 Considering that this blog actually started out as a book blog, I can’t believe that I haven’t done this before.  Following the lead of Jenn from A Beautiful Zen, I am going to show you what I am currently reading at the moment.  Here is a secret you may or may not know about me.  I read anywhere from 3-5 books a week.  Yes, I read fast.  I don’t know how I do, but I do and I always have since I learned to read at 4 years old.  I’ve grown a bit bored with traditional book blogging, and I’ve been working for a while now on a completely new format to give you feedback on books I’ve read, recommend and why!  Look out for that to appear in August!  In the mean time, here is a look at what I am currently reading right now.

This Month in Books – June 2014

28 June, 2014

Another month has come to a close and I’ve got some pretty good books to show for it.  Compared to other months, I received a relatively small amount of books for review in June!  I have already received the bulk of the fall 2014 books I was interested in, so now I am severely cutting back on just what and how much I accept for review.  With a few exceptions, expect my monthly book haul posts to be much, much smaller.  My goal now is to catch up on all my outstanding reviews and come up with a set schedule for book reviews on the blog.  Also, I’m thinking of doing a bunch of monthly mini-reviews where I highlight the best and worst points of the books that I read that month.

For Review

White Collared Part Four: Passion by Shelly Bell

23 June, 2014

My Thoughts

 And here I thought that it was all figured out back in part three!  But no, it wasn’t just loose ends that were tied up in White Collared Part Four: Passion.  Indeed, loose ends were tied up, but everything you thought you already knew from reading parts one through three was pretty much thrown right out the window.  Honestly, I should have seen it coming, but I didn’t.

Eyes on You by Kate White

17 June, 2014

My Thoughts

I’m not going to lie, I kind of have a little bit of a girl crush on Kate White.  Okay, maybe it’s not really a girl crush as much as it is a lot of admiration for her and all that she has accomplished.  The Sixes was the first of her books that I had ever read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it and I tend to keep an eye out for her books ever since.  Well she has done it again with the soon to be released Eyes on You.

White Collared Part Three: Revenge by Shelly Bell

16 June, 2014

My Thoughts

Welcome to White Collared Part Three: Revenge!

Man what a ride it has been and we are not over yet.  There is still part four left to go, but man what a ride it has been already. This very sexy tale of whodunit just keeps moving from strength to strength with every page we turn.  Now that is my kind of story progression.  Honestly, this one will keep you guessing right until the very last page and even when we find out just who the murderer is, we are still left with the why of it all?
