparks in years, but I get what you're saying. He's good and predictable. I want to not like his books sometimes, but I often do like them. heeh XO - Alexandra
